My first cover from Guatemala ...

Many thanks David Aldana for this nice registered cover sent from Ciudad de Guatemala or Guatemala City, the capital and largest city of the Republic of Guatemala. It is also the capital city of the local Guatemala Department and the largest city in Central America. The registered cover took 21 days to reach Singapore.

The cover was franked with stamps from the issue of "Aves de Guatemala" (Birds of Guatemala) which was issued on 14 Nov 2008, with a complete set of 4 stamps.
