Learning with postcards: Andorra

Hola!

Flag_of_Andorra.svg
This is my second ”Learning with postcards” post. I decided to write these posts in alphabetical order. Anyway Ana sent this postcard to me from Andorra. Yeah Andorra? To be honest, i didn’t know anything about this country before getting this postcard. On this postcard you’ll see a map of touristic places in Andorra. The capital of Andorra is Andorra la Vella, it’s located in west of the country. About 23 thousand people live in this city and it’s the biggest city of Andorra. There is interesting info about this country. Andorra has traditionally had one of the world’s lowest unemployment rates. Let’s go to Andorra for a job!! Besides the people who live in Andorra have one of the highest life expectancies in the world. Another reason to go and live there, right?

Andorra has been effected Spain and France mostly. If you look carefully the postcard, you can see French flag on right. Official language is Catalan, but you can come across people who speak French, Spanish or Portuguese. Besides, Andorra is not a member of the European Union, but the euro is official currency.

Here the stamp Ana used to send this postcard:
People call Andorra ”Principat d’Andorra” in Catalan. The symbol on the stamp is Coat of arms of Andorra. It has existed for centuries. It incorporates the arms of the Bishop of Urgell and the Count of Foix, the two princes of Andorra.
