Ma première lettre de Grèce! My first greek cover!
Thanks to Spyros, I can show you today my very first letter from Greece. This cover has been mailed from Chania (La Canée in french, La Canea in italian), the second largest city of Crete, the most populous of the Greek islands.
The 0,72€ stamp shows us Grigoris Bithikotsis (1922-2005), a very popular Greek lolk singer and songwriter with a career spanning five decades.
The 0,05€ stamp is depicting a typical landscape of Paros, a Cyclades island. A windmill and the blue of the sea are a passport for romantic holidays through the Aegean sea.
Spyros was kind enough to join a nice postcard of the Venetian port of his city, Chania.
