South America-Argentina-Buenos Aires Without doubt my favourite city in South America. In one sense you feel you are in Europe. From the tango to the famous wide streets. Full of life.
|I posted this at the main Post office. I see it got a philatelic cancellation. The philatelic section had a great selection of stamps and easy to choose. I have to say I do like that tango stamp.|
|The stamps here were pretty dull and unexciting.|
South America-Uruguay-Colonia del Sacramento A beautiful old town that is also a World Heritage Site. Lots of old cars and narrow streets. Very easy to get here from Buenos Aires . Took the ferry across the river. Really enjoyed the day here.
|In South America you tend to find the cancellation is much larger then elsewhere.|
|I really like the postmarks in use in Argentina . They look like first day of issue cancellations.|
South America-Argentina-Tierra del Fuego This is the National Park in Tierra del Fuego. Full of nature and clear skies.
|Posted this card at the National Park. They had a option to use a private mail operator. This is Seprit . So as you can see this is the label used. No postmark though. I see it went via Swiss Post !!|
