CHAD - République du Tchad

Officially the Republic of Chad (Arabic: جمهورية تشاد‎ Jumhūrīyat Tshād; French: République du Tchad), is a landlocked country in Central Africa. It is bordered by Libya to the north,Sudan to the east, the Central African Republic to the south, Cameroon and Nigeria to the southwest and Niger to the west. It is the fifth largest country in Africa in terms of area.
Chad has several regions: a desert zone in the north, an arid Sahelian belt in the centre and a more fertile Sudanian Savanna zone in the south. Lake Chad, after which the country is named, is the largest wetland in Chad and the second-largest in Africa. N'Djamena, the capital, is the largest city. Chad is home to over 200 different ethnic and linguistic groups. Arabic and French are the official languages.

These  beautiful covers from Chad sent by my Chinese friend Zhang Fan with the help of his contact working in Chad. Unfortunately they forgot to send as registered mail. The covers posted on December 27, 2016 and I received in my hands on January 16, 2017. Thank You dear friend for the great covers.
