Hello,  just one more from Jamaica  -  I thought this worth showing.  The title is such a tease, maybe?.

Where is the Rio Grande?  Well I expect most would say Mexico or the USA as we all know our geography and that the Rio Grande is one of the principal rivers in the southwestern United States and in northern Mexico.   Probably well known because of the length of the river - 1,896 miles  and it originates in south-central Colorado and flows to the Gulf of Mexico 

Well, there is a Rio Grande also in Jamaica. It too is one of the longest rivers in Jamaica. It was named "Big River" by the Spanish, who controlled Jamaica in the 15th and 16th centuries. It is one of the many tourist attractions and is used mainly for rafting -  How long you ask,  Just about 20 miles. 😊

Enjoy your stamps and all they bring us.         Michael

and  with thanks to my friend at  British Commonwealth Album  here   -  and you might enjoy a visit to his online store  the Used Stamp Collector here.
