I received just one postcard yesterday. It was from Nevis. Nevis makes country # 205 in my collection. Now before any of you purists out there email and say that Nevis is not a country, I agree , you are right. Nevis is part of The Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, a federal two-island nation. But it does issue its own stamps and that makes it work as a stamp issuing entity and welcome in my collection. So on to Nevis.
Nevis is an island in the Caribbean, located about 350 km southeast of Puerto Rico and 80 km west of Antigua. Its capital is Charlestown. As mentioned above, Nevis is part of The Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. Nevis is where a young Horatio Nelson, of The Battle of Trafalger fame, was stationed as a young sea captain and also where he met and married his wife, Frances Nisbet.
The card shows a rain forest on Nevis. I can't say who sent this card as it was not signed. The only thing written on it was the slogan '' I love Nevis"'.
The stamp used is from 2000 , 1 of a set of 4 , featuring tropical fish.
That's it for this entry, more next week. Comments please ?
