Just A Couple of Postcards
Today I just want to show a couple of postcards that arrived yesterday. The first card is from Sri Lanka. It was sent by Aravinda Jayasundara of Maspotha. As the postcard says, Sri lanka , a Land Like No Other, is an island nation in South Asia, located 31 kilometres off the southern coast of India. It is home to around twenty million people and is often referred to as the Pearl of the Indian Ocean. Aravinda used 2 each of 2 different stamps. The 2 large vertical stamps are from 2008 and mark 60 years of Peace through dignified Freedom from the British after peaceful negotiations in 1948. The other 2 square stamps are from 2007 and commemorate Muthiah Muralidaran , the highest wicket taker in test cricket.
The vertical postcard shown is from Taiwan, Republic of China. It was sent by Sarah, who goes by the handle of So Crazy Sarah.
My last card today is from The People's Republic of China. It was sent by Zhou Fan. It is a prestamped postcard to which Zhou Fan added two extra , nice stamps showing birds.
As always, have fun with your postcards, covers and stamps.
