Unseen Sri Lanka, Morro de Sao Paulo and a Postbriefkasten

I`m back, it`s been not quite a week, so that`s good. Today`s update will be a short one, just three cards - that`s all I received this week. Let`s start off with an Unseen Sri Lanka card. It`s a nice look at a group of the horses from the wild horse sanctuary , located on Delft Island . The island is about thirty km from the mainland and home to somewhere between 450 and 500 wild horses. These animals are bigger than a pony but smaller than the average horse. They are thought to be descendents of horses released by the Dutch.



Ravindra used a stamp from 2016 , which is identical to the picture on the card. It is from a set of 12.




My second card shows a few views of Morro de Sao Paulo - the fountain, square , beach and the whitewashed Church of Our Lady of Light. Morro de Sao Paulo is a car-free village on the northeastern tip of Brazil`s Tinhare Island.



This card is from Reginald , a Postcrosser living in Feira de Santana, Bahia. He used a stamp from 2002 showing a musical instrument, a stamp we have all seen many times over the years.

It`s the last card, already. It`s from Germany and shows a street letter box.



Anne used a couple of stamps, one of which - the Brandenburg Gate stamp, is upside down. The top stamp was issued in 2017 and is from a set of 2 Baby Animals.



Well there you have it - that was easy, a piece of cake. Thanks for cards go out to Ravindra, Reg and Anne.  Thanks for dropping by and be sure to check GemsWorldPostcards out again real soon. Take care.
