The background to this trip was the first time I visited Antarctica I did visit a Chilean Scientific station. These stations often have a Post office included. However it that case it did not. So I could not mail a postcard out.. So here I am back..
|Delighted to visit the Post office . Fellow members on the trip stand by.|
|The Post office in Chile Antarctica is not open every day. In fact the day I was here it was closed. However I managed to hunt down the Postmaster and got it open .|
|Chilean Base Eduardo Frei Base on King George Island.|
|This is February 2018 - Summer time not much snow on the Island itself|
|One of my photos of a penguin coming out of the water.|
|Post office photo again Eduardo Frei . King George Island|
|Enjoyed watching the penguins. This was a full day overnight trip.|

South America-Argentina-Buenos Aires Another postcard from BA. This area of La Boca is just one of those very touristic places one has to go to .. Something different and lots of colourful buildings.
|I like these very large postmarks.. I have only seen ones like this in Central and South America. Though I am sure not many postcards are sent any more with the price of Stamps in Argentina. Bearing in mind I found the country great value otherwise.|

South America-Argentina-Iguazu Falls Another picture postcard. I had to show this one as it shows some of the wonderful wildlife that one sees in this area.. So much more to see then just the magical waterfall
|Still cant get over the cost of a stamp to send a postcard. But I do love the large postmark with the state of Misiones region in Argentina.|

|There was no Post office in the immediate area, but there was a post box at the Airport. Glad I had my own stamps as the newsagent was out of stamps when I was there.|

South America-Chile-Punta Arenas The gateway city in southern Chile to Patagonia . I was here 25 years ago on a cruise and did not remember much. Stayed right in the centre. Very busy with tourists .
|Visited the main Post Office in the city. They kindly brought me behind the counter and showed me what stamps they had in the book. Quite a good selection which included miniature sheets.|

Africa-Mali-Mopti A very enjoyable town to visit. A river port where you see all the ferries and the towns they visit. The River is only active from August to December when the water is sufficient .
|This card is showing a selection of stamps that were available in the Post Office in Mopti. Hard to read anything on the Postmark.|
