The mail lady, today , brought two postcards, one of which is a new country for my collection. It is country #159 and the postcard is from Samoa- The Treasured Islands Of The South Pacific. The card shows four different scenes of Apia, the country's capital. It was sent to me by Anita of The Siufaga Beach Resort and has an irregular shaped stamp, that of a shell. It is the $2.10 value issued in 2006. The card was mailed 01 Nov and took 19 days to arrive Canada.
The 2nd card today is from Portugal, sent by Jose again. It is a quite nice card showing the beach in The Algarve. This is somewhere that I visited , way back in 1976, along with Lisbon and Faro. The beach looks just as good as when I was then 30 years ago. Thanks Jose.
