MOZAMBIQUE

Officially the Republic of Mozambique (PortugueseMoçambique or República de Moçambique), is a country in Southeast Africa bordered by the Indian Ocean to the east, Tanzania to the north, Malawi and Zambia to the northwest, Zimbabwe to the west, and Swaziland and South Africa to the southwest. It is separated from Madagascar by the Mozambique Channel to the east. The capital and largest city is Maputo (known as "Lourenço Marques" before independence). The only official language of Mozambique is Portuguese, which is spoken mostly as a second language by about half of the population. Common native languages include SwahiliMakhuwa and Sena.


These two beautiful covers sent by my good friend Carlos from Maputo. The covers posted on June 26,2016 and I received on July 04, 2016. Mozambique accept stamps on covers which bought from their post office only, Other stamps just considered as collectibles. so he affixed extra stamps which bought from the post office. Thank You Carlos for the big help.
