#287 New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

River Road in Louisiana is considered to be the most famous section of the Great River Road in the United States of America. This fabled road extends for about 70 miles (110 km) from Baton Rouge to New Orleans as it runs next to the Mississippi River.

Dotted on both sides are famed plantations mostly built by planters in Greek style.

The view of our planet shows the Atlantic Ocean flanked by the Americas, Africa, and part of northern Europe. In the stamp art, the globe is isolated on a white background. The shape of the stamp is round. The text, which surrounds the image of Earth, includes the words “Global Forever.”
