Jean Pierre sent me this nice cover from Mayotte, thank you! It was posted in Mamoudzou on December 31, 2011 and arrived on January 18, 2012.
Mayotte stopped issuing own stamps by the end of 2011, so this letter is possibly one of the last, where only Mayotte stamps were used.
The 2011 stamps depict the Northern Islands (“Les Ilots du Nord”) and the Return of the Fisherman (“Le retour du Pêcheur”).

The left stamp was issued on 10 September 2011 and therefore was used before its issuing date! It depicts a Madjiliss ceremony. The two stamps on the right depict an orange (Citrus × sinensis) and kapok tree (Ceiba pentandra) with fruits. This set was issued on 18 August, 2011.

The cover was posted in Mamoudzou on October 23, 2009. It is a postal stationery depicting a lemur; the imprinted stamp shows some birds. The additional stamp was issued in 2009 and commemorates the jasmine.
I am trying to find out more about the stamp and postal stationery.
