CUBA

Officially the Republic of Cuba (Spanish República de Cuba ), is a country comprising the islands of Cuba, Isla de la Juventud and several archipelagos in the Caribbean Sea. The capital and largest city Havana is 365 km (227 mi) from MiamiFlorida, and geographically it is considered part of North America. Culturally, Cuba is considered part of Latin AmericaThe name Cuba comes from the Taíno language. The exact meaning of the name is unclear but it may be translated either as 'where fertile land is abundant' (cubao), or 'great place' (coabana). Authors who believe that Christopher Columbus was Portuguese state that Cuba was named by Columbus for the town of Cuba in the district of Beja in Portugal.


These beautiful covers sent by my very good friend Miroslava from Czhech republic, during her vacation trip in Cuba. She specially requested for postmarks and sent all covers as registered too with the help of her friend from US. The covers took a long time to reach in my hand. Miroslava posted these covers in January 2016, I received them in my hands on April 04, 2016. The postmark is really disappointed , she requested several times for clear postmark but lazy and irresponsible staff of Cuban Post didn't care. Thank You Miroslava for the perfect covers from Cuba.
 


These are some other covers also sent by Miroslava, arrived a little late.
