Hello, everyone! Today's Postcard Thursday is about one of the beloved postcards that I brought from Canada.
I found this card very funny because, indeed, I spent one month in Canada and haven't seen any of those things. I can't complain at all, but I surely wish I had seen at least a moose. Come on, I have never seen a moose!
Besides the joke, this postcard makes me think. It makes me remember of all the stereotypes I heard about Canada right before my trip, and the stereotypes about Brazil that I always hear. These things actually bother me a lot, to know that some people think they actually know something about a country they'd never been to, and they think they can judge this country and their people. Of course most time it's harmless stereotypes, but still it's kind of awkward when it's your country people are talking about.
I think people should be open to learn about other countries. So, I'm here to ask you, reader, something: is there something interesting or some fun fact that people don't usually know (and don't even imagine) about your country? Please, share it with me! I'm eager to learn. :)
