Illustrates the other international language "IDO"

The beehive is an international icon for "savings"
(or collecting) hence the Chicago stamp club icon.

Melilla
is a 12.3 square kilometres (4.7 sq mi) autonomous city of Spain and an exclave on the north coast of Morocco. Melilla, along with the Spanish exclave Ceuta, is one of the two Spanish territories located in mainland Africa. It was regarded as a part of Mlaga province prior to 14 March 1995, when the city's Statute of Autonomy was passed.



Melilla was a free port before Spain joined the European Union. As of 2008 it has a population of 73,460. Its population consists of Christians, Muslims (chiefly Riffians), and small minorities of Jews. Both Spanish and Tarifit are widely spoken. Spanish is the only official language, while there have been calls to recognise Tamazight, a standarized version of all Berber languages official in Morocco, as well.


Found this today. Been there when I lived in Oran, Algerie. Used to go there to buy wodka and rum which we 'imported' in waterbottles.

Here is an interesting item. A passport stamp...

Western honey bee or European honey bee (Apis mellifica). Original name Apis mellifera meaning "honey-bearing bee" was coined by Linnaeus who later realised that bees do not bear honey, but nectar, & tried to correct it to Apis mellifica. However the older name has precedence. (Wikipedia)
