Nice One from Belgium...

This special enveloppe was sent from Belgium on 11th August 2010 and reached Mauritius on August 17.  But what is more interesting is what is inside...

The set of 5 stamps on the left represents traditional games.  The 2 stamps in the middle were issued for the Journée du Timbre 1967 and 1966.  They both illustrate postmen delivering their mail.  Finally, the stamp on the far right portrays Paul-Emile Janson (1872-1944), a Belgian liberal politician who served as the 30th Prime Minister of Belgium in 1937-1938.
Thank you Thomas! ;-)
