Saint Nazaire, France

Stamp Day in France was held October 8-9 in 86 cities. One of the stamps issued for Stamp Day this year was the "Dance" theme stamp on the right, commemorating the Charleston. This cover came to me from Saint Nazaire: a city in Western France at the mouth of the Loire River. Merci François!

Brazil Rio 2016 - Our Stamps

Another set of Olympic and Paralympic stamps from Brazil. They are from a sheet of 16 that feature designs by contest winners. The contestants were adults and children and I believe the theme was Olympic spirit.
