Space Mail from U.A.E. to the ISS.

Soyuz TMA-16 up-to-the station letter.
 
 
This letter was written at the Central Post Office in Dubai, U.A.E on August 25, 2009.
It was addressed to Russian cosmonaut Roman Romanenko to the International Space Station. On October 2, 2009 the letter was delivered to the addressee by the Russian Soyuz TMA-16 spacecraft.
Aboard the station the letter was cancelled with all proper board seals, including the official ISS board post mark dated October 2, 2009, the day when Soyuz TMA-16 docked to the ISS.

The other letter written at the Central Post Office in Dubai, U.A.E on August 25, 2009 and addressed to Russian cosmonaut Roman Romanenko was sent to Houston, USA.
Being delivered to Houston, the letter was handed over to the crew of American Space Shuttle (STS-129) flight. The Shuttle’s crew delivered the letter to the addressee.
Aboard the station the letter was cancelled with all proper board seals, including the official ISS board post mark dated November 18, 2009, the day when American Space Shuttle (STS-129 flight) docked to the ISS.

In my collection there is a flown cover with an UAE postage stamp.
First this cover was cancelled in South Africa, at Seychelles and in United Arab Emirates. Than this cover was delivered to the Russian "Mir” space station by the "Progress M-15” unmanned supply spacecraft.
Aboard the station Russian cosmonauts A.Solovjov and S.Avdeev cancelled the cover with all "Mir” board seals, including board post mark dated October 29, 1992, the day when Progress M-15 docked to the MIR space station.
Perhaps it was for the first time when UAE postage stamps traveled in space.
