From one of the smallest nations in the world, thanks to my friend Will Chen who is volunteering there.The cover was posted at Nauru Philatelic Bureau and it was posted in 13th June.It took close to a month to arrive here.I'm so grateful to Will for helping me.Nauru is such a lovely country because of the marine life.
This cover made my week.
Thanks to my friend from Mozambique, Carlos Pinto I got another new country from Africa.This time its Swaziland.Alongside Lesotho,Swaziland is the only other kingdom in Africa.The stamps are really nice and the Postcard shows The famous Reed Dance Ceremony.Carlos was in a vacation there and he didn't forget me.Thanks a lot Carlos.
Never in a million years throught that I will get a cover from Suriname this soon.All thanks to Cheryll Tjon.It was sent on 4th July and only took a week to arrive here.Inside the cover there was a postcard of an amazing bird I always loved.There you can see three types of Toucans,Channel-billed Toucan (left),Red- blilled Toucan (second from left) and Toco Toucan (right)........I used to see Toucans at the Dehiwala Zoo but they do not exist there anymore.Thanks a lot Cheryll!
