Jurgen O. Olbrich - Germany

Many thanks to Jurgen for these two wonderful postcards. The first is made with actual bacon packaging. The second is quite intimate and personal in an almost eerie way.

I found it interesting that for the listed ingredients on the package of bacon the main ingredient is 'swine flesh'. I guess in Germany they have no need for euphemisms such as our American term 'pork'. I like that. It's much more direct, and honest.
