Proof positive from Flughafen Frankfurt - in the form of a "World Clock" - that it's (always) Five o'Clock some-where ...


The cute panda pictorial cancel honors the 40th anniversary of the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) branch in Germany.

http://wwf.panda.org/wwf_offices/germany/ ... WWF Germany was founded 31 March 1963



That very attractive stamp reads PORTA NIGRA TRIER, and was postmarked (best I can tell) 20031215 at BRIEFZENTRUM (mail center) 10.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porta_Nigra ... The Porta Nigra (Latin for black gate) is a large Roman city gate in Trier ... today the largest Roman city gate north of the Alps.

This is another reminder why I detest ization (here Germanization) of toponyms, especially Indian.

In the official state language Bangla which is widely spoken in Kolkata, Kal means black or ominous and Kutta is dog.
