South Africa

Union Buildings in Pretoria, South Africa form the official seat of the South African government and also house the offices of the President of South Africa. See here framed by flowering jacaranda trees in early Summer. The first postcard from my Mum's holiday to southern Africa. 

Ouranosaurus, meaning “brave lizard” lived during the early Cretaceous period about 110 million years ago in Africa. At first I thought there was a offset printing mistake with the stamp, as the colours don't line up, but it turns out this dinosaur set was issued in 3D, requiring special glasses to align the colours and bring out the depth of the image.
