#123 Tunisia 09/02/16

tunisia-090216My first cover from Tunisia was posted in Djerba on February 16, 2009. The attached 2008 stamp commemorates the Tunisian author Mahmoud Messadi (1911-2004), who also was minister of education and culture. Among his merits are the modernisation of the Tunisian education system and the foundation of the Tunisian university. The stamp was cancelled with an interesting postmark, advertising for the Tunisian Post using the words “La Poste Tunisienne toujours plus … vers le modernisme” (the Tunisian Post always more … towards modernism).

Thank you, my Tunisian friend, for sending me this nice cover!
