In: from Morocco

More than two months time it took for them to arrive, but they did!
Totally intact, two postcards from Eva, cancelled the 11th of March, and delivered in my mailbox today, 21st of May!

The card above is from Volubilis, an ancient city, close to the present city of Meknes. The city expanded and became important in the Roman time, 2nd-3rd century, and these mosaic floors are remains of that era. See how modern (cartoonish even) the picture top left is!

The other postcard shows 'Lharira classique', classic harira soup from Fassia (Fez). On the back side there is the recipe. As a soup lover I really should have a try to make it at home one day :-)

The stamps have been issued in 2015, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 'Marche Verte', the 'Green March'.

Thank you very much, moltes gràcies, Eva!

2 opmerkingen:

  1. They took more than ten weeks, but I'm rally happy that these postcards arrived eventually. I didn't have any copy of them!

  2. And they arrived so well! To my experience, postcards who arrive with large delay, most of the time have tears or have been folded or both. But these two cards have traveled and arrived in excellent condition. Maybe they had some spa or other healthy interruption on their ways?! :-)

    Thank you again, Eva, glad to see that our patience, in this snailiest snailmail adventure, has been rewarded!
