The first card shows us Adam's Peak, a 2,243 m tall conical mountain located in central Sri Lanka. It is well known for the Sri Pada or sacred footprint rock formation near the top. The formation is thought in Buddhist tradition to be the footprint of Buddha, in Hindu tradition to be Shiva, and in Islamic and Christian tradition, to be that of Adam or St. Thomas.
Ravindra uses a nice selection of stamps. On the left is 1 of 6 in a 2014 Pigeon Island Marine Nation Park set. It shows a Sperm Whale. On the right is a 2017 definitive , while the bottom stamp, from 2017, commemorates the centenary of the Colombo Railway Station.
Today's second card is also from Sri Lanka, another one from Ravindra. This time we can see Govinda Hela, a giant rock mountain standing approximately 570 m above the ground, located along the Siyambanduwa road, overlooking the Gal Oya region.
Ravindra used a matching stamp to the card here. The right stamp is from the set of 12 Unseen Sri Lanka set, issued in 2016. The other stamp is the Sperm Whale as noted earlier.
Now it's a card from Bari, Italy - showing an old time Cessna aircraft. Those were the days.
This card was sent by Antonio, who lives in Bari , a port city on the Adriatic Sea. I don't really know Antonio, apparently he sent this card at the request of Indrit. Antonio used a nice selection of stamps though. On the left is a Tourism stamp, 1 of 4 in a 1990 set.
The middle stamp is 1 of 2 in a set issued in 2017 commemorating the 80th Anniversary of the Historical Museum of the Guardia di Finanza. The stamp on the right , also issued in 2017, honours Mafia Victims, Pio La Torre and Rosario Di Salvo, both murdered in April of 1982.
Now it's time for the last card for today and the last for the month. This one arrived from Prague, Czech Republic. It's a look at Dancing House, constructed between 1992 and 1996. It was designed by Vlado Milunic and Frank Gehry. The top floor of the building is the only part of Dancing House open to the public, with a restaurant and bar.
Dominique used 2 stamps, one from 2016 and one from 2015. The stamp on the left celebrates the life of Antonin Holy, chemist and virologist. The other stamp celebrates the Chronicle of Dalimil - the first chronicle written in the Czech language.
There you have it, so ends February. Thanks to Dominique, Ravindra, Indrit & Antonio for the cards today. See you all in March.
