A portugal Card

I have just a short update today, showing just a single card. The card is from Portugal and was sent by Postcrosser Jose. The postcard shows an old tramway in Lisbon. Tran #28 , which is the one shown, is probably Lisbon's greatest ride as it runs through the narrowest and steepest streets at the Alfama district. The tram itself has become a huge tourist attraction and riding in it is now a must way to see the oldest parts of the city. I regret not having taken a ride on it when I visited Lisbon way back in 1978.

The stamp used on the card was issued in 2006 for the Pico wine industry and is 1 of a set of 4, from the Azores.
