Blue Lagoon Lighthouse, São Tomé e Príncipe

Farol da Lagoa Azul (Blue Lagoon Lighthouse) is located at the north coast of the island of São Tomé.
São Tomé is one of the islands in the Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe, and of the Republic’s total area of 1001 km², takes up 854 km² of this. It is located about 300 kilometres west of Gabon in the Gulf of Guinea.

The back of the postcard is almost a postcard in itself, covered almost entirely with the minisheet and the two butterfly stamps.

This postcard travelled almost 5 months to reach its destination. Well, Sao Tome is far away, but….. there is another reason. Our local mailman decided not to deliver all of the mail, but save some in his garage. He was caught recently and about a week ago I found appr. 60 postcards in my mailbox. My missing postcards since 2011!
