I'm back from Manchester, where I had a very very nice time. A very good New Year eve celebration... Unexpectedly, my stay in Manchester had a interesting philatelic twist. The hotel where I was staying has a restaurant called the "colony restaurant" which is decorated with big curtains picturing stamps from former british colonies. And more. In the corridor of the hotel, the walls are decorated with sort of paintings that actually contains stamps and covers. I tried to take a photo of one located near my room. The picture is not so good (the corridor was quite dark) but I think you can get the idea.
Back home I found some interesting covers in my mail box that I will show you on this blog in the next days.
