Aerogrammes from South Georgia, postcards from Antarctica… present reality of our postbox in Okayama from an intrepid traveler nephew / distiller
Another postcard bonanza (“bonanza” used again for pal in Dubai) from such remote areas and the ghost of Shackleton)
Ergo: assorted British Overseas territories (disputed) Falkland Islands, South Georgia & South Sandwich Islands, and Argentina on the way to Antartica.
Have some geography fun and track down these locations on a map and follow along the rambles of a fine Son of Vancouver.
Bonus: The Weakerthans sing about Shakleton (the explorer who’s influential book is pictured upon the black/white card) in Our Retired Explorer (Dines with Michel Foucault in Paris, 1961)
What a postal bonanza of late!￼
Dispatches from Budapest, Nozawa onsen, Connecticut,￼ Vancouver, Valencia + Kanazawa’s D. T. Suzuki museum added to say “wonderful” (which is what i think of these treats).
Note: There was also a jet black envelope which is beyond your security clearance… and a box of new curtains which is purely practical and just happened to be delivered.
Also some black pepper but that’s a whole other story.￼
