|Sad to say there is no Post office near the area of Masi Mara I stayed or even a Postbox. So I took my card back to Nairobi to mail back home.|

|The nearest Post office to the area on Lake Malawi was Monkey Bay. The Post office was closed when I got there so this went into the letter box outside.|

Africa-Burundi-Bujumbura It is not often I put a card up here from a hotel , but this was a very nice hotel on lake Tanganyika. A lot of French soldiers on leave staying here. It was worth having some time out from this hectic African trip.
|Posted this card in the main Post office in Bujumbura. The ladies there at the counter were eager to please and show what stamps they had.|
|I especially like this stamp with Dancing in national colours. I have say I came away from Burundi with a very favourable view of the people|

Africa-Uganda-Kampala The capital of Uganda. Uganda was a very enjoyable country to visit. Very friendly and quite cheap. Stayed just outside Kampala overlooking Lake Victoria
|The Main Post office was very large and had a small philatelic section. However the official in charge had the keys and was off that day I visited. So only had a limited selection.|
Africa-Uganda-Kampala Many African cities are not very attractive. Kampala it pretty colourful and a busy city. I found it very safe to walk around .
|Loved this triangular stamp that had just been recently issued. Clear postmark with Kampala sorting office.|

United Kingdom-Northern Ireland-Belfast This is the new Titanic Museum in Belfast . It is fantastic and well worth the visit. I spend a good few hours and still did not have enough time. This is where the iconic Titanic was built.
|This is a United Kingdom Christmas stamp . I did not put a Northern Ireland stamp on this card as they have been on previous issues.|
Atlantic Ocean-Gran Canaria-Mogan This is the port on the island. Always visit here for lunch during my stay here. A nice charming fishing village
|The Post office had no selection of stamps so just had to do with this one.|

Pacific Ocean-Tonga-Vava'u-Neiafu This island is one of the main tourist attractions in Tonga, especially with those who have Yachts. The scenery was special but best seen from the air on the flight across.
|A very small wooden post office but busy with post restante. The stamp shows the previous King George who died suddenly.|
