Prague, Brest, Scheveningen, Mother Teresa, Auvergne and Paris

Well, I think the title of today's update covers just about everything. So I guess I don't really have to write very much. Maybe just about the stamps. Just kidding.The first card today is actually from Ukraine. If I had just left it at Prague, it would have been quite wrong. The card shows a number of bridges in Prague. The city from the view on the card, looks quite beautiful. Mindl, a Postcrosser from Czech Republic, but now living in Ukraine, says Prague has many historical buildings, tasty food, delicious beer, friendly people and beautiful girls. Maybe Mindl should be writing tourism brochures for Prague . The three stamps from Ukraine are all definitives from either 2008 or 2009.The next card, also from a Postcrosser shows the Brest, Belarus Fortress Defence Museum. Olga used 2 definitives from 2008 and 2006.Thanks to another Postcrosser , Geraldine, we have a card from Netherlands. It shows the Pier in Scheveningen. I can only think that it's a Sunday afternoon and the town's people are all out for a stroll along the Pier.
Finally , three cards , all compliments of Jean Pierre. The first one has a nice First Day of Issue , 27 May 2010, stamp of Mother Teresa.
The second card, shows La place de la Concorde, one of the major public squares in Paris. It encompasses 86,400 square metres. Jean Pierre used a 2010 commemorative of La Piscine.
On the last card we see 2 examples of the 2010 stamp showcasing Basilique d'Orcival. Thanks Jean Pierre for these cards.
Take care , see you soon.
