Canary Islands, Spain

I had major problems with my Internet connection and computer so didn't update for a while again. The pile of cards waiting to be posted is getting bigger and bigger each day, and the the technical problems with my computer are solved, so why not to share this wonderful postcard that came from the Canary Islands? 
The Canary Islands (Islas Canarias are a Spanish archipelago located off the northwest coast of mainland Africa andone of Spain's 17 autonomous communities. The biggest islands forming the archipelago are:  TenerifeFuerteventuraGran CanariaLanzaroteLa PalmaLa GomeraEl HierroThe card itself shows the municipality Agaete, one of twenty-one municipalities of Gran Canaria. 

Adolfo used two stamps from a set showing traditional musical instruments of Spain. These two show  tambourine (pandereta) and castanets (castañuelas). Thanks, Adolfo :)
