This Danish cover comes to me from the municipality of Gentofte, in the northern suburbs of Copenhagen. Three "Everyday Cycling" stamps. The set of five was issued on 2 January 2023 in a sheet of ten stamps. There are more bicycles in Copenhagen then cars. Even more bicycles than people. It has been estimated that 9 out of 10 people in Denmark own a bicycle.

Slovenia's Black Lake in the Pohorje
From the outskirts of Ljubljana. The stamp sheet shows an image of the Black Lake in the Pohorje mountains in northeastern Slovenia. Silt at the bottom of the lake formed by decaying vegetation makes the water appear very dark, hence the name "Black Lake".

200 Years of the Post Office in Portugal
A pair of stamps from a set of four commemorating the 200th anniversary of the post office in Portugal. Not the establishment of mail services. CTT was founded in 1520! This is just the anniversary of the first physical post offices in the country, around the same time as the first house to house mail services. Thank you Pedro, for this nice FDC.

Letter Writing Day 2020, Japan
I think it's a letter writing day sheet but I'm not really sure. It was issued on 23 October 2020. Kogota post office is in the town of Misato in Miyagi prefecture. At one time there was a village called Kogota but it was merged into Misato nearly 20 years ago.
