Just Two Cards

Good Day to you all. I have just two cards to showcase today. One is from Spain and the other is from Thailand.
The card from Spain highlights the Plaza de Espana in Seville. The plaza was built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. Measuring 50,000 square metres, the plaza is the size of five football pitches. The location has been used in a couple of movies, such as Star Wars and Lawrence of Arabia.

Johan used 2 stamps on his card. On the left is a 2016 stamp celebrating the Spanish city of Jerez, the World Capital of Motorcycling. On the right is a large definitive from 2016 featuring the current King.

I don't normally mention anything written on the reverse of the cards I receive, but this time just a little. Johan wrote that he was melting , it was so hot. I checked the temperature in Seville for today - 42 C. Still hot . Unbearable !

The Royal Grand Palace in Bangkok is the cover subject of this next card. It was built in 1782 and is the city's most famous landmark.

Jobbo again used 3 great stamps on his card. On the left is a stamp from 1997, 1 of 4 in a Communication set. In the middle is 1 of 4 stamps issued to celebrate Thaipex 97, the Thailand Philatelic Exhibition. On the right is 1 of 5 stamps issued for National Children's  Day 2017.

Well that's it for this time. Hope you enjoyed the cards and stamps , compliments of Johan and Jobbo. Drop by again when you can.
