Castilla la Mancha is the region where almost all the story of the famous Spanish novel Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes is situated - due to which La Mancha is internationally well-known. Although La Mancha is a windswept battered plateau, it remains a symbol of the Spanish culture with its vineyards, sunflowers, mushrooms, olive yards, windmills, Manchego cheese, and Don Quixote.
Last Friday I received this cool postcard from Suriname:
In the picture you can see "Kotomisies" (Afro-Surinamese clothing) on the Flag's Square.
Curiosity about Suriname:
In the seventeenth century the country was colonized by English and Dutch. The last one acquire rights over the territory. Since 1975, after its independence, Dutch Guiana is called Suriname. The official language is still the Dutch, although the Taki-Taki, native language is widely spoken.
In the postcard you can see the Al-Tahrir Square in Baghdad and the Iraq's map with the most important cities and rivers (Euphrates and Tigris).
The stamp is celebrating the Asian Cup 2011 in Qatar.
In the last picture, some words written in Arabic.
Curiosity about Iraq:
Mesopotamia, which is now Iraq, was the cradle of civilization.
To start the week in the best way, I received this beautiful Happy Birthday Postcard from Finland and it was written precisely on my birthday 8th June:
Curiosity about Finland:
According to urban legend, in 1977 it was banned the sale of Donald Duck(Akku Ankka)'s comics because this cute duck was not wearing pants! The reality? The politicians decided it was OK to spend taxpayer money so that libraries had the complete collection of Donald Duck comics.
To end up the week I received this postcard from California:
Curiosity about USA:
California is the largest producer of wine of any state in the USA. Each year it produces many millions of litters of good quality table wines and an increasingly large volume of high quality vintage wines.
