postcard perfect: cow-drawn native cart, philippines

postcards, souvenirs, browns

When I was a little kid, this is one of my favorite roadside attraction ~ a car-drawn cart by a native merchant peddling native crafts normally made of wood + bamboo. I particularly liked those little chairs that we call in our vernacular as bangkitos which my mum normally used while doing the laundry. Nowadays, I rarely see these carts, that is why it delighted me to spot one in the neighborhood a few weeks back. I will be sure to show it to my little man the next time it comes around.

This particular postcard was sent to me by fellow Postcrossing Enthusiast member, Edge, + he wrote

Mabuhay, kabayan! Here’s the card that you requested for the swap. May it find its way to you in no time. Have a great day!

It did find its way to me in no time + it sure did make my day, too! Thanks! 🙂

This is my share for this week’s Postcard Perfect + thought the brown native crafts also deserve a spot at Thursday Brownies
