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 card shows a typical scene in the forested interior of Gabon: villagers crossing a river by "bac" or improvised ferry. Transport is treacherous in the humid, lush conditions of the forested interior, where roads turn into seasonal rivers of mud.
