Lovely letters & postcards for Maryam

All the lovely letters and postcards from all around the world sent to Maryam

#244 Cover and Postcard from Thailand

Another cover from Thailand sent by my friend, Nina R. in exchange for Titanic cover arranged by Nice Cover Circuit in postcrossing forum.

This time Nina used an airmail cover. On the cover, Nina affixed four Portugal-Thailand joint issue stamps to commemorate 500 years of diplomatic relationship between the two countries. These stamps were issued on 20 July 2011. All four stamps are very beautiful. I really like stamps that show historical events. On the left side, Nina affixed three stamps to make up the postage rate. The postmark date is 30 April 2012, and the location is Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya – the historical capital of Thailand.

Inside is a postcard that shows Wat Chai Wattanaram Temple in Ayutthaya. Nina explained that Ayutthaya was the capital of Thailand around 1500s when Portugal visited it and established diplomatic relationship. Thanks a lot Nina for the gorgeous cover and nice postcard!
