Ayutthaya, Thailand

I got this card in the Different Countries RR from Thamonwan...I actually asked for this group myself, Macedonia vs Other Countries...its a nice feeling to actually feel as a 'host' of a group :)
Ive opened another one, Macedonia vs other European countries...and those cards should start arriving rather soon to...i got some awkward itch about RR's lately....esp. those Slavic related groups...i feel like joining another one...there is an ongoing Different Slavic Countries group...i just fear people are gonna get sick and tired of my Macedonian cards :)

Back to the more than happy and thankful when people actually send me something they know i collect and i will like and we talk about the UNESCO....
Ayutthaya city is the capital of the Ayutthaya province in Thailand. The city was founded in 1350 by King U-Thong who came here to escape a small pox outbreak in Lop Buri and proclaimed it the capital of his kingdom.  In 1767 the city was destroyed by the Burmese army and the ruins of the old city now form the Ayutthata Historical Park which is recognized internationally as a  UNESCO whs.

The stamp is from a 2007 issue of a sheet of 10 stamps illustrating famous beaches and tourist destinations in Thailand.
Thamonwan, thanks a LOT! :)

I've also received a card frm Ayutthaya from Thamonwan :)

I think people on the forum won't get sick and tired of Macedonian cards ;) You know, Macedonia is not Finland, you're lucky to live in a "hard to get" country :D And I don't think people get sick or tired even of Finnish cards, so there's no need to worry :)
