Cover - Suriname, Country #83

Another first. This time it is from Suriname. The cover was sent from the capital city of Paramaribo on 20th Sep. 2013. I received it today, 07th Oct. 2013. Interestingly, the stamps on the cover are also my only and first stamps of the country.

Suriname is a country in northern South America. In 1667 it was captured by the Dutch, who governed Suriname as Dutch Guiana until 1954. The Dutch colony of Suriname became an integral part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands under the Constitution of 1954. It became an independent state November 25, 1975.
