EGYPT ~Giza-Boat of the Sun~

Received cards from three Continents today! :-)
All so different but really interesting views... Amsterdam, the capital of Holland in Europe (a neighbouring country, we even speak the same language: dutch).
A beautiful historic artifact from Egypt a North African country and a UNESCO card from Indonesia a South Asian country!! And again all with such nice stamps...GREAT!!!

The boat on this card was discovered next to the largest of the pyramids of Giza, the one called Khufu. The boat is believed to have carried the body of the pharaoh Khufu on his last journey on earth before he was buried inside the pyramid.
