Sakha woman

I bought this eye-catching card for no other reason than it was eye-catching.  I had to look up where in the world Sakha might be and it turns out to be in the north east of Russia.  It is also known as Yakutia.

It is the largest official region in the world, larger even than Western Australia and only slightly smaller than India, yet its population is under 1 million.  It is one of the most economically important regions of Russia

  1. wow informative... I never know about that too...

  2. Amazing, makes you want to keep gazing at it.

  3. Wow, it looks like Sakha must be one of the most extreme places to live on the continent. I can't believe it is bigger than Australia, the mind boggles!

    This is a very pretty postcard! She looks so lovely. It looks like they are more influenced by Asian than Russian influences.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
