Bridges - Portugal 2008


Aren't bridges the best thing in the world?

You don't think so?

What about that bridge that makes it possible to go from Porto to Gaia? Or the bridge that connects a mother to their children?

Or even the "The Bridges Of Madison County"... do you remember this amazing film with Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood? I know that you're a romantic so you will surely remember it, right?

No? Hmmm... then watch the clip bellow and go run to your video store and rent the DVD!!! Yes, go now!!!

.... Let's get back to the stamps.... Today I want to show you a set of stamps issued yesterday by the Portuguese Postal Authority about bridges... These are some really nice stamps... what can I say... I like bridges on stamps and also beneath my car wheels...

Hope you have enjoyed these stamps as much as I did!

"The history of the Portuguese civilisation is closely bound with the history of wine-growing."

"In 1907/1908, the government introduced a system of official regulations for the various “designations of origin”, which established the principles protecting and governing wine production and trade, “demarcating” or delimiting the geographic areas of the various designations, in particular for the Generoso or fortified wines of the Douro region, Madeira, Carcavelos and Setúbal and the Pasto or table wines of the Vinho Verde (Green Wine), Dão, Douro and Colares regions. Two years later, the Bucelas region was also demarcated."

Very beautiful set of stamps, don't you think?

See you soon... for me it's time for some real wine tasting from my cellar :) Take care!
