Good morning lovely peeps. It's Tuesday again and I'm heading for the T-Party held at Elizabeth and Bluebeard's. Please join us with anything drink related. Any beverage will do.N
This was me on Saturday. We are on a month-long road trip and are expected to do more than 5000km. We left on Sunday morning, so I was a bit frazzled on Saturday, trying to get everything ready.
Lets start with my postcards. The theme here is 1970s. Both cards are from that era. The first one is Tokyo in 1971. It is called Sentimental Journey by photographer Nobuyoshi Araki. (Collection of Tokyo Photographic Art Museum)
Here are the stamps. It's a shame that I can't read what it says on the stamp. I like to know what they
are all about.
This second card is from 1971 too, but it is from Portugal. It is an elderly spinster. No, not an unmarried woman but a woman who spins. In this case she is a spinner of Perre linen from Minho (in the north of Portugal)
And this is the stamp. It has delicious looking sweet rolls on it. They are called pastel de Tentúgal. (Tentúgal is a city near Coimbra) They are made of thin filo pastry and filled with a custard made with egg yolks. Very yummy!
As I am writing this, we are in France. We left Spain early on Monday morning and spent the
night in northern Spain near the Pyrenees mountains, in a place called Huesca. We found a hotel and went out for a drink and a tapa. (Enough for me by ways of supper. )
The tapas rolled by like they do in some sushi bars and you just take what you fancy.
Here I wanted to put the photo,but I don’t know how to do that. I am doing this on my iPad and the photos are taken with this device, so I have published them on Facebook and here is the link. Is anyone iPad savvy? Sorry about that.
I’ll post this before I do anymore damage and lose the lot.
Happy t-day all,
