With screams of joy I received my first postcard of a microstate from Michaela who lives in Liechtenstein. I still cannot believe how lucky I was to receive this postcard! Liechtenstein is rather tiny, in fact it is only one tenth the size of the city that I live in, at 160 square kilometers. It also has about a hundredth of the population of the city where I live, with a population of 36 000 people. The head of state of Liechtenstein is Prince Hans-Adam II and Michaela tells me that this powerful man is quite kind and friendly. What a wonderful postcard to have in my collection!
