Card #1 from Philippines

This is my first postcard from Philippines, a country with 7,107 islands. Thanks to friend, Daniel (Nelo) for sending this beautiful card showing an outrigger canoe at a beautiful landscape of Palawan, El Nido. He also fixed two stamps matching my theme - watercraft.

The stamp at the top was issued in 1971, showing tourists sailing at the rapids at Pagsanjan falls. The stamp seen at the bottom was issued in 1998 to commemorate participation of Philippines at the Expo '98 held at Lisbon, Portugal.

The card reached me in 25 days, after being missent to Thailand.
