First Postcard From Velu



Today I received my first postcard from Velu, of The Stamps of Velu fame. It is a great addition to my worldwide postcard collection. It was sent from Dakar, Senegal. The front shows a typical city view . Velu used 2 different stamps on the card. The first is a 2006 issue, 1 of a set of 4 , issued to show a policy of Againt Excision or female circumcision. Let's hope that they (Senegal) do more that just issue stamps on this important issue, and that they outlaw this mutilation of females , altogether. A few other African countries should do the same. The other stamp Velu used is again 1 of a set of 4 , issued in 2003 featuring Traditional Costumes. Thanks to Velu for increasing my country count to 168. That's the number of different countries from which I have so far received at least 1 stamped postcard.
