A Card from Pierluigi plus another new country
I have two cards to showoff today. The first card, sent by Pierluigi of Covers&Stamp blog fame, shows a couple of buildings in Corato, which is 52 km from Bari, in the Puglia region, of Southeastern Italy. The postmark from Bari has a special Chtistmas 2007 motif. Pierluigi used the Made in Italy , Lamborghini 2007 stamp.
The 2nd postcard is from Belize, another new country for me, #169. The face of the postcard shows a flotilla of sailboats moored below the Swing Bridge on Haulover Creek in Belize City. The card was sent from The Canadian Consulate in Belize City, and bears a hand stamp to that effect, in addition to the postmark. The stamp used is the 30c value from a set of 6, issued in 2007 honouring Belizean artists. This stamp shows a painting by Louis Belisle entitled Market Scene.
