The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is a federal republic located on the northern coast of South America. It is bordered by Colombia on the west, Brazil on the south, Guyana on the east, and the islands of Trinidad and Tobago to the north-west. Venezuela is considered a state with extremely high biodiversity, with habitats ranging from the Andes Mountains in the west to the Amazon Basin rain-forest in the south, via extensive llanos plains and Caribbean coast in the center and the Orinoco River Delta in the east. Since the discovery of oil in the early 20th century, Venezuela has the world's largest oil reserves and has been one of the world's leading exporters of oil. Previously an underdeveloped exporter of agricultural commodities such as coffee and cocoa, oil quickly came to dominate exports and government revenues. In 2015, Venezuela had the world's highest inflation rate with the rate surpassing 100%, becoming the highest in the country's history.
Getting a cover from Venezuela is requires patience because it take min 4 months to be delivered into outer world. Because of economic crisis majority of international mail exchanges not working, but luckily with India is OK even it take minimum 6 months to reach here. My good friend J.Moret sent me these two covers with my favorite blue UPU barcode label. He is a thematic stamp collector too. Thank You very much Moret for the rare and nice covers from venezuela.
