I received this postcard from Florida! Many of you might be familiar with the city shown here – Orlando, largely known for being the home of the Walt Disney World Resort! I can tell you that my only time in Florida was to visit Disney World with my dear family back in… was it 2005 or something? I think I was going into 8th grade following that summer. Gosh I’m due for another family outing there, whenever that can happen again! Because of places like Disney World and the Universal Studios Resort, Orlando is one of the most visited cities in the world. It’s located kind of in the center of the state, maybe offset to the east a little. Orlando bears the nickname the “City Beautiful”, which dates back to the early 1900s. And boy what a fitting name that is! This view here is of Lake Eola and Lake Eola Park, found in Downtown Orlando. Over on the right side you see that really cool-lookin’ fountain; that’s the Linton E. Allen Memorial Fountain, named after the man who founded the First National Bank in Orlando and had quite the affinity for the fountains of Europe (which was the inspiration to bring about one in the city). Over on the left side, I’d like to point out the Amphitheater, a.k.a. the Band Shell, where concerts and plays are held. It is white on this card (as this card was printed in 2013 or earlier), but is now colored like a rainbow to honor the victims of a 2016 shooting that took place at a gay nightclub in the city. I’d hate to end off on such a morbid note, so I’m gonna throw in a random fun fact about Disney World. One of the attractions – Main Street U.S.A. – is a place filled with American flags… or is it? If you look closely, you’ll actually see that all but one of the flags are missing a star or a stripe. The reason? American flags have to follow certain regulations, such as being lowered, flown at half-mast when mandated, and illuminated at night. Since these aren’t real American flags, though, they don’t have to follow those rules! Very tiny intricacy… you slick Disney Worldians… and to the sender, thank you lots for sending me this cool postcard!
