This awesome card shows the Sundarbans National Park, a 10,000 sq. km. wilderness of mangrove forest at the confluence of the rivers Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna. It is remarkable for Bangladesh, which is one of the most densely populated countries on earth. The card was franked with two colorful stamps promoting the World Solar Programme.
Wow, a rare postcard from the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan! The card shows the Phunakha Dzong, from the district of the Phunakha, former capital of the kingdom (since 1955 the capital is in Thimphu). The card was franked with a delightful stamp showing a fierce mythical lion.
This amazing card was posted to me from Goma, at the foothills of the Virungas Mtns, home to one of the last populations of Mountain Gorillas. The card was franked with no less than nine stamps, including overprints. A rare gem from a very remote place!
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!
