Wow.. Today, I received my first postcard sent from Samoa! Samoa is known as Western Samoa or Independent Samoa to differentiate her from the American Samoa. This extra long size beautiful postcard was postmarked on August 27, 2009 and arrived in Penang on September 9, 2009. Nice stamp of Year of Tourism, $3. Thanks so much to Phil and Marge who also mailed me two postcards from American Samoa.
