How's this place work?

If you could take a little mental holiday and go to any imaginary place, where would you go?
And what would you do while you were there?

Send me a postcard, handmade or otherwise, from an imaginary location. It can be a place from a book or a movie or a piece of music, or some other world you made up. On the other side, write and tell me what you've been doing on your vacation from reality.

All postcards to be addressed to:

Wish I Were Here
6219 156th Ave. NE
Redmond, WA 98052
United States

I'll scan a selection of postcards and post them to the blog for all and sundry to enjoy.

Postcard the sixty-first: Luna Park

Some of you might know that, once upon a time, there was an amusement park called Luna Park in Seattle.

This... is not it. But it is pretty darned impressive all the same.

"Dear Soozcat,
If you ever have the money to travel anywhere, go to the moon! It is close and right by earth! The carousel is a plus! Of course you have to provide yourself with astronaut gear. The carousel is, of course, strapped to moon so it doesn't go flying off. So no worries on riding it!"

I have to say it looks like a lot of fun. Saving my pennies now! Those astronauts may have stepped on the moon first, but they didn't get to ride the carousel, did they? Take that, Buzz Aldrin!

Thanks for writing, Michelle! (And any ideas about where I could find a discount spacesuit?)
