Antofagasta, Chile

From the Chilean city of Antofagasta: La Perla del Norte. It's a coastal city that lies on the edge of the Atacama Desert which is the worlds driest desert. The Tropic of Capricorn cuts through Chile just north of the city. The stamp on the right commemorates the 125th anniversary of the Chilean philatelic society.

Chile is actually one of the countries that I would like to visit in my bucket list. I’ve been looking at the postage stamps that you have and at the same time consulted the online stamp catalogue I frequently visit. I learned that the 125th Anniversary of the Philatelic Society of Chile was released on March 18 of this year. However, some of the stamps that you have here are not in their Chile 2014 catalogue which I will report so that they can at least keep their stamp collection complete, at least for the 2014 releases.
