Exchange is something that had been done since a long time. I think it is one basis of economy (if I understand correctly). And anyway, it's always nice to meet people especially in winter. They can do some small talk, learn about the other one culture and be satisfied by the exchange. Of course, it's have it's drawback too. But we always look back at the past in a romantised way and with a distance.

This card makes me think of my history classes. Maybe I have ancestors who did kind of trade.
