It has been 10 days since ‘the real summer’ arrived.  The indoor temperature is gradually rising – but last night we had a nice cool breeze and I felt refreshed as if I am dipping myself in the cool water.

This stamp from Niger is showing the water surface as the central horizon and depictes above and below the water with two different green colours.  An African Manatee looks cool and content.

暑い日が10日つづき、冷房のない室内の気温は日増しに上がっています。大きなバケツを買って冷水に足でも浸さないと仕事の能率下がる〜、と思った昨日ですが、夜には涼しい風が吹いて気温が少し下がったようです。

このニジェールからのさわやかな切手は、真ん中が喫水線で区切られ、水中と水上の世界が2色の緑で描き分けられている面白い構成です。水の中で涼しそうなマナティーが、ちょっとうらやましい。
