I am from YEMEN living in Egypt. I guess I will be the first member from Yemen :D .
I work in Egypt occasionally from time-to-time...digging up ancient pieces of a dead culture. Where about might you be at currently, if you don't mind me asking. I'm interested how the Covid-19 situation is effecting tourism. The number 1 source of income for the country.
And welcome!


This is really fascinating. Hope you can add some posts with photos in the future about your work. Best Regards :)

I am working as a doctor in Cairo. Of course, covid-19 affected the tourism industry and many hotels are almost empty. Maybe you could post some of your work as it sounds interesting.

I'm with ARCE & I'm the archivist (& team member) of KV-10 & KV-63 in Luxor. This post is for stamps, though I have 1000's of photos of the work. Tourism is the No. 1 industry of Egypt. The Ministry of Antiquities has painted a rather poor picture of the current situation & friends there have been somewhat frustrated (typical).
However, as a doctor there, I can imagine you must be busy.
Courtesy is contagious.

I am from Russia😊
I usually collect coins and banknotes, but when it comes to stamps with owls or postage stamps issued by fantastic, self-proclaimed, micronations and virtual states (Seborga, Lundy, Sealand, Hutt River, Wirtland and others), then this is what I need.

No, this is Veliky Novgorod, I am from Nizhni Novgorod

The name of both (Novgorod) can be translated as New City, Veliky - Great, Nizhni - Lower (located below the river or in the lower reaches)

Nizhny Novgorod Fair

Now an exhibition centre. Note the signage on either side of the main entrance, for a temporary exhibition:
РОССИЯ - МОЯ ИСТОРИЯ [Rossiya — moya istoriya] — Russia — My History
Nizhny Novgorod Fair: Нижегородская ярмарка (old name — Makaryev Fair) was a fair in Nizhny Novgorod held annually every July near Makaryev Monastery on the left bank of the Volga River from the mid-16th century to 1816. Following a massive fire in 1816, it was moved to Nizhny Novgorod, but for some decades thereafter it still was commonly referred to as Makaryev Fair. It attracted many foreign merchants from India, Iran, and Central Asia.

According to Durland, a journalist who visited the fair in 1905, the fair dates from "before the discovery of America." The fair was established by Muscovite princes to compete with, and draw commerce away from, a fair held since 1257, at Kazan, the Tartar capital. At the time Durland visited the fair, it consisted of 60 buildings, 2,500 bazaars and 8,000 exhibits, with goods for sale, along with a broad range of performances for the public.

This fair was a commerce centre to sell up to half the total production of export goods in Russia. The fair ceased in 1929. A society named Nizhegorodskaya yarmarka: Нижегородская ярмарка, Nizhny Novgorod Fair, was created in 1991 with its headquarters in the former main fair building. However, today it is not actually a fair, but an exhibition center. Located in the historical centre of Old Kanavino.

There is a train that takes you from one city to another

the main entrance leads exactly to this exhibition "Russia - my history", the entrance to the left leads into the space for events. There are several halls.

This is the Armorial Hall, which was the graduation place for the best students of my university.
