Great Wall of China

A postcard of The Great Wall of China, from Taiwan, just arrived and it's so beautiful.
I hope one day I have the opportunity to visit it... Here it is:

 The stamp shows a Luscinia Calliope (Siberian Rubythroat).

Curiosity about Taiwan:
  •  The 1st contact between Europe and Taiwan was in 1544, when a Portuguese ship sighted the main island of Taiwan. At the time, and as the Portuguese sailors couldn't understand the language of the natives to ask for the place's name, they decided to call it "Ilha Formosa", which means "Beautiful Island".

Hope you like it!
