WOW! A great postcard came in this week (much-delayed) from Bairiki, Tarawa - capital of the sparsely populated Pacific nation of Kiribati. It shows an aerial view of the frighteningly low-lying atoll where the capital is located. Kiribati is one of the countries most at risk from sea level rise associated with climate change. The lovely stamps depict Scouts and a ship-to-shore ferry boat.
