Artist in seine #2 also arrived, this wrapped in paper bag?

The postal clerk "assumed" that the paper bag being from France,

must be wrapped with the other item from France...and rubber-band fastened, too.

However, while one might expect a paper bag from In Seine, it was indeed from TiAr (blog coming)

Artist in Seine sent scents of Paris on his mail art card:

But with postage from......Sri Lanka! Wow!

That's a first for me! Special joy to follow In Seine as he travels around the world!

Nice bar codes, and a regal Lion, too, on the flip side!

All the best A-i-S! Happy travels to you...

xxx and many thanks for all you send.

A train spotter at heart.  So it looks like a date to set in Hamburg!

Hamburg has the largest model railroad in the world? Wow! My brother is a train fanatic and he had as a child at Christmas his Lionel train set...all decorated under the tree. Then in his teenage years, he started collecting and building with small "0" gauge model trains. Guess who always painted and constructed all the village houses, and station details ? He grew up and became a Chicago "L" driver and then electrical engineer for the Blue Line in L.A. Retired...he still is a train fanatic!

Me love trains of all kinds, too...and Edmund Hippo at the Thess. train station:

Are you joking, the world famous largest train set in the world is in Hamburg.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqAV-2cVDrw

But don't confuse this with the Banana Musee in Germany.

And just to think that we all have a Erni piece ready to sell to the highest bidder.  It will be a sad day when that comes, but then again I could use the money to visit that big train set in Hamburg.

2014 Thessaloniki is Youth Capital of Europe...

so they are dressing the part? hahaha!

Comment by Dean aka Artist in Seine on February 21, 2014 at 11:07am

Thanks Erni, but I really don't think my mail art would interest collectors.  Ha Ha

Yes Kate, we should all move there and set up Banana HQ.

Wow! Mail artists' heaven..0.14 euro per card! 

HELLas Post has raised it from 0.78 to 0.90!

But they did finally print our new 90 cent stamps..."Mohawk" :-)

Yes, all the way up there, and I forgot to mention the international postage of 25 Sri Lankan rupees.  (Equals 0.14 centimes of a Euro, $0.19 USD)  You would have to be a pretty motivated postman for this job.  Luckily I sent 5 or 6 from there so it would have been worth his while.  We'll see if the others show up.

Wow! so it really was mailed from high-up there, at Adam's Peak!

Very unique mail art, thank you, In Seine:-)
