Postcard from Russia!

Today I got a nice postcard from Russia! The postcard shows a view of the Middle Ural Mountains with the Chusovaya River. The Chusovaya River is a tributary of the Kama River. Interestingly, it originates from the eastern slopes of the Ural Mountains in Asia and runs through them onto their western slopes in Europe. It is popular for the large rock formations along its shoreline. Nice tank stamps were used! Unfortunately, the card was damaged and exposed to water while it was travelling and was therefore delivered in a plastic bag from the Philippine Post. Thanks Tatiana!
