Estonia and Oregon: same travel time

From Tartu, Estonia, postmarked July 19, 2011

I got some fun stamps on a couple of postcards today. I love the Estonian stamp on the right - what a sweet hug.

From Oregon USA, postmarked July 19, 2011

Of course I always love a good cat stamp, this time from the good old USA - this series is one of my favorites. I don't think I've seen the Colonial American Craftsmen stamp before, a great vintage one.

But here is the thing that jumped out to me as I read my mail and wrote these items down in my mail log (one of my beloved daily rituals, as I read my mail): check out the postmarks. Both are postmarked July 19. I was kind of fascinated to note that it takes the same time to travel from Estonia as it does from Oregon.
