Frogs carousel (2)

Some times ago I have shown you a postal card send by Lenka and picturing a frog carousel. My post was raising several questions and Lenka was kind enough to send me the answers. I decided to share them with you.

First of all the translation of the words on the picture side of the postcard is the following :

"You can certainly find most frogs on the turtle races. Fathers of little frog children made a carousel for them there. But the carousel is still not turning around. One father is convincing the others that to make the carousel moving the right way they have to push the counter direction. What do you think? Is he right?"

I also asked about the blue postmarks. Here are some explanation. The one in the right bottom corner which says "LET HORKOVZDUSNEHO BALONU ODLOZEN" means "A hot-air balloon ascent postponed". The second circle postmark means: "Hot-air balloon OK 5006 * Stamped on board". The officials have probably decided to put the note about the postponing of the ascent because of the black postmark, where you can read "Transported by the balloon 12. 9. 2008".

Lenka also added one scaring information about the stamp exhibition held in Prague. The left part of the exhibition hall (this hall was actually quite old, built at the end of the 19th century) has burned down in the middle of the October month. In this part of the palace the Blue Mauritius stamp was exhibited during the venue!

Thank you Lenka for all these details !
