Sent by Heleen (the Netherlands).

This letter spent a lot of time to reach my mail box. It was not a surprise: mail works differently in Morocco, you know. But maybe there is an extra reason. The sender tell us in her blog: "(...) to my surprise the Dutch post first had watched on the (stamp-free!) back side of the envelope and delivered it initially... to me!.. I put it in the letterbox again, and hope it now is on its way to you!". For that reason she added the arrows, I suppose.

Finally it arrived with an amazing picture of La Vieille Lighthouse inside. It is not an unknown shore. I have seen this famous lighthouse in many pictures. And... I have also seen the real one (from the coast). It was during a trip in Brittany (France) in 2003. It was a very nice trip from lighthouse to lighthouse...

Heleen also added some Australian used stamps with different lighthouses: Cape Naturaliste, Troubridge Island and Wollongong Head.

And the artistamp is about a novel by the Spanish writer Carlos Ruiz Zafón.

NB I adore the fact that I can include five countries in the same post: the Netherlands, Morocco, France, Spain and Australia!


  1. You're a real World Citizen!

    And yes, indeed I added the arrows before my second attempt to send this mail to you :-)
    I am happy to read it finally has reached the right destination!

    1. I told you this in a postcard. I sent it last Monday, so you haven't received it yet...

  2. I did, I did! This morning - when I wrote my comment - I didn't know it yet, but in the afternoon I found your great postcard in my mailbox!
    Thank you very much, I love it!
    (I'll reply you in both email (a short one, I think!?) and snail mail :-)


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
