These are some of the stunning postcards that have come to me from among the world's most remote places and islands, with a special focus on the scenery, wildlife and culture of Africa. If you live or travel in exotic places, send along a card to display on the site. See also "Africa Stamps" on Facebook or Contact: maravalman @ gmail.com
This lovely card shows a traditional creole house built in the colonial style, from the Regent quarter of Sierra Leone's capital, perched on hills above the main city center of Freetown. It was franked with several stamps from a birds definitive series.
This lovely card comes from a friend visiting the "Spice Island" of Grenada, in the Lesser Antilles. A major producer of nutmeg and other spices, the island has gorgeous scenery and secluded beaches, an escape from more popular neighboring islands.
This lovely card shows a typical landscape view of one of the many volcanoes that dominate the horizon of El Salvador. The card was franked with a stamp showing shipping, important for transporting the country's coffee, a key export commodity.
