Rothera Research Station, British Antarctic Territory

From the British Antarctic Survey research station Rothera, located on the Antarctic Peninsula. Nothing very exciting. The back has the usual Rothera Station cachet with an outline of the Antarctic continent and a penguin in the middle.  This is the first time I've received a BAT cover with the "First Day of Issue" postmark.

I received this sometime last week. I can't be bothered to go out and check my mail every day because lately there just hasn't been that much mail coming in. So I'm not sure exactly when this was delivered, but it was last week.

Canada, Return to Sender

I mailed this to India on March 18. It made it to the South Central processing plant (M4L) in Toronto and was then returned to me: temporary suspension of postal service. I mailed other letters that day and they didn't come back. This one did. I'll have to hold on to it and try again when things get back to normal. Could be a while.
