My birthday is on December 31. I'd really appreciate if you can send me a letter on that day with a birthday greeting.

I am currently working in an IT company, but I can still manage to find some time to go to post office to send postcards and letters.
I like commercial aviation and I collect die cast airplanes. I also love to do travel photography and interact with different people and learn their culture.

#15 Cover and Stamps - Argentina (2010-10-22)

Thanks Agustin for the very nice cover and stamps from Argentina!

The cover has three kinds of stamps.

The first one on the left was issued last November 14, 2009 and the illustration is about National Children Drawing Contest on the theme “I Can Slow TB Down.”

The second set of stamps was issued last August 28. 2010 about Argentina’s Traditional Games -  Bowls and "Truco" – a very popular card game in the Americas. This issue has the Postal Union of the Americas, Spain and Portugal (UPAEP) logo in it.

The third stamp that was issued this year talks about the 200 years (bicentenary) celebration of May Revolution - 200 years of National Library. The May Revolution (Spanish: Revolución de Mayo) was a week-long series of revolutionary events that took place from May 18 to May 25, 1810, in Buenos Aires, capital of the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata, a colony of the Spanish Empire which included the present-day nations of Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay.

Set of stamps are also included inside:
