I got this postcard from Sameer of India. The picture on this postcard is the famous Taj Mahal, a mausoleum located in Agra India.
Taj Mahal is one of the most recognizable structures in the world. It was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. It is widely considered as one of the most beautiful buildings in the world and stands as a symbol of eternal love.
Thank you Sameer for your beautiful Taj Mahal postcard. Ohh, I really wanna visit India!
I got a postcard from Estonia, yeaayyy :) and I got this postcard from Janek. Thanks Janek for the beautiful traditional costumes postcard of Estonia.
Estonia traditional costumes look so nice to me. They are so eye-catching because of the colourful nuances and seem so comfortable to wear. The traditional costumes of this country are varied quite widely and it happens because Estonia has so many regions.
Even though traditional costumes change over time, these traditional costumes of Estonia have passed down through the generations and are seen today in Estonia and elsewhere in the world where Estonians live and gather for small and large festivities.
From the postcard, you can see couple of traditional costumes of Estonia and its regions.
Thanks Sameer for sending me a very eye-catching cover. Really love it. And many thanks for the miniature sheet on greetings that u have put on the cover, also for the beautiful Comptroller-and-Auditor-General-of-India stamp. Not to forget the postcard with picture of Stone Chariot :)
Stone chariot is a construction located in Vittala Temple in Hampi, India. The chariot was built by joining many giant granite blocks. In front of the chariot, there are elephants. These elephants look like pulling the chariot. Overall, the carvings on this stone chariot construction are so breathtaking. Again, thanks Sameer for enclosing this postcard on your full colour cover.
Thanks a bunch Vicky, for sending me this beautiful picture of Rostov and also for sticking those awesome stamps on the postcard. And anyway, this is the first postcard I got but the second one of all post things.
This cover is the first for me. It was sent by Hubei of China. I was so happy at that time even the cover was a lil bit broken but never mind, the cover still made my day and the stamps are awesome. Thanks a truck load Hubei.
Hubei also enclosed a new issue bulletin no 17 year 2010. You can see the picture above.
