#702 Ethiopia 13/09/23

Ethiopia 130923 Ethiopia 130923cardThank you, Kate, for sending this nice cover and postcard from Ethiopia! The cover was posted in Gondar (ጎንደር) on September 23 and arrived on October 1, 2013.

The left stamp is part of a set of 25 stamps, which was issued on December 12, 2000. All of the stamps show the same picture of a Menelik’s Bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus meneliki). The right stamp is part of a set of 23 stamps, which was issued on June 19, 2008. The picture is very similar to the other stamp set.

Kate included a card, which depicts a view on the Gondar Atsse Fasile Castle (Fasil Ghebbi).

Kate has an excellent website about her life and projects in Ethiopia. You can find it here.
