Postcard from Denmark





Today (21 November 2008) I received another mail from Denmark, this time a postcard showing a sunset over the harbour of the city of Aalborg in the north of the country. Aalborg is the fourth largest Danish city with a population of about 120,000. The postmark is not legible, so I cannot say how long this card travelled to me.

And I find here another great stamp! It was issued on 29 March 2006 as one of the two Danish stamps in the Norden series of Nordic Mythology 2. It features a nice set of mythic beasts: two mares (at the top), a ghost horse in the middle, a goblin and a troll next to it, and two werewolves at the bottom. The stamp looks a bit crazy in its colouring, but is charming in its own way. Thank you N.!
