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 multiview card comes from Dakar, Senegal in West Africa. The lower image shows a pirogue making its way across evening-tinged waters. My favorite image is the inset of baobabs in the twilight (center top).
This striking scene is one of the very few cards I have ever seen from Benin, West Africa. Much of the country's population lives along the coast, where houses are often built above waterways and pirogues are used for transport and fishing.
