A lovely cover from Vietnam!

Although Vietnam is only a 2-hour flight from Singapore, I seldom get to receive mail from this former French colony. Here I am sharing with you my only second Vietnamese cover, courtesy of Mr. Nguyen Duong Tri Thuc. Thank you so much!

The lovely 5 se-tenant stamps franked on this cover were issued on 3rd March 2009 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the border guard forces and the 20th anniversary of the All People’s Border Guard Day.

This cover was postmarked on 2nd August 2009 in Bien Hoa, a city in Dong Nai province, Vietnam, about 32 km east of Ho Chi Minh City and took 11 days to travel an estimated distance of 1,117kms to reach me.
