It's pouring it down and I'll have to go out in a moment, to pick up a parcel from the post office in Dudley town centre as the postman was too lazy and just pushed a "sorry, you were out" card through the mailbox - when I was actually IN, and so was one of Matt's brothers. Why can't they ring the doorbell, surely it can't be THAT hard?! Grrr.
I'm so jealous of one of my colleagues at my volunteering job - she's going to Morocco this weekend on holiday. I wish I could go there, too. Or somewhere else where it's WARM. Tunisia wouldn't be bad, either, and it's so beautiful over there! I recently received a postcard from a postcrosser who went on holiday in Tunisia. She saw this impressive amphitheatre there amongst other things.
The impressive ruins of the largest colosseum in North Africa, a huge amphitheatre which could hold up to 35,000 spectators, are found in the small village of El Jem. This 3rd-century monument illustrates the grandeur and extent of Imperial Rome. [source]
The stamp is from a set of 4 stamps issued in 2009, depicting Fruits of Tunisia. This one here is Cherry (one of my favourite fruits!!).
