Montevideo, Uruguay

One more card for today... and it's from a new country! ..yeah, it's my first postcard received from Uruguay.

Telecommunications Tower is a 158 meter tall building with 37 floors in Montevideo, Uruguay. This is the headquarters of Uruguay's government-owned telecommunications company, ANTEL, and is the tallest building in the country. It was designed by architect Carlos Ott. It is situated by the side of Montevideo's bay. The tower was completed by American Bridge and other design/built consortium team members on March 15, 2000.

The stamps on this card are really pretty. The one on the right was issued earlier this year. I'm not quite sure of the theme as I know very little Spanish, but it could possibly show local handicrafts?? The stamp in the middle was issued in 1999, with the theme 'flowers'. The one on the left I'm not sure of.. or whether it's even an actual stamp. I saw it in the picture of two stamps from 2007 (and 2009) with the theme 'diplomatic relations with Russia' but it was just a tab in the middle.. and what it has to do with Russia I have no idea of. *confused*
