The most recent letter from Luxembourg, Luxembourg was posted on 11th July, 2011. The cancellation is legible on the nice stamp.
However, another letter (posted on 30th June, 2011) is much more interesting as it does not only have nice cancellation and beautiful stamps on the envelope, but inside I found a nice postcard of the country, too!
This simple letter was sent from Vilnius, the capital city of Lithuania. According to the crystal clear cancellation the date of posting is 11th July, 2011. The stamp is simply beautiful. Thanks to Ricardas!
The letter was sent from Beirut, the capital city of Lebanon on 13th July, 2011. The cancellation is clearly legible (even the Arabic one!) on the stamps, one of which shows Suleiman Frangieh, who was the Lebanese president from 1970 to 1976.
This registered mail was sent from Riga, Latvia on 9th May, 2011. "Riga" and the date of posting are clearly legible on the cancellation. As for the stamp, it is a whole souvenir sheet I got here featuring Latvian basketball!
The letter was sent from Bishkek, which is the capital city of Kyrgyzstan, on 15th July, 2011. Although there are no stamps on the envelope, there are more than half a dozen different cancellations or other postal signs on it!
Inside the envelope I found a beautiful postcard with a peaceful landscape. Thanks to Nadia!
The letter was sent from Cheongpa, Seoul, South Korea on 4th July, 2011. The details of the posting can be found on the clear cancellation and the stamps show a specimen of the Korean flora and fauna. Thanks to Bora!
This exciting postcard was sent all the way from Nairobi, Kenya on 12th July, 2011. It shows various photos of an African safari. Although the cancellation is not very clear, the stamps are really nice featuring a coconut and some groundnuts. Yummy!
The letter was sent from Almaty, the largest city of Kazakhstan, on 11th March, 2009. The cancellation is clearly legible and the stamps feature two other Kazakh cities: Astana (the capital city) and Karaganda.
This truly wonderful letter was sent from Jabal Amman, Jordan on 30th June, 2011. There is no cancellation on the stamps but there is a self-adhesive with all the particulars of the posting. The stamps are awesome! Beside a stamp of Jordan civil service, there are two stamps showing mushrooms (including ringless panther), and two others showing desert reptiles. Thanks to Nidal!
This nice letter was sent from Pardes Hanna, Israel on 3rd July, 2011. There are two beautiful stamps on the envelope, one of which has the emblem of the country on it, the menorah. You can actually read the inscription on the cancellation if you know a little Hebrew... :)
The letter above is a document of postal history, indeed. Iraq is now almost an impossible country to get a letter from because there are places where there is no postal service whatsoever. Yet, what makes this letter even more unique is that it was posted on 24th and 25th December (so basically at Christmas) in Baghdad, Iraq and the letter arrived in Hungary on 8th January 2007. Why is it interesting? Because the stamp shows Saddam Hussein and when the letter was posted he was alive, but by the time I got it he had already been dead... (he was hanged on 30th December 2006). Jealous, aren't you?
This beautiful postcard was sent by Frida and Adrian from Reykjavík, the capital city of Iceland. In the picture youcan see the Anarfjörður, a beautiful fjord in Iceland, while in the back the stamp shows the Eyjfjallajökull, a volcano that last erupted in 2010. I think we all remember this... :) The postcard contains a private message, too, that's why it was written in Icelandic... :)
The most recent letter I got from Hong Kong is the one posted on 19th May, 2011. The cancellation is clearly legible and the stamp shows "Des Voeux Road West" in Hong Kong.
Yet, personally I prefer the letter above, which was sent not a lot earlier than the one on top. According to the cancellation the date of posting is 27th April, 2011. The stamps are much more interesting here featuring the birds of Hong Kong as well as the Centenary of Railway Service in the country.
Guinea is a really hard-to-get country, that's why the letter was sent registered to minimize the chance of getting lost. It came all the way from Conakry, the capital city of the country.The cancellation is exceptionally beautiful and the stamps are also unique featuring the death of Arthur C. Clarke.
