Hello friends!

I received this card via postcardunited.com! I was pretty delighted, as this is a really special card from a country you don’t ususally get a lot cards! 😀

Guyana officially the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, is a sovereign state on the northern mainland of South America. It is, however, included in the Caribbean due to its rich cultural, historical, and political ties with the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). Guyana is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the north, Brazil to the south and southwest, Suriname to the east and Venezuela to the west. With 215,000 square kilometres, Guyana is the fourth-smallest country on mainland South America after Uruguay, Suriname, and French Guiana.

Did you know?

Guyana is an Amerindian word and this Name means “land of many waters”.

I send love!

Hello friends!

Here goes another nice card I got from Guyana via postcardsunited! Thank you Nigel! It seems like the stamp was stolen 😦 This is too bad 😦

Choloepus is a genus of mammals of Central and South America, within the family Megalonychidae consisting of two-toed sloths. The two species of Choloepus (which means “lame foot”), Linnaeus’s two-toed sloth and Hoffmann’s two-toed sloth , are the only surviving members of the family Megalonychidae.

Looks cute,  don’t you think?

I send love!

Hello friends!

This is a great card I got via postcardsunited. Thank you Frederick!
I love the Elvis Presley Stamp! I did not even know that there are such cool stamps there 🙂

The flag of Guyana, known as The Golden Arrow, has been the nationalflag of Guyana since May 1966 when the country became independent from the United Kingdom.

The proportions of the national flag are 3:5. The colours are symbolic, with green for agriculture and forests, white for rivers and water, gold formineral wealth, black for endurance, and red for zeal and dynamism.

Great card!

I send love!

Hello friends!

 My first postcard from Guyana! Thank you very much Jealisha! I love the card!

This card shows the City Hall in the capital of Guyana, Georgetown.
Guyana is one of the few countries in South America where the national language is no roman language. You speak there a wonderful creole language! I love the variety of languages ♥

I send love!
