A Postcard From France
I just have one postcard to show today. It was send by Postcrosser Maud from France. Actually the card is from Rambouillet. Rambouillet is located in the metropolitan area of paris. It is 44 km Southwest from the center of Paris. Rambouillet is famous for the vast forest of the same name , as well as for the Chateau de Rambouillet, which is pictured on the card. The Chateau has hosted several international summits. Due to its proximity to Paris and Versailles, Rambouillet has long been an occasional seat of government and summer residence of the Presidents of France.
Maud used a 2007 stamp, 1 of a set of 4, featuring protected animals.
