Bishkek Kyrgyzstan . Official Government Post Office.

Asia-Kyrgyzstan-Bishkek Here you can see some of the highlights of Bishkek capital of Kyrgyzstan. I enjoyed the couple of days there. Possibly the most progressive of the "Stans" and easiest to visit. 

This card and stamps are from the official Government Post Office in Bishkek. As you will note in a previous posting here that there are two Postal organisations in Kyrgyzstan. Interesting that the other mail took 2 weeks to Ireland This one took 2 months. Well at least it got here !! The stamps I purchased at the Philatelic Counter and there was an addition of vat tax . The view was that these were for collectors and not for postage. You could buy stamps without vat tax but only at the stamp counter. !! Sounds mad but regular readers of this blog will know that this is not the first time this has arisen. The same is the case in Kenya. Still lovely stamps and I love the unusual shape of the Bus stamp on the left.
