These are some of the stunning postcards that have come to me from among the world's most remote places and islands, with a special focus on the scenery, wildlife and culture of Africa. If you live or travel in exotic places, send along a card to display on the site. See also "Africa Stamps" on Facebook or Contact: maravalman @ gmail.com
This lovely card shows a rural road near Kissidougou, in central Guinea (the recent Ebola epidemic began not far from here). This card was franked with a lovely stamp showing women transporting traditional baskets
This lovely card shows a scene on the Niger River, lifeline to a number of W. African countries as it flows toward the delta in the Gulf of Guinea. Niger's capital, Niamey, grew along this vital waterway in an otherwise dry nation.
This lovely scenic card shows the coastline and reef of Kosrae, one of four island groups in the Federated States of Micronesia. The card was franked with a lovely stamp showing a typical island beauty
This gorgeous aerial view shows the Fijian, a seaside resort located on the small private island of Yanuca. The card came franked with a stamp showing the Many-Coloured Fruit Dove, with a town cancel from Nadi.
Recently, I had the pleasure of receiving this very nice photo-card taken by Rolf on the slopes of the active volcanic peak of Mt. Cameroon; the card was franked by a stamp showing the international symbol of AIDS awareness
This colorful card was posted by a friend in Ghana, and shows a typical rural scene, with vendors selling fresh produce at a local market. This card was franked by a small stamp showing local fruit, and a commemorative issue celebrating the Universal Postal Union
This lovely card shows an Albatross and chick at the nest, one of many seabird species that nest and feed in the Falkland Islands. The card was franked with two lovely stamps, showing penguins and a colorful fungi species.
