Sri Lanka: Turtles

Yesterday I received my first card from Sri Lanka. Officially the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and known from the beginning of British colonial rule until 1972 as Ceylon, is an island country in South Asia near south-east India. Sri Lanka has maritime borders with India to the northwest and the Maldives to the southwest. Its documented history spans 3,000 years, with evidence of pre-historic human settlements dating back to at least 125,000 years. Sri Lanka is a republic and a unitary state governed by a Semi-presidential system. The legislative capital, Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte, is a suburb of the commercial capital and largest city, Colombo.



Stamp:
Moonstones, Guardstones & Balustrades of Sri Lanka (from a set of six) - Issued: 12-12-2012


Many thanks to Ramona for this great card!
