Africa Orientale

I found this in some old stuff. The postcard dates from the Italian occupation of Abyssinia but was actually sent to me in 1959 when I was a 5 year old patient in a Swedish hospital recovering from an operation.The lady who sent it to me Ana Karin Elander had been a nurse in Ethiopia just after the war. For many years she worked in a leper colony in Tanzania and was a remarkable woman.
