Travel the World of Postage Stamps - Development of fishing industry - Angler, Skipjack (Katsuwonus pelamis) - Cuba 1975 - Michel Cuba 2030 - my hobby.


Greetings friends!

I congratulate you on the first day of autumn.

For many parents, this is the beginning of new troubles.

Children went to school, these are new experiences.

As a rule, in our time, children, getting surrounded by their peers, sometimes absorb not what they need.

But, any child wants to show his superiority over his peers.

Computer games, this is childish babble, before collecting postage stamps that will immerse your child in the world of finance, history, culture of the world, introduce him to nature, art, this knowledge, will make your child a cut above his peers, just explain this to your child and introduce him to an interesting hobby.

Of course. everyone has their own recipe for raising children, but this one is not the worst, lol.

I was thinking where we were going today and heard the whistle of the wind outside the window.

A hurricane is coming.

I remembered Forrest Gump and his shrimp boat that had been left at sea during the storm.

All the fishing vessels that hid from the hurricane in the harbor were wrecked and washed ashore, only the ship of Forrest Gump survived, which made his first millions. His ship became the only vessel that could continue to fish for shrimp.

Sometimes, it's worth going against the storm and fighting it rather than hiding.

And this gave me the direction for the next journey.

We will travel to 1975, on the coast of the island of Cuba, and see a series of Development of fishing industry stamps that will tell us about the development of the fishing fleet and the fish that these fleets have caught.

On the first postage stamp, which received a denomination of 1 ¢ - Cuban centavo, we see Angler, Skipjack (Katsuwonus pelamis).

I think that any fisherman would dream of pulling such a fish out of the water, especially since Skipjack , not the largest representative of the tuna family, 35 kilograms, is its maximum weight.

This fish is one of the most important ingredients in Japanese cuisine when ordering your sushi, think of this postage stamp lol.

For my publications, I do not use stock photographs, it is fundamentally important for me to use photographs that I have made with my own hands for publication and I can name them - authorial work.
