Postcard business delivers new life to Timbuktu post office
Issued on: Modified:
Tourists no longer visit Timbuktu, the ancient city in northern Mali. But a small postcard business there has been growing. Out-of-work tourguides now earn money via a website called postcardsfromtimbuktu.com. It allows people anywhere in the world to send a stamped postcard from the famous desert city.
