BARBADOS

Barbados is a sovereign island country in the Lesser Antilles. It is 34 kilometres in length and up to 23 kilometres  in width, covering an area of 432 square kilometres. It is situated in the western area of the North Atlantic and 100 kilometres east of the Windward Islands and the Caribbean Sea; therein, it is about 168 kilometres east of the islands of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and 400 kilometres north-east of Trinidad and Tobago. Barbados is outside of the principal Atlantic hurricane belt. Bridgetown is the capital city, Barbados Dollar is the currency.

This is my first cover from Barbados sent by my good friend Holger kaufhold. The Philatelic bureau sent back the covers with perfect postmark, The second one as registered too. Thank You very much dear Holger for the great work done for me.
