This card was sent from Italy by a girl who lived 6 months in Portugal and came a few times to my home town, she said in the card :) The card shows the postal savings bank, in vienna, designed by Otto Wagner, an important Austro-Hungarian architect and urban planner. The picture was taken by Marc Loiseau.

The stamp shows a detail of "la vittoria olimpica" by Emilio Greco.

Banaue Rice Terraces

The Banaue Rice Terraces are 2,000-year-old terraces that were carved into the mountains of Ifugao in the Philippines by ancestors of the indigenous people. It reminds me the Douro landscape with the  hand carved terraces full of vineyards!

The stamp with Pope Francis is very nice!

This Statue of Liberty came from India, and despite the lack of connection between the sender and the card I enjoyed it because it is a great monument
