Misleading

Netherlands NL-2493755 received 05-28-2014

Sent by: MarianneGroenenboom
From: Rhoon, Netherlands
ID number: NL-2493755
Notes: The caption at the bottom of the card says "Greetings from Poortugaal".  No, that's not Portugal, the country.  It's Poortugaal, a village in the Netherlands near the city of Rotterdam.  Wikipedia doesn't have much to say about the village, but it does mention a 15th century church, which I would guess is the one pictured here.  Since 1985, Poortugaal has been part of the municipality of Albrandswaard, along with Rhoon, the sender's hometown.
