Colors of Bonaire
Yesterday was quite the red-letter day, mailwise. I got home and found no less than six postcards in my mailbox, and no bills to spoil the cache. Also, FedEx was nice enough to leave a box of postcards that I ordered to send out to you, from the good folks at RedStamp.com – Stylish Correspondence.
All the cards were terrific, but this yellow-shouldered parrot from The Tropical Blogger really stood out. It comes all the way from Bonaire, which is part of the Netherlands Antilles, and is one of the “ABC” islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao). Thanks for thinking of me!
The stamp is an issue from 2006 for Christmas and New Year’s. Either this is an excess of postage for the card, or it means that Bonaire has enjoyed a few years without a postal rate increase. I hope it’s the latter.
