Harvest time, Lesotho


My first postcard from Lesotho comes from Julius. ๐Ÿ™‚ I just love that type of postcards – the ones that show something from the daily/real life in the country. ๐Ÿ™‚


Lesotho, officially the Kingdom of Lesotho, is a landlocked country completely surrounded by South Africa. It is just over 30,000 km2 in size and has a population slightly over two million. Its capital and largest city is Maseru. Lesotho is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. The name Lesotho translates roughly into the land of the people who speak Sotho. About 40% of the population lives below the international poverty line of US $1.25 a day.
