In: from Spain
I think it is clear that I love post offices!
Alas in the Netherlands the 'real' post offices have disappeared, the former post office buildings have gotten new. non-postal destinations and postal things nowadays happen in post agencies in regular shops.
To be short, I was pleasantly surprised that in other places in Europe post offices still exist and still are used the way post offices should be used. For instance this beautiful post office in València, the Corrue at the Plaça de l'Ajuntament.
Thank you very much Eva, I am happy to add this postcard to my 'post offices' collection!
By the way, this postage stamp is new to me. I was surprised by the pink crowns. Usually I don't like pink nor crowns that much, but this combination I think cool :).
And do you notice the postal addition? We used to draw moustaches and glasses on our former queens' stamps (really, we did in our teens and it's not forbidden in our country!). So I love the way Correos cancelled this stamp: it looks as they added glasses, or at least a monocle, before the king's eye!?!
