This very nice cover from Myanmar was sent by Bo Bo, thank you! It was posted in Yangon on April 29 and arrived 0n May 16, 2014. (Maybe it took a bit longer, because it was “Missent to Thailand”…)
The cover is a FDC, which is entitled “A Nation-Wide Census”. It was issued on March 10, 2014 (in Burmese script: ၁၀-၃-၂၀၁၄).
The top left stamp was issued on March 30, 2011 (၃၀.၃.၂၀၁၁). The yellow stamp is part of a set that was issued in 1999. It commemorates the “Asian and Pacific Decade of Disabled Persons”.

Kevin sent me this nice airmail letter from Myanmar, thank you! It was posted in Yangon on January 20 and arrived on February 28, 2012. Due to the missending of the letter to Thailand (see blue cancel) the delivery took more than one month.
I find this cover very interesting although I hardly can tell something about it. I do not know where it was posted. I hardly could decipher the posting date. Does anybody know what the black cancel with added number “35” means?
It is funny, that my Burmese friend located Austria within Eastern Europe.
The back of the cover has attached eight stamps: seven à 5 kyat depicting the myanmar xylophone and one 50 kyat stamp depicting the shan pot drum.
