This card is our first from Bulgaria!  Nadezhda writes “Koprivshtitsa is huddled in the mountain folds, 111 east of our capital Sofia.  It still preserves the atmosphere of the Bulgarian National Revival period from the 19th century.  The town boasts a large number of architectural monuments from this period, 383 in all, most of which have been restored to their original appearance.  Collections of ethnographical treasures, old weapons, National Revival works of art, fine fretwork, household weaves and embroidery, national costumes and typical Bulgarian jewelry have also been preserved.  It was here the first shot of the April uprising against the Ottoman occupation was fired in 1876.”
This card came to us from Finland, from a person who lived in Tallinn, Estonia. 
This card came to us from New Mexico, USA.  Jill is from Taiwan and says the following. “Here is a little about my culture hopefully is new to you.  We believe that women are especially weak after birth, so the tradition forbids women from taking a shower because they might get a cold!  Some women will go as far as a month without washing their hair!  Most women still follow this tradition, but less extreme.”
