US-589833 & CN-183545

After 1 week without any updates i'm back with some new cards. In the last few days i've received 9 official cards, these are from USA and China.

US-589833, sent by Josh.
Josh sent me my 1st card from Austin, Texas capital city. The card shows the Austin's Congress Avenue Bridge that crosses Lady Bird Lake in Austin.
The bridge was known as the Congress Avenue Bridge from the construction of the first span across the Colorado River at that location in the late 19th century until November 16, 2006, when the Austin City Council renamed the current bridge in honor of the late Ann W. Richards, the 45th Governor of Texas and Austin resident.
The bridge is currently home to the world's largest urban bat colony, with up to 1.5 million bats emerging nightly between mid-March and early November. The Mexican free tailed bats, which eat 10.000 to 30.000 pounds of insects during the course of their summer evening flights, draw more than 100.000 tourists annualy.

CN-183545, sent by Bo.
"The Yonghe Temple , also known as the "Palace of Peace and Harmony Lama Temple", the "Yonghe Lamasery", or - popularly - the "Lama Temple" is a temple and monastery of the Geluk School of Tibetan Buddhism located in the northeastern part of Beijing, China. It is one of the largest and most important Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in the world. The building and the artworks of the temple combine Han Chinese and Tibetan styles." - in: wikipedia
