Private trades

2 cards i've received a few days ago related to private trades.
I'm getting worried about these trades because most of my sent card haven't arrived yet, i hope they don't get lost.

This is a card from Leipzig sent by Detlef with a coffee house from 1556.
"Leipzig is the largest city in the federal state of Saxony, Germany.
The Leipzig region was the arena of the Battle of the Nations, which ended Napoleon's run of conquest in Europe, and led to his first exile on Elba.
Johann Sebastian Bach worked in Leipzig from 1723 to 1750 and Richard Wagner the composer was born in Leipzig in 1813. Robert Schumann was also active in Leipzig music." - in:

This one arrived from Hong Kong and it was sent by Sally "atori" and it shows the Victoria Harbour seen from Lugard Road the Peak .
"Victoria Harbour is a natural landform harbour situated between Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula in Hong Kong. The harbour's deep, sheltered waters and strategic location on the South China Sea was instrumental in Hong Kong's establishment as a British colony and its subsequent development as a trading centre. Throughout its history, the harbour has seen numerous reclamation projects undertaken on both shores, but still retains its founding role as a port for thousands of international vessels each year.
Long famous for its spectacular views, the harbour is a major tourist attraction of Hong Kong. Lying in the middle of the territory's dense urban region, the harbour is the site of annual fireworks displays and its promenades are popular gathering places for tourists and residents." - in:
