SAUDI ARABIA

Officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), is an Arab state in Western Asia constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula. With a land area of approximately 2,150,000 km2(830,000 sq mi), Saudi Arabia is geographically the second-largest state in the Arab world after Algeria. Saudi Arabia is bordered by Jordan and Iraq to the north, Kuwait to the northeast, QatarBahrain, and the United Arab Emirates to the east, Oman to the southeast, and Yemen to the south. It is the only nation with both a Red Sea coast and a Persian Gulf coast, and most of its terrain consists of arid inhospitable desert or barren land forms.

This is my first airmail cover from Saudi Arabia, which is sent by Mubarak from Riyadh. He specially requested for perfect postmark from Saudi Philatelic Bureau in Riyadh. The cover posted on March 31, 2014 and I received on 20 April 2014. Thank You Mubarak for the perfect cover.
