I have had to revert to a country name this week by choosing Yugoslavia for one of my stamps.
|Yugoslavia – December 1951|
The country broke up in 1992 and the area has had a turbulent history since.
Another country that has seen major changes in my lifetime is –
|China – 6 January 1949|
The gentleman on the stamp is Dr Sun Yat-sen, once leader of the Chinese National Party and known as the father of modern China. He served as the first provisional president of the Republic of China in 1911/1912 and as defacto ruler 1923-1925.
I have never had the chance to visit any of the National Parks in the USA but here is one that is known worldwide.
|USA – 24 February 2006
Yosemite National Park
