November RR - II

So far this RR has 40 participants, that means i'll send and received 39 cards and i've already received 11 cards.
This is my 3rd card from Ireland and my 1st from Dublin. it was sent by Brian "fisherman".
On the back of the card - "Dublin is a city steeped in history, tragic and glorious, with haunting memories of great patriots, statesmen, writers, scientists and scholars. The city is particularly rich in architecture of the 18th century with fine Georgian buildings, broad street and spacious squares."

From Spain arrived this card with the Batlló House in Barcelona, sent by Jordi. The house is one of Antoni Gaudí's works and it was built in 1877.

Another card from the Netherlands but from a different province, Fryslân. "Fryslân is a province in the north of the Netherlands.

Up until the end of 1996, the province bore Friesland as its official name. In 1997 this Dutch name lost its official status to the Frisian Fryslân. Nevertheless 'Friesland' is still commonly used, being the Dutch translation of the official name.

Friesland has 643,000 inhabitants (2005) and its capital is Leeuwarden (Ljouwert), with 91,817 inhabitants, in the center of the province." - in: wikipedia

The Danshuei Fishermen's Wharf in Taiwan.
The card was sent by "sadyyy".

"Bodrum is a Turkish port town in Muğla Province, in the southwestern Aegean Region of the country. It is located on the southern coast of Bodrum Peninsula, at a point that checks the entry into the Gulf of Gökova, and it faces the Greek island of Kos. Today, it is an international center of tourism and yachting. The city was called Halicarnassus of Caria in ancient times. The Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, was here.

Bodrum Castle, built by the Crusaders in the 15th century, overlooks the harbor and the International Marina. The castle grounds includes a Museum of Underwater Archeology and hosts several cultural festivals throughout the year." - in: wikipedia
