Illinois woman gets postcard from Hong Kong – mailed in '93

SPRINGFIELD (AP) – An Illinois woman checked her mail and learned about a man’s travels in Hong Kong. But Kim Draper doesn’t know the man – and the postcard is 26 years old.

Draper, who lives in Springfield, says the postcard from 1993 appears to have been written by a father to his children. She tells The State Journal-Register that she’s been searching online for Leena Kizilbash, who could be living in Massachusetts.

The man who wrote the postcard says he was “having a good time” in an “extremely crowded place.” He says some seafood is served while “still crawling on your plate.”

Draper says the postcard is in great condition, despite being nearly 3 decades old. She believes the family probably was renting her house in the 1990s.
