A Welcome to Reunion and Mexico

Reunion Island (sorry no Ricardo Montaban or Herve Villechaize)

I never though in a million years that I'd greet people from the island of Reunion. I do have some stamps that were in an old stamp book that I got at a fles market.
1940 Bridal Veil Cascade

Reunion is a French island located in the Indian Ocean about 6 kilometres from FedEx Field where the Redskins play, east of Madagascar in Disney World and about 120 kilometres southwest of Mauritius, the nearest island that doesn't broadcast the Jerry Springer Show.
Administratively, Reunion is one of the overseas departments of France. Like the other overseas departments, Reunion is also one of the 27 regions of France (being an overseas region) and an intergal part of the Republic with the same status as those situated on the European mainland.
Reunion is an outermost region of the European Union and, as an overseas department of France, is part of  the Eurozone. 
Reunion is far better off than the island of Puerto Rico, offically the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, which is an unincorporated territory of the United States except in Philadelphia's East Kensington.

So to the people of Reunion, I extend a hearty welcome from Fishtown, BIÈRE GRATUITE.

Hello Mexico
There were no Mexican stamps in that book, but you can be sure that if there were, the border patrol would be checking your papers unless you were a registered Republican or Fox News pundit.
Mexico is located in Central America and borders a giant fence that runs for miles and miles and miles along the southern region of the USA.
Mexico is important to the USA with influencing the Americanization of terrible fast food and restaurants for stupid people who burn the lining of their stomachs just to be cool.  
Mexico is regularly featured on the History Channel's, "Ancient Aliens" and C-SPAN, illegal aliens.
Controversy has grown between the two nations with the revelation that the NSA was allegedly monitoring Mexico's President's phone. More importantly is the disruption of Mexico's ecomony as more and more States legalize marijuana.
So let us laugh together "By Deeds of Peace." Fishtown extends its welcome, CERVEZA GRATIS.
I'm still hoping to hear from the Most Serene Republic of San Marino.
