Well, i didnt really believe i was gonna make an update today, but i really need to keep my mind away from things, and i just dont know what to do with myself and i think that its better to post something...it will keep me distracted for a while and i also have a huge reason to do so, since i have received a new country in my mailbox today...GEORGIA!! With an enormous thank you to Khatuna! And not only she sent me a new country in my collection, but the way she did it is more than special...but i will get down to it later.
I know some of you know why my bad mood, and i wont annoy you with it now...i will do it during the following week though :) Just please, bear with me in the following days....
Apart from actually getting a new country, i received a new UNESCO as well...some cards just arrive on a day they most need to do so....i havent received mail for several days and today, after what had happened yesterday, i was on the verge to cry coz there was no mail today...but the postman came a bit late than usual, and cheered me up....with LOADS of mail :)
Mtskheta (which i honestly dont know how to pronounce) is the oldest town of Georgia and is located approximately 20 km northeast of Tbilisi (the capital) at the confluence of the Aragvi and Mtkvari rivers (ok, definitely if i ever go to Georgia, i would have trouble with pronouncing basic stuff...due the high number of consecutive consonants).
On the card you can see the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral (IV-XI century) and due to its historical significance and numerous ancient monuments, the "Historical Monuments of Mtskheta" became a UNESCO whs in 1994, where the Svetitskhoveli Cathedral is amongst the most significant monuments of Georgian Christian architecture, and are historically significant in the development of medieval architecture throughout the Caucasus.
My personal knowledge about Georgia? Apart from knowing the capital...it can equal to 'none'.
All of the stamps are just amazing...here you can see two stamps regarding the Olympic Games in Beijing in 2008 (i think that many countries have issued such stamps, including Macedonia).
The other stamp has been issued in the honour of Rabbi Abraam Khovels, who is considered as a spiritual and civic leader who lived in Georgia more than a century ago.
Again, Khatuna...thanks a real real lot!!
