Marshall Islands

Pacific Ocean-Marshall Islands-Majuro   Majuro is one of those very low lying atolls in the Pacific. This is not one of the beauty spots of the Pacific and gets very few visitors. Also not country that has lots of Postcards. I found it most difficult to find a postcard here. Usually I prefer a scene and one that I had viewed personally. But sometimes you just have to take what they have . Hence this postcard featuring life under the sea. 

Another large cancellation, like Micronesia. Interesting it seems to suggest US Postal Service? Does anyone know more about that? The Post office also had no selection of stamps. This for a Territory that issues many stamps. I got the impression from the Post office that most of these stamps never even see the light of day in The Marshall Islands.

  1. Yes, USPS runs the postal service in the Marshall Islands and Palau. Its the same rate to post there from here in the US as it is to post anywhere else in the U.S. According to Wikipedia, they have a "free association" with the U.S. (More details on Wikipedia)
