Cartography cover from Bulgaria

Another great cover from Bulgaria, from Lilia:-) Received at the end of December and sent on 18 December 2008 from Sofia (zip 1900).

The miniature sheet of 1 lev was issued on 28 February 2006, with a print-run of 16,000, and shows a golden sextant on the background of some Antartic islands. It is dedicated to the 10 years of Bulgarian Antartic cartography... and I love it. Pity again that here in the Czech Republic, and in many other places, souvenir sheets are so expensive. This Bulgarian one corresponds exactly to the tariff for sending light letters abroad.
