Postcard from Germany.

GHAradia:Le M'ZAB ALgeria

 Located 600 km south of Algiers, in the heart of the Sahara Desert, the five Ksour (fortified villages) of the M'Zab Valley form an extraordinarily homogeneous ensemble in the desert, the mark of a sedentary and urban civilisation possessing an original culture that has, through its own merit, preserved its cohesion throughout the centuries. Comprised of Ksour and palm groves of El-Atteuf, Bounoura, Melika, Gharda├»a and Beni-Isguen (founded between 1012 and 1350), the M'Zab Valley has conserved practically the same way of life and the same building techniques since the 11th century, ordered as much by a specific social and cultural context, as by the need for adaptation to a hostile environment, the choice of which responded to a historic need for withdrawal and a defensive imperative.
Thank you Habib for this beautiful card.

Mangyongda Native House,Pyongyang,DPR  Korea(NORTH KOREA).
This is the birthplace of Kim Il-Sung, ruler of North Korea until 1994. Although Kim was probably born near Pyongyang, it is unknown whether this is the actual location. The site, dedicated in 1947, comprises several grass roof houses built in a style commonly found in northern Korea. The I-shaped buildings consist of several rooms linked by a shallow wooden veranda. Unlike the traditional homes of southern Korea, there are no open-floored (maru) spaces because the climate is too severe. Grateful to Tian  in China for arranging to send this rare country card.

Post card from Germany.

A poignant card from yesteryear sent from Germany by Erhard.The Berlin Wall was a barrier that divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989. Constructed by the German Democratic Republic (GDR, East Germany), starting on 13 August 1961, the Wall completely cut off (by land) West Berlin from surrounding East Germany and from East Berlin until government officials opened it in November 1989. Its demolition officially began on 13 June 1990 and was completed in 1992.Both stamps on German Legislative bodies has perfect, matching and beautiful cancellation.
