South Africa

Africa-South Africa-Cape Town I have to say this is one of my favourite cities in the world. This is a view from just outside where I stay. Lovely to walk here. It has been 11 years since I have been back. Loved my time here and very good value if you are coming from outside South Africa. 

I went to the main GPO in Cape Town down in the city. It is a large Post office surrounded by shops . There is no Philatelic counter . They did not have a full selection of stamps. I was told to go down to the Post office at the Waterfront, as they get more tourists there and will have a better selection. This is a small post office on the first floor . Again no philatelic counter and no stamps in sets. But they did show me stamps in the stock book and they had some new issues. 

Africa-South Africa-Paarl  This area is known as the Cape winelands. Less then one hours drive outside the city of Cape Town. This card is from babylonstoren where my friends and I had lunch. 

I posted all my South African cards in Cape Town. All have laser printed postmarks. At least they have a competition to design a stamp. 

Africa-South Africa-Clarens  This small town in in the Free State . Driving on the way from Lesotho to Bloemfontein to catch a flight to Cape Town. The town itself is very nice with a old world feel to it.  

On the day I was in Clarens I had no South African stamps . So this card had to wait until Cape Town to get mailed. The stamps are part of a large set in relation to a World Geographical conference being held in South Africa.
