My First Cover From Chile!!!

Extremely delighted to receive this lovely cover posted from Lumaco, Chile! Many thanks to Pablo Guerra for offering to exchange!

The beautiful stamp franked on the top left corner belongs to the "UPAEP, National Festivals" series, issued on 09.08.2008.
The two $250 denomination stamps were issued on 17.08.2008 to commemorate the International Polar Year. An international Polar Year or IPY is a year or so during which many nations coordinate their Polar expeditions, observations and analyses. The third IPY has ended, having begun in 2007, and continued until 2009.
The three $20 stamps belong to a lovely set of 10 cute stamps, entitled "Professions".
This cover was postmarked on 12 Nov 2011 in Antofagasta, a port city in northern Chile and took 17 days to reach me! Hope that my cover will reach Chile soon!
