PC #227: Lisboa, Portugal

It was very nice of Manuel (manelmor) to send me a return/thank you card. Take note, he ranks 1st on most postcards sent from Portugal, and 1st on longest distance sent from Portugal! My, I’m so happy to have received a card from him. 🙂

Not only that, he satisfied my request for a multiview card of capital cities. It was just too bad that the post office put the stamp, which obviously smudged, in front of the card. Ach! But anyways, on the card are the following views of Lisbon: a shot taken from the River Tagus, the Edward VII park, and the April 25 Bridge. (The Bridge is a copy of the Golden Gate Bridge in the US, wrote Manuel).

Lisbon, Portugal

Manuel used one of the nicest stamp I’ve ever seen. Oh, it was issued just last month, an FDC of the UPAEP (Postal Union of the Americas, Spain and Portugal) based in Uruguay and founded in 1911 as a restricted union of the Universal Postal Union. It includes the following countries: Netherlands Antilles, Argentina, Aruba, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Spain, USA, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Dominican Republic, Surinam, Uruguay, Venezuela. Maraming salamat, muito obrigada, Manuel! 🙂

Really nice penmanship. 🙂
