Wow, this card is a first for me: from the remote outpost of Diego Garcia, in the British Indian Ocean Territory. The card shows a migratory shorebird with a large range across the southern seas. The stamp shows a historical ship, the HMS Victory. Overall, a great surprise and addition!
This wonderful card captures a profile of a Baobab at sunset, and shows the stunning light and beauty of Madagascar. The card arrived with several colorful stamps showing local flora, coastal scenery and prehistoric fauna. Overall, an absolute gem in my collection!
Several lovely cards came to me this month from Nevis, the twin island of St. Kitts in the Caribbean. Nevis issues its own stamps, so it is a philatelic rarity to see stamps postmarked Charlestown, Nevis in the mail, as the island's population is very small, just over 11,000 souls.
This multiview card shows scenery from the twin island nation of Antigua and Barbuda, a country close to my heart, as it was the very 1st foreign country I visited, when I was 16. I fondly remember the whitish-pinkish sand and the clear waters around the coast of the verdant islands.
