Sri Lanka

Postcard of Asian elephant in Yala National Park in southeastern Sri Lanka. Established in 1900, it is the second-largest protected area in Sri Lanka and is an important wildlife habitat for the Sri Lankan subspecies of Asian elephant (Elephas maximus maximus), as well as large numbers of leopards and wetland birds.

Although I lived in Sri Lanka when I was young, I only have one other, rather unlovely, Sri Lanka card in the archives of my collection. Many thank to friend Lindsey, who was on holiday in Sri Lanka, for adding to the mix!

Stamp from the 2007 definitive series on constellations of the Zodiac. Depicted is Pisces (♓), the twelfth astrological sign in the Zodiac. Pisceans are thought to be reasonable, artistic, and quiet.
