Sunday Stamps II 115

Hello from the unseasonably warm American Midwest.  If it is this warm now, what will it be like this summer?

Anyway, this week's prompt for Sunday Stamps is stamps from the Northern hemisphere.  And I go way far north for this one!


Greenland!
A mis-named country/island to be sure.  I would not think there would be coral reefs this far north, but maybe some species are adapted to the cold waters there

Sunday Stamps II 114

For today's Sunday Stamps, we are visiting the Eastern hemisphere of our earth.  I decided to stop in Hong Kong, and went through stamps I have posted from my Postcrossing cards.  Here are two:


Stamps from 2013, showing bus transportation from previous years.  I am glad the cancellation is light so that I (and you) can see the details.

Sunday Stamps II 113

Hello from the warmer than usual American Midwest.

This week on Sunday Stamps we are visiting the Western Hemisphere.  I have a stamp from my Postcrossing days to share.


(That is 500 Chilean pesos, not dollars!)
It shows a chinchinero, a street performer.

Sunday Stamps II - 111

Hello from the American Midwest!  Running a little late today.

Our theme this week for Sunday Stamps is outer space.  I have two stamps that I have shared before (but they fit the theme so perfectly!), one from the USSR and and one from Russia.


One of my favorites, showing two cosmonauts in a scary-small capsule.  This stamp is from the early 1980's I believe.

A more recent stamp:



Of Valentina Tereshkova, first woman to have flown in space (in June 1963). This stamp is for the 50th anniversary of that flight.  Her call sign was Chaika  or "seagull" therefore the bird appears on this stamp.

Please visit SeeitonaPostcard and see who else is playing.
