Bahrain: Tree of Life

Yesterday I got eight postcards including two from Bahrain.

One of the cards from Bahrain shows the Shajarat-al-Hayat, the Tree of Life. The Tree of Life is a tree in the middle of the desert. It is believed to be 400 years old, but it is still a mystery from where it get its water. It is said to be a wonder of nature and is today a popular tourist attraction.


Stamps:
King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa (from set of sixteen) (issued 15-07-2002)
Charity Stamp (issued 2009 (?))


Thank You very much Edwin!
