Postcard from Gibraltar
I received this great postcard sometime at the turn of the year (when I was not at home for a week). It shows the main sights of Gibraltar and features the 44p Christmas stamp from the 1988 emission, a painting by G. Key, age 8. The card is postmarked (which is not so normal for common mail sent from the Rock, as Mónica, the sender, claims). It was sent on 6 December 2008, and thus took quite a long time to get here, but the postmark is not legible to the point of identifying the date.
