Lottery cards

A few days ago Rita "rita_simões" hosted a lottery on the portuguese community and what we had to do was guess the name of the city on a card. The correct answer was Stockholm and i was the winner. Zé "zepombal" also hosted a lottery and this time we had to guess his age :) this was pretty easy because he said he was born in 1949 :P Off course we all guessed it right and he sent cards to everybody!!

The city was really Stockholm and Rita sent this nice black & white card.
"Stockholm is the capital and largest city of Sweden. It is the site of the national Swedish government, the parliament, and the official residence of the Swedish Monarch. Stockholm has been the cutural, media, political, and economic centre of Sweden since the 13th century. Its strategic location on 14 islands on the south-central east coast of Sweden at the mouth of Lake Mälaren, by the Stockholm archipelago, has been historically important. Stockholm is known for its beauty, its historical buildings and architecture, its rivers and many parks, and its large shopping districts. Stockholm is one of the most visited cities in the Nordic Countries, with over 1 million visitors every year." - in: wikipedia

A card from pombal, Zé's hometown, with the Cardal church, a barroc temple from the 18th century.
By the way, these stamps are just great.
