Far from complete, but a nice teaser from all over Africa.

First stop is in the North, Egypt :<
U.A.R. : United Arab Republic

to the West, a small island formerly under Portuguese authority
All the way down there's another portuguese colony, Angola.
same style of stamps :
Still at the western side, but again a bit up north there's Liberia and Guinea
