This card shows the National Holy Heart Basilica in Brussels,Belgium. According to the sender, the basilica is the largest of it's kind in the world. It's built in an Art Deco Style.
This card is extra ordinary, because of it's shape. Its longer than normal cards. However the card it self is really beautiful. It shows the romantic city of Venice of Venezia in Italian.
The card was canceled in Padova on 5.05.08. There is also cancellation mark, with the writing Mal Ensamindo A El Salvador C.A. Does anyone know what that means? Thanks Eleue for sending this card!!
This wonderful card is one of my personal favorites as well. The statue of Christ the Redeemer over looking the city of Rio and the Sugar loaf mountain, a cracking view indeed!
Nice stamps used as well and both stamps are canceled quite well! It reads Rio De Janeiro-9 Mai 2008!Thanks Jorge Baotes Fuhrmann
Allianz Arena is the home of German Champions Bayern Munich and their cross town rivals 1860 Munich.
A really interesting card, mainly because of the error that occurred during the cancellation of this card! If you look at the stamp it is uncanceled ,but when you look at the front part of the card you notice a cancellation mark! Errors like this don't usual happen. I guess the card was not the right way up when the machine was supposed cancel the stamps! Cool!!
Thank you Kel for sending this card ...oh and thanks to the Portuguese postal service for making the mistake!lol!!
