Khatuna sent me again a beautiful cover from Georgia. There are a lot of nice stamps attached: The top left stamp was issued in 2006 and commemorates the 250th birthday of the famous composer W. A. Mozart (1756-1791). The next stamp depicts the white-tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla L.). Then there is a 2006 stamp depicting an old painting. The two stamps at the right are the two stamps of the EUROPA set issued on May 27, 2005. The set has the topic “Food & Cooking”.

In the bottom left corner there is one 2007 stamp depicting the Kazbeg mountain, which is the third highest mountain in Georgia. The neighbour stamp is the same 2006 stamp as above depicting the painting.

Khatuna, thank you for sending me such a beautiful cover again!
