PC #536: Postcrossing map – Russia

RU – 813751

Here’s a nice Postcrossing map from MAB92. And I can’t believe there’s only Eurasia on the card. I thought Eurasia is for those countries in between, those which could not identify if they’re in Asia or in Europe😄 Now, Eurasia, I’ve read, is actually a geographical, socio-political supercontinent, and that the concept of Europe and Asia as two distinct continents is arbitrary, since physiographically, it is just a single continent. Furthermore, Eurasia is connected to another large mass called the Afro-Eurasia. Yay, I learned something today.

Nice stamps used:
