Unfortunately the awesomeness of this card doesn't come across in a photo... I LOVE metro maps. This one is of Berlin. It actually looks kind of similar to Tokyo, but not as complex.
Stamps. Right we have a nice commemorative stamp celebrating 175 years of railroads in Germany. The image shows the first run of the steam engine "Adler" ("eagle") in 1835. This stamp was issued in November 2010 and is still available. I wasn't able to find the one on the left on the Deutsch Post website, but it appears to be a flower definitive. The flower is an oxeye daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare).
