Greetings friends!

There is a saying - "You cannot throw out the words from the song", which says that we would like to step over, jump over and move on some moments of life, but we need to go through it.

Another postage stamp in denomination of 3 FCFA - Central African CFA from a series of postage stamps Fishes (1961), issued in Congo, Republic (Brazzaville) in 1961, is like two drops of water similar to a postage stamp with denomination of 0.5 FCFA. The only difference is the drops of lake and sea water, lol.

Imagine a situation when you decided to go on two excursions in one day and paid the expenses.

The cost of the first excursion was 0.5 FCFA. and the cost of the second is 3 FCFA.

And so, you get off the bus, the guide will take you to the museum building and give you a tour.

When the tour is over, you get on the bus waiting for new experiences and a new tour.

But, the bus goes around the block and drives up to the same museum, but from the opposite side.

The guide, as if nothing had happened, conducts the tour again. but with some changes.

Are you asking the guide why the second tour is six times more expensive than the first? To which, you are told that to memorize information in the reverse order. six times more difficult, something like that.

We cannot jump over this postage stamp, otherwise this series will not be complete.

This postage stamp features Rainbow Runner (Elagatis bipinnulatus).

There is one more change, the serial number in the Michel catalog has changed.

Let's take a look at this postage stamp.

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.
