SENEGAL - République du Sénégal

Officially the Republic of Senegal (French: République du Sénégal , is a country in West Africa. Senegal's economical and political capital is Dakar. It is the westernmost country in the mainland of the Old World, or Eurafrasia, and owes its name to the Sénégal River, which borders it to the east and north. The name "Senegal" comes from the Wolof "Sunuu Gaal," which means "Our Boat." Senegal covers a land area of almost 197,000 square kilometres (76,000 sq mi) and has an estimated population of about 13 million. The climate is Sahelian, but there is a rainy season.

Registered Airmail cover sent b y my good friend Holger during his vacation in Senegal in January 2016. Senegal postal service is pretty good. He said the staff were very cooperative, so he could postmark himself in a perfect way. The covers posted on January 11, 2016 and I received them on January 24, 2015. thank You very much Holger for the big help.

These beautiful covers sent by my good friend Holger during his vacation in Senegal and Guinee. His experience in Senegal post was very nice and he said they allowed to prepare and affix postmark himself perfectly. They use UPU label, so I am very happy when I got Registered airmail covers with UPU label. The cover sent on January 11, 2016 and I received on January 24, 2016. Thank You Holger for the dedicated work for philatelists.
