Hello lovely ladies,
Another week has passed ever so quickly!
So without delay I will show you my postcards.
The first one comes from Belgium. It shows a painting by Camille Corot (1796-1875). The work is called A Girl Reading (1845).
The stamp is amazing! What is Belgium famous for? Of course, it is chocolate! They couldn't have chosen a better stamp!
My mouth is watering as we are on a detox sort of diet and I really fancy chocolate....The second card comes from Malaysia.
Genting Highlands is a high-altitude hill resort in Malaysia, situated in the Titiwangsa Mountains northeast of Kuala Lumpur. Developed since the 1960s, the site comprises hotels, a shopping mall, restaurants and the Casino de Genting. Its Chin Swee Caves Temple sits on forested acreage with mountain views. Genting Skyway, a cable car, connects the resort with the plateau town Gohtong Jaya.
Here are two images from the Internet:
The stamp is beautiful. It has a lovely yellow hibiscus on it. Wilayah Persekutuan means 'Federal Territories'.
The federal territories in Malaysia comprise three territories: Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan, governed directly by the federal government of Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur is the national capital of Malaysia, Putrajaya is the administrative capital, and Labuan is an offshore international financial centre. Wikipedia
So, what is happening here in sunny Spain? Well, it's not so sunny at the mo. It started snowing last night and this morning we woke up to this: (It is our back door)
We went for a walk and saw much devastation. You guys in Minnesota and in Canada are used to this sort of thing but here it's more unusual.
We went for a walk to the little park behind our house. A tree branch had broken off:
A bit further down in the village, a whole tree had fallen and was blocking the entrance to the village: (My friend Jose Ramon Samaniego made the following two photos):
When we got down ourselves, they had cut most of it already.
This was our terrace this morning (Monday):
And some fun selfies during our walk. Had to get the palm trees in for our host Elizabeth.
It was still snowing lightly, that's why we are well wrapped up. It isn't really cold.
As today is T for Tuesday, I need a qualifier. I know that any drink or drink reference is allowed. Let me take you back to our recent trip.
When we flew back into Spain, we arrived at Alicante airport. We got a hotel just outside Alicante, near the airport in Elche. That evening we went out for dinner and we decided to go oriental. Here is hubby with a glass of red wine and his spring roll. I had sushi.
One of my sushi thingies:
The interior of the restaurant. It was very quiet being Monday night.
A few more sushi. It was more than I could eat really, but I managed it!
