Stamps from Ethiopia
I found this postcard among several others from Africa, the first I've seen illustrating stamps. It was sent in August 2008, but apparently inside an envelope because there is no address or stamp on the reverse. The message is clearly from an aid worker in Ethiopia, and sounds rather despairing.
"..we must have a new project agreement, otherwise we have to leave the country. It is so much more complicated here ... At the moment we have major team problems ... Sometimes only prayer keeps me here"
It must be a very special person who can work in a country with the problems they have.
This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"
