Northern Pintail

Congo, Republic of (1991)
22nd May, 2008. Brazzaville

A very common migratory bird can be observe in Eurasia and North America, sometimes can be seen in wetlands near equator but no record in Republic of Congo. The postcard shown a pair of Pintail which are male and female separately, seems look very different than the stamp, it is because male in winter will change their feathers.

This request I sent on January of 2008 to Brazzaville and come back on June, I surprise post office sent it by registered mail with French regarding letter.

Universidade de Coimbra, Coimbra

Portugal (2007)
19th December, 2008. Universidad, Coimbra

I haven't plan visit Coimbra in this trip. When I arranging the schedule in Porto, I found that the way from Porto to Lisbon via Aveiro and Coimbra is cheaper than go Porto to Lisbon directly. So I decided visit these two places. I can't forget these cities - Estromez, Aveiro and Coimbra are relax enough. They are good places for holiday.

Templo romano de Évora, Évora

Portugal (2007)
14th June, 2007. Évora

A day trip to Évora. The place full of tourists, most of them are European and not easy to find Asian. Afterward I found two Japanese in Estromez.

14th June, 2007. Sintra

Portugal (2007)

The castle built on the top of the hill, a colourful castle and interesting place. I were quite stupid to climb up the hill to save bus fare. An experience of hiking in Portugal.
