Rabaul - Bismarck Archipelago

Pacific Ocean-Bismarck Archipelago-Rabaul  This is showing the famous Mount Rabaul and the Tavurur Volcano . Rabaul was the capital of East New Britain province. It was mostly destroyed by falling ash from the volcanic eruption in 1994. The capital was moved to Kokopo 20 km away. There is not much to see here now , but worth coming for the view . 

There is still a small centre in Rabaul and inside one of the shopping centres is a small post office. I had given up on this card as it has taken nearly 6 months to get here. But better late then never. Nice clear cancelation. They had no choice in stamps at this post office.
