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
Two cards arrived this week showing views of Casablanca, the largest city in Morocco with over 3 million residents. Made famous in a 1942 wartime movie, the area has ancient roots, with settlement dating from the 7th century BC.
This postcard simply transported me when I received it: to the lush hills of the Cirque de Salazie, on the Indian Ocean isle of Reunion. This area is a dormant volcanic caldera in the central Piton des Neiges area, which includes the highest elevations on the island.
