Contact with a penguin lover

Got a postcard from Katja in Australia today. It really made my entire day! ;)

Postcards are a fascinating concept to me. I could think of the distance it's traveled all day trying to understand it. Anyone can read the back, maybe some have. What would they think of the message? Would they wonder who we were? Would they understand the significance of showing a friend/family/lover you've thought of them when surrounded by strange and exciting new things? How many people have touched it on its journey of thousands of miles? It's just a note jotted on the back of a square of cardstock, but it means more than just the message to the recipient.
