The US is spoiled by their Post Office. You don't send anything private in Europe, and you don't send checks or cash through the mail anywhere on the Continent. They have a somewhat looser version of "sanctity" of mail compared to the US from what I have heard secondhand.

YMMV.

Bought a dozen antique postcards on Saturday, so am getting a kick


/ usually send them along with birthday cards so they don't get USPS stickers and cancellations all over them.

In my travels I've collected a pile of postcards, I can only write so many up and send them in the field. Usually they end up arriving at my nieces and nephews and girlfriends a week or so after I get back. It's still cool, even if the stamps are cancelled.
