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 comes from the Pacific coast of Panama,and shows a fishing village. Part of Colombia until 1903, Panama became independent with help from the U.S. The canal was finished in 1914, and shipping has been a mainstay of the economy, alongside banking.
