Just a short update today. Two postcards arrived, both new countries for my collection, Malawi and Nepal. The card from Malawi, shows the 620 ton S.S. Ilala departing from Monkey Bay. This working African ferry has sailed up and down Lake Malawi for over 50 years. The card , sent by Kassam Okhai , has 2 stamps of the 2003 butterfly series, both the K40 value.
The other card , from Nepal, shows a view from Gokyo Mountain, including Gokyo Lake , which is in The Everest Region. It was sent to me by a member of The Kopan Monastery in Kathmandu. The card has 3 Nepal stamps on it, including a 2004 Sculpture Series, value R10, along with a 2005 single of The Sherpa Tribes Ornaments set, this one a R25 value showing The Limbu Tribe Ornaments, and finally a 2007 single showing Mt. Everest, value R5.
