Thank you, Marina from Ukraine!
Marina likes chocolate, white flowers, books, music, films, travelling and spring, but she hates winter. I also like most of these things. And I have no reason to hate winter in the Netherlands because they are mild usually.
Marina has sent me this great postcard with a map of Ukraine and six lighthouses on it.
