Radio Brasil Central* QSL, Postcards & Stamps

Radio Brasil Central*, transmitting from Goiania (Brazil), followed up with a paper QSL of their previous confirmation. It and three postcards representative of Brazil arrived in an envelope covered with colourful Brazilian stamps. If you are into philately -- and I am, more or less -- then this is another reason why communication abroad is so fascinating. While the practice is not so common nowadays, on the rare occasion some truly exotic stamps appear on QSLs and letters from international broadcasters.
