The Kingdom of Lesotho (Sotho: 'Muso oa Lesotho), is an enclaved, landlocked country in southern Africa completely surrounded by South Africa. It is just over 30,000 km2 (11,583 sq mi) in size and has a population slightly over two million. Its capital and largest city is Maseru. Lesotho is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. The name Lesotho translates roughly into the land of the people who speak Sesotho. Lesotho previously knows as Basutoland, It gained independence in 1996, changed the name to Kingdom of Lesotho.
These two beautiful registered airmail covers sent by my good friend Julius from Maseru, the capital city of Lesotho. Lesotho stamps are very popular because of its large variety of flora and fauna issues. I was very happy when it came with my favorite blue UPU label with the logo. I specially instructed him to get affixed the label on front side of the cover. Usually they affix small barcode on front side and the large upper part affix on the backside. It spoils the beauty of the cover. The covers posted on Nov 25, 2015 and I received on December 22,2015. Thank You Julius for the great work from the rare country.
