Cover from Belarus no. 4
A new letter received today from Raman in Belarus, with the complete set of two stamps in the EUROPA project from 2004 when "Vacation" was the theme (stamps were issued on 4 May 2004, with a print-run of 120,000). I find them very pretty. One shows a man who is mushrooming, the other a man gone fishing, both presumably favourite pastimes in Belarus (and here in the Czech Republic too - mushrooming is one of the top summer activities for majority of the locals:-). The pictorial envelope from 2008 agitates against smoking with a slogan "Young ecologists against smoking". Thank you!
