Postcard from Záhlinice, Czech Republic
A postcard which I sent to myself on 4 May 2010 when visiting the neighbouring town of Hulín, to have our car repaired. At the local post-office I found this card of the village Záhlinice, which is part of Hulín. Záhlinice has some 370 inhabitants, a huge defunct brewery (closed in 1925) and a malting plant which is still in operation. There are also some large ponds between the village and my town.
The stamp used and hand-cancelled at the counter, the only 10 Kč commemorative available at the moment at the post-office, was issued on 24 March 2010, and is a reminder of the Vancouver Olympic Games and the gold medals won there, courtesy of speed-skater Martina Sáblíková.
