The old town of Lijiang
Lijiang in the Yunnan Province of China has a history reaching back 800 years and once was an important trading centre. It is built facing a river from which a complex series of waterways and channels has been developed to supply every house. As a result there are plenty of bridges, 354 in all leading to the it being called the City of Bridges. Now it's on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
My card arrived with the following stamps:
Unfortunately the perforations don't show up well on the scan but the stamp on the left is diamond shaped (and upside down). The next ones arrived on a different card
I always find stamps from China are very attractive even though I rarely have any idea what they are showing.
This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"
