The first batch of postcards

Well, we have released a whole bunch of postcards into the wild. They arrived at the Bamako Post Office early this morning after a convoluted journey through the north of Mali. 

The clerk at the Timbuktu Post Office was quite confused when Ali showed up with a stack of postcards (this post office doesn't see much activity these days), but he quickly jumped into action. The two of them went through the postcards one by one to determine the postage and to put the Tombouctou stamp on them. 

After more orders rolled in over the weekend, Ali...

Jour J

Postcards are printed. Stamps are ready. The clerk at the Timbuktu Post Office has plenty of ink. Let's see what happens!
