Netherlands - Nieuwerkerk aan de IJssel (NL-89073)

This postcard is my 2nd official from the Netherlands :) Yes, I've received only 2 offical cards from the Netherlands so far. What I like about postcrossing is that you never know, where will your postcards come from. Of course, if you join postcrossing - you'll receive many cards from Finland, Germany and USA. But other countries are always a surprise :) For example, I haven't received any card from Portugal, which is a Top5 country, but I already have some officials from quite 'rare' countries, such as Romania or Thailand.
But, let's come back to the Netherlands :)

HämeeNieuwerkerk aan den IJssel (population: 22,344 in 2004) is a town and municipality in the western Netherlands, in the province of South Holland.

It is situated along the Hollandse IJssel river, across from the town Ouderkerk.

Within the boundaries of this municipality lies the lowest point of the Netherlands: 6.76 m (22.2 ft) below Amsterdam Ordnance Datum (mean summer sea level in Amsterdam).
