I've always been interested in different alphabets and other ways people note things down, especially how they used to do it in the past. Helga sent me a postcard with the letters of the Ukrainian alphabet, or "Ukrayins’ka abetka" how they call it. The Ukrainian alphabet is one of the national variations of the Cyrillic script, used to write Ukrainian. It comprises thirty-three letters, representing thirty-eight phonemes, and an additional sign — the apostrophe. Ukrainian texts are, however, sometimes written in Latin alphabet.
Helga used brand-new UNICEF stamps that depict the works of Yuliya Zadorozhnaya and Eugene Belobraghin - contestants of the Ukrainian children and youth creativity contest “Equal opportunities – through the eyes of children” organized by the UNICEF fund in the year 2007. Wonderful!
