My postcrossing mood has been a bit down! I've been getting just a few cards, only 2 or 3 times a week, (I used to get cards everyday and lots of them) and my send cards keep travelling for several weeks. The normal average time travel for Central Europe used to be 3 or 4 days and now it takes almost 2 months!! Really!!! I really don't undersant what is happening in the mail word but it is certainly ruining my joy about getting and sending cards :(

The mausoleum of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, who is considered the Father of the Republic of China and the forerunner of the Chinese Revolution, is located at the southern foot of Purple Mountain in Nanjing, bordering Ming Xiaoling Mausoleum to the west and Linggu Temple to the east. The construction of this mausoleum began in January 1926 and was completed in the spring of 1929. In 1961, Dr. Sun Yat-sen’s Mausoleum was included on the list of National key Cultural Relics Protection Units. 
Dr. Sun Yat-sen’s Mausoleum covers an area of 80,000 square meters.  The main buildings were built on one central axis, along which the mausoleum rises gradually and squarely: marble dolmen, the pavilion, sacrificial hall and coffin chamber will come into view one by one, and perfectly demonstrate traditional Chinese architectural styles. Dr. Sun Yat-sen’s Mausoleum faces south. Looking down from the air, it seems to resemble an alarm bell. 
Besides these, many other memorial buildings around the mausoleum were also built in memory of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, and have great artistic merit. - in:'s-Mausoleum_591.html
