Postcard from Thailand no. 2
A truly exotic (at least for me) postcard received yesterday from Bangkok. It shows a twilight view of the local Chinatown, very impressive!
The stamps are the complete series of World Enviroment Day stamps issued on 5 June 2008, urging people to take care of the Earth (print-run 1 million each). Of interest is also the postmark with the year 52, i.e. 2552, since the Buddhist calendar started with the birth of Buddha 543 earlier that the Christian one. Thank you, Apichati!
