The missing piece of List 2 (Local Culture Exchange)
« on: June 16, 2015, 12:16:14 PM »
Dear list 2 peeps,

so I made a card, meant to print it, color it by hand and calligraph "Austria" in the middle. Of course I waited until the last moment to actually print the card. Then my toner ran out. Then I got a new toner. Then I found out the problem wasn't the toner, it was the printer that just stopped working. Then, already too late, I went to the local copyshop, to realize I'd forgotten my purse with my money. Then I found out they can't print on cardstock there. So I just sent the letters with the rest of the stuff but I still wanted to show you what I would have included if not for a streak of bad luck. It's things Austria is famous for and I hope you would've liked it if I had sent it :P

Just imagine it hand-colored, the "Austria" calligraphed in our national colors red-white-red and printed on crown mill cardstock.

This is lovely! It's a shame about all that bad luck.

I must admit I did't know Conchita or Sissi.  Had to Google.  Arnie I figured out, if it is Arnold Schwarzenegger.  If it is a different Arnie, I am lost.

That is so amazing :)
Totally forgot about Eurovision and Choncita till I saw your drawing :)

8.5 Million is the total population?  The suburb of the city in which I live has 1.2 million :P

Now my entry looks so bland ;D

Yes, it is! 2,5 million of those live in the capital, Vienna ;D it is really a very small country. ;D Look here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austria#/media/File:EU-Austria.svg
But the standard of living is very high.

It's really cute, Natascha!! What a pity your printer died :(. I know how frustrating that is. My cards for the summer exchange last year ended up so badly printed because my printer didn't like my lined cardboard cards
