Another card from Turkey sent by my dear postcard pal Mina from Turkey! This time she sent me a multiview showing two UNESCO World Heritage Sites - Pamukkale and Truva. Pamukkale, meaning "cotton castle" in Turkish, is a natural site in Denizli in southwestern Turkey. The city contains hot springs and travetines, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. Mina says it is forbidden to swim and sit there   now because since it damages the mineral terraces. And other World Heritage Site is Troy, in fact... Truva is just Turkish name for it. Mina says that card is a bit weird because these two sites are actually many kilometers apart from each other, but I agree with her that the card is quiet nice, with the wooden horse of Troy overlooking at the swimming people. 

The first stamps represents the Turkish bagels and the other one shows traditional oil wrestling! Thanks, Mina ;)
