Oldenzaal is an 850-year-old town located in the mid-east of the Netherlands, near the border with Germany. The buildings in the foreground are old houses, and in the back you can see the Basilica of St Plechelm (the patron saint of the Netherlands), where his 1,050th anniversary was celebrated in 2004. The writer of the postcard says that she sings in the church choir there.
Once again I cannot get TNT post to load, but this stamp is pretty transparently celebrating Aniek van Koot, a famous and talented wheelchair tennis player.
These appear to be definitives in make-up rates of 2 and 5 eurocents.
