First of all I wish you all the best for 2018 !
This is my first card for 2018 and it's a surprise card that I received from Frédérique wich is a colleague of  a girlfriend Sonia.
Frédérique is making a voyage through East and West Canada and California so I  was surprised to see a stamp from Cuba on the card !
There's no cancel on the card so I don't know how long it took to reach me.
