Atlantic Ocean-Canary Islands-Gran Canary-Las Palmas Just back from my real holidays..lol.. Where I just relax with friends and no major sightseeing. This is a hologram card.
Europe-United Kingdom-London The Post office near Trafalgar square is excellent. I was very impressed with the selection of stamp they could offer me. This card features the printing press for the Penny Black issued 175 years ago this month.

Africa-Cameron Here is the Main Post office in Douala .
Africa-Central African Republic This is the very nice lady who assisted me with the stamps in Bangui. Loads of stamps as they had a philatelic office... The stamps were not in great condition, but she was delighted to see me .
|This is outside the Post office in Bangui.|
|As I was walking around Bangui, just had to take this photo. You see quite a bit of this in Africa. Local artists painting for advertising.|

Africa-Equatorial Guinea (Rio Muni)-Bata Not very easy to find a card in Bata but here is one. I had been to Bata airport only on the way to Annobon Island flying from Malabo the capital of Equatorial Guinea. This was in 2007.
|Here I am at Bata Airport with Christine a great fellow traveller from New York. This was the last time I seen my Bata Postcards !!!|
|Here is a statue of the President of Equatorial Guinea. I later found out on the way home that you can be arrested for taking photos of this statue....|
|Here is the Island of Annobon. At the time not easy to get too. But a very interesting Island to visit. No Post office here at that time.|

Asia-Malaysia-Redang Island I have to say this is equal to any beach in the world I have been on. The sand was like powder. Great views and not overcrowded. A 40 minute boat ride from the mainland.
|No Post office on the Island so posted his in Terengganu. I usually don't put cards up that don't have a postmark, but this was such a memorable island to visit I have included it here.|
Asia-Malaysia-Ipoh Not a great selection of cards in Ipoh, so here is some local Malaysian fruit.
|Posted in Ipoh.|
