Last month the MFS RR cards came from USA, Netherlands, Finland and Germany.
Lianna sent me my 1st Jehovah's Witnesses temple card. This is the Assembly Hall in Salisbury, North Carolina.
From the Netherlands, Carolien sent a card from her birth town. Oirschot is a town in the southern Netherlands. Some of the town's monuments are the gothic Sint-Petrus Church, built in the 15th- and 16th-centuries. It is is the biggest building in the town of Oirschot and the tower of the church is 73 meters high. The old town hall build in 1513 in the centre of town and the windmill. I can't identify the other two buildings.

Olavinlinna Castle is one of the best-known sights in Finland.
Olavinlinna Castle was founded in 1475 by Swedish nobleman Erik Axelsson Tott. Situated on a small island in Lake Saimaa it was one of the most modern fortresses of its time, consisting of a citadel, a bailey and five round cannon towers.
During the Great Nordic War (1700 – 1721) Russia conquered parts of southern Finland and in the Russo-Swedish War 1741 – 1743 Sweden tried to win back lost territories. Olavinlinna was captured by the Russians in 1742, and when peace was settled it became one in a line of Russian border fortresses and an army base, modernized under the surveillance of the famous Russian Generalissimo Alexander Suvorov.
After the Finnish War of 1808 – 1809 Finland became an autonomous part of Russia. The castle lost its strategic function and became a tourist attraction. - in: https://www.visitcastles.eu
The Römer is a medieval building in the Altstadt of Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and one of the city's most important landmarks. The Römer is located opposite the Old St. Nicholas church and has been the city hall (Rathaus) of Frankfurt for over 600 years. The Römer merchant family sold it together with a second building, the Goldener Schwan (Golden Swan), to the city council on March 11, 1405 and it was converted for use as the city hall. The Haus Römer is actually the middle building of a set of three located in the Römerberg plaza.
The Römer is not a museum as it is occasionally used by the city for various purposes, for example as a Standesamt or civil registration office; the wedding rooms are located in the first and second floor of the Haus Löwenstein. - in: wikipedia
