Quang Tri, Viet Nam

First it was Kazakhstan, and now it is Viet Nam, and I get to have cards from these two rare places thanks to dear Jo mainly!

And this time she chose a lovely card from my favourites, which shows a rainy day at the market in Quang Tri.
This is a city in central Vietnam, the major city of Quang Trí Province, which lies near the Demilitarized Zone, an area that separated North and South Vietnam after Vietnam was partitioned at the end of the First Indochina War in 1954. People living here are said to be poor unfortunately.

But this card is just too beautiful to me, with all these people wearing the same hats and with these different nice colourful clothes on , just creates some lovely and unique atmosphere.
Curious to know what exactly they are selling at this market...I am pretty much convinced that even though im rather picky when it comes to food, here I would love to try the most unusual stuff they might be long as its not bugs and crickets and such...

The stamp on the right is from a set of 4 issued in 2009, representing flowers, while the left one shows a carp and is from a set of 3 fish stamps issued in 2008.

прекрас картичка. Како чадорчиња...;)

У виетнам јадат многу повеќе бубачки од северна кина (пекинг, тиенџин..). Ама шо да прават, кога ги има у изобилство..;))))

That's such a lovely, colourful card! I love postcards from Vietnam :)
