Cover from Argentina
An airmail envelope received on 13 February 2008 after 9 days of travel from the Argentinian city of Bahía Blanca, post-office branch no. 2. (the postmark includes even the telephone number 4522376).
The single stamp of 4 pesos shows the 121-metre-long icebreaker A.R.A Almirante Irízar, currently out of service due to a large fire that broke on board in 2007. The Finnish-made ship usually operated on routes between Argentina and Antarctica.
