Haha thanks xD. Let's start.
No rare destinations today. Hong Kong would be the least common for today. Zak, did you been there?

He had to say that, 'cause there's a strict communist regime in China. Maybe he was afraid of being arrested because of a non suitable comment. :D

Today:

Ahmedabad, India (population 5,500,000)
Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic (population 550,000)
Guangzhou, China (Cantón in spanish pop. 11,000,000)

About Ahmedabad it was surprising to don't know about a 5 million people city. Only I can deduce it's a western Indian city because the Arabic name :D. Anyway this deduction is relative because Bangladesh (or East Pakistan some decades before) is a Muslim country.

There are many huge cities I've never heard of (mainly in Asia).

Today: Romania!

This guy purchased some Hungarian stamps from Debrecen 1919-1920 but used by Romania. It seems they occupied the territory.

They are from the end of WWI and few months later. Did Romania occupied/invaded/obtained by compensation this terrritory? How did Hungary recovered it?

Wow this is interesting!

I'm sending a letter to Stockholm, Sweden and his last name was kinda curious. "Calbucura", it sounds like a Mapuche name (Mapuche is a Patagonian ethnic). Then I realized he bought an old postcard from Patagonia :D
So the southern native american blood now it's in Scandinavia :D
