#589 Philippines 12/06/21

Gero sent me this beautiful cover from the Philippines, thank you! It was posted in Lucena City on June 21 and arrived on June 28, 2012.

The attached mini-sheet was issued on November 10, 2011, and commemorates the Day of the Galleon Festival (Día de Galeón), which celebrates the maritime importance of the Manila galleons, which linked the Philippines to Mexico and Spain. More info can be found here.
