Burkina Faso

Today I'm showing a cover from an African Country!
It's my 1st letter from Burkina Faso!

Do you know where it's located? It is surrounded by six countries: Mali to the north, Niger to the east, Benin to the south east, Togo and Ghana to the south, and Côte d'Ivoire to the south west.

Formerly called the Republic of Upper Volta. Independence from France came in 1960. You can see some pictures of the country at Helge's blog here.

The stamp on the cover was issued last year (2006) to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the EMS CHRONOPOST at BURKINA (short name for Burkina Faso).

EMS CHRONOPOST is really an universal service, isn't it?
