50 Cities of the World #34 Alexandria
Welcome to Alexandria, one of those mythical cities. Well... at least if you dream of great libraries full of books and lighthouses.
You can see back there, between the "34" and "Alexandria" the famous Lighthouse. Was expecting it to be front row but the card looks nice this way too. You can picture people on the street and those typical buildings.
As said in the card back, Alexandria was the centre of the intellectual life back then and because of its location in the Nile delta part of Egypt it was also the location to be if you wanted to feel you were in Venice from time-to-time.
Alexandria is one of those cities so full of history and stories that an entire set could be dedicated to it, with cards for every thing that surrounds the city aura.
