Port of Barcelona, Spain.
Around 1994 I stayed in Barcelona for 6 weeks, I had a fantastic time so this postcard brings back sweet memories..... and funny memories.... let me share one with you, why not... While staying in Barcelona I was studying Spanish at a languageschool called Don Quijote. The languageschool also arranged an appartment for me where I was staying with 3 other students. One night, I was just there for 1 or 2 days, we (students and teachers) went into town at night to visit some clubs, we danced and had a great time. But at a certain point when we wanted to go home I couldn't remember my address, hahaha, so stupid of me! Luckily the teachers where there.... one of them went back with me to the languageschool and he searched in the school-administration to get my address.... I felt like such a fool! Ofcourse I found my way back home after this rescue (and with the help of the cabdriver... ;-))
Some things you never forget, I wonder of this teacher still remembers....

Thanks Sam for this moment! :-)
And another beauty from Germany, sent by Jana. It shows an attraction in Hannover, the old fairground of the EXPO2000. Many pavillions are still there, some of them are frequently used (for example for concerts or exhibitions) but some others are ruins.Thanks Jana! :-)

From Lisa in Pittsburgh PA, USA I received this great nightview. It shows a view of the Cathedral of Learning on the left (it's the main building of the University of Pittsburgh) and the Heinz Chapel on the right. It's named like that since HJ Heinz donated the money to build it! Very interesting! :-)
