BACK On Line

Hello Friends and Readers of this blog. 

Back on line after a short break. There are some new stamps to post from IRELAND and TURKEY.  But that is for tomorrow.  Now we have to finish what I started last week. 
The answer to the question of the contest of last week is "PERU".  The lighthouse in the photo is "La Marina" (ALL G 2045) and it was one of the two stamps of the 2009 serie.

This is the other one that complete the serie.
Clock Tower Muelle de Guerra (G 2058)
- Drazen from Croatia
- Jaap from the Netherlands

Closed for Vacations

Hello friends and readers of this blog.  It´s that time of the year for me... Vacations.  No new entries until mid April. See you then.

***Updated April 05***

Where is located this Lighthouse?
Helping data:
1- This lighthouse was on a stamp in 2009.  It is not listed here. 
2- The palm trees also appear in that stamp.
Today I was in the local post office and I have 2 sets of that serie for 2 winners that answer correctly the country where is located.  If there are more than 2 winners,  I will flip the coin to choose them. 
Send me an e-mail with your answer (do not use the comments section).
Just a few more days and back to work.
