Good Morning! Good Monday!
Here in Spain it's a Bank Holiday, i.e. a day off. The official festival day was yesterday, the 1st of November (All Saints day) when everybody goes to the cemetery to pay respects to loved ones who have past away. Graves get spruced up, there are flowers everywhere, and the cemetery is the busiest it's been all year. This year the 1st of November fell on a Sunday, so the Spanish have their day off on Monday!
As I am in Spanish mode I want to show you a Spanish map card today. Postcrossing members often ask for map cards, so I do my best to find them. A few weeks ago I went to a Christian Women's Conference on the coast which involved travelling by bus. When I was at the Granada bus station I found a stall that sold postcards and lo and behold they sold map cards! Hurray! I immediately bought five!
This is the region I live in. I live on the far right of the green bit. I have marked it with a little black asterix. The yellow dotted areas are national parks and as you can see we live just outside a national park. It is a beautiful area. Here is another postcard:
I know it's very dry and these are what they call 'badlands' where nothing grows, but I find it stunningly beautiful!
Finally I'd like to show you a new sheet of postage stamps that I bought at the post office this week:
They are about rural architecture, and to be used for mail inside Europe.
That's me done for today.
See you again tomorrow when I link up with T for Tuesday.
