St Barnabas' Monastery, Salamis/Famagusta

Something about Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, please visit here. With the aid of postal system ”PTT" of Turkey, letters franked with its own stamps, can be delivered internationally, although the stamps are considered as “illegal”, according to the rules of UPU. I am really glad to receive one postcard sent from this territory, which shows St Barnabas' Monastery located in Famagusta. The stamp on the right shows the founder and former President Rauf Denktaş.  Many thanks to Filiz, who lives in Turkey and often visit this island to see her family there, much appreciated!
