This is a blog of my personal stamps and covers collection. I am an avid collector of postage stamps, miniature sheets, FDCs and covers addressed to me from across the world, an accumulator and hoarder of stamps. It is my attempt here to show you all of my collection in the posts that I'll add and update regularly. I hope to add more to the collection in the process, interact with you other collectors out there and share thoughts and information about anything and everything related.

Covers - Burundi, Country #91
My first covers from Burundi. Both arrived the same day. The covers are perfect. Postmark shows that they were sent from Bujumbura, the capital city on the 8th of January 2014.
Burundi was established as an independent country on July 1, 1962. With Rwanda, it had been a UN trusteeship (Ruanda-Urundi) administered by Belgium. A military coup overthrew the monarchy November 28, 1966.
