Cover from Egypt

I’ve had a very busy weekend. I just can not believe that two days have already passed and that it’s time again to go to work… My weekend was also busy from a philatelic point of view. On Saturday I had to go to the post office to retrieve 5 registered letters coming from various places, and containing interesting stamps on and inside the cover. I’m going to show you all that in the coming days.
For today, a cover that I received few days/weeks ago. It comes from Egypt. I realized that this is the first time I get a cover from Egypt. So I’m happy to have this new addition to my collection.
I think the stamps are very representative of the stamps issued by Egypt these last years. I did not find much information about them, except on the one that is on the left corner. It was issued on the 16th of April 2006 and is a tribute to Gamal Hemdan an Egyptian geographer. All the other stamps are also from 2006 but I could not find anything on them yet. The postmarks are hard to read, but the overall condition of the cover is pretty good.
