Cards from David, of Labrador, The Graduate and a few others

Hello again, I think it's time for another update.
My first card for today is from Fiji. It is a "Bula "or  hello card showing native Fijians performing a traditional dance.

David from Ireland sent this card. I'm not sure if he's back home yet or still in the South Pacific. He left around the 3rd week of August for 3-4 weeks. Some guys got it hard , it seems. David used 2 stamps , the Flower of Fiji stamp, issued in 2004 and a 2012 Sustainable Energy stamp, 1 of 4 in the set.
David writes the fine postcard and travel blog - Postcards : A World Travelogue. 

Here's the 2 stamps.

This next card is also from David, continuing his trip in Samoa., The Cradle of Polynesia. It's a look at Apia, on Upolu Island.

This time David used a really new stamp, issued 22 July 2013 . It's my first stamp of  Prince George of Cambridge, George Alexander Louis.

Card # 3 is another for my Towns of Newfoundland  and Labrador postcard collection. This time it's Battle Harbour, Labrador. Battle Harbour is a summer fishing station, formerly a permanent settlement, located on the Labrador coast in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. You can see a typical coastal view of a Labrador town. 

The card was sent from the Battle Harbour  Historic Trust. It was handstamped by the trust on August 31 and then postmarked by Canada Post on Sept 5th at Mary's Harbour. A 2012 Baby Wildlife stamp was used- this one showing Raccoons. 

The Graduate is coming up next. It's the classic scene of Benjamin ( Dustin Hoffman) standing fully clothed, except for socks and shoes , as Mrs Robinson ( Anne Bancroft ) straightens out her nylons. The Graduate was and is a great movie , it had great stars, great music and great direction. Who can forget Ben saying "Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me .  Aren't you ? "
The card arrived from The Netherlands, sent by Postcrosser Justine. It had a common Dutch stamp which I've shown a number of times , so I see no need to show it again. 

Hey, that's four cards already . Here's another one. This one comes from Anastasia in Chernihiv, an historic city in northern Ukraine.  It is a head-on view of an Airbus A319. A great card for my Aircraft on postcards collection.

Anastasia used a definitive from the 2008 set of 13.

Now for the last card for this time. It comes from Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia & Herzegovina. On the  card you can see a number of sights in  the city.

The 2 same stamps are from a set of 6 definitives featuring Vegetables issued in 2006.

So ends another update. Thanks to David, Battle Harbour Trust, Justine and Anastasia  for their cards. 
Tune in again soon.
