In: from Kazachstan
This beautiful postcard I received from Assel from Kazachstan. The illustration has been made by Svetlana Popova.
On the back nice stamps, and I learn to say 'Hello' in more languages.
And do you notice the tulips on the round stamp? My country, the Netherlands, is said to be a land of the tulips. However, tulips don't originate from our low country. Their origin is in.. the mountains of Kazachstan! Via Persia, China, Turkey and Antwerp the first tulip finally reached the Netherlands in the end of the 16th century.
Thank you very much, Assel!
