In: from Spain and Morocco

Three cards arrived the same day - 19th of January - while there have been many days to post between them!
Thank you, Eva, for sending and for your kind messages!

This Smurf traveled the longest distance, but also the shortest time according to the postmark (14th of January), and in an envelope (maybe that helps?):

He might have been floating on this peaceful lake:

Sent from Spain the 29th of December 2015, so traveling 3 weeks, was this postcard of Little Red Riding Hood (and 'lo que no vío' - what she didn't see), an illustration by Mar Ferrero:

With on the back side this Europe toys stamp:

Last but not least, the postcard which has been traveling the shortest distance and the longest time (a month: written the 20th of December) was this postcard from Madrid, showing the Palacio de Cibeles, the former Palace of Telecommunication, in which nowadays a cultural center and the main post office is located.

Which a matching stamp:

Thank you very much, Eva! Moltes gràcies!

  1. I hadn't seen the Moroccan stamp yet. I handed the letter to the post office worker, and she put the stamps. Does that envelope arrived with one stamp only? Because N-20g is for letters within Morocco, up to 20g. And, of course, I paid for an international letter! :)

    And thanks for the links of Little Red Riding Hood (and what she didn't see). I bought the postcard in the illustrators market, but I haven't read the book (yet?).

  2. No worries, there were three stamps on it. But the other two were sticked in another direction (the correct way, while this lake was oblique) and are wellknown already. I didn't dare to post the three of them together because the 2 wellknown ones then would have been published oblique, which might have offended some people if you know what I mean :-)

  3. That is one very happy looking little Smurf!
