Olá amigos!

I received this beauty of a postcard from Beatriz in Portugal via official postcrossing! Awesome card, huh?

Lisbon is the capital and the largest city of Portugal, with a population of 552,700. It is continental Europe’s westernmost capital city and the only one along the Atlantic coast. Lisbon lies in the western Iberian Peninsula on the Atlantic Ocean and the River Tagus. The westernmost areas of its metro area is the westernmost point of Continental Europe.

Did you know?
Lisbon is even older than Rome! And according to most estimates, around 4 centuries older. It is in fact the second oldest European capital after Athens, many historians believing that it was settled by the Phoenicians around 1200 B.C., and who used the excellent transport possibilities offered by the River Tagus. One of the theories for the origin of the name Lisbon is that it came from the term “Allis Ubbo” or “safe harbour” in Phoenician.

Apparently Krishna is happy that my Nepali is so fluent haha, although I would not quite say that it is ^^

These Buddha eyes you can see on the card are on one of the most beautiful buddhist temples in Kathmandu. Swayambunath

Hola amigos!

My second card from Chile comes from Sandy! Thank you very much I like this card a lot!

I have been in Chile 2009 (wow really a long time ago) I just started to learn spanish and everything was really new and overwhelming. I remember that this was my first long distance flight… Oh sweet memories 😀

I have also been to Santiago and I remember it as a very lovely city. I always like it when you see a mountain range so close. In this case – they are the Andes.

I send love!
