First Postcard from Vietnam

This postcard was sent on 21 October, thanks to Dao. It illustrates a rainy route leading to a sacred and a beautiful place known as "La Pagode Des Parfums". It is a complex of pagodas built in the mountain cliffs situated situated 60 km south-west of Hanoi, for about 2 hours drive. This area is the destination for Buddhist pilgrims during Vietnamese Buddhist festival which is the 6th lunar month in the first 15 of the third lunar month. In times of celebration, it can receive up to 30,000 visitors per day.
