For letter "F" -
Formerly a French colony, classical Western architectural style was left in some important buildings in Ho Chi Minh City. Thanks to the French best friend who once lived there for sending me these postcards below. I couldn't label these postcards as well as they were hand delivered to me.
In support of my postcards and stamps hobby, I received this Ho Chi Minh City Post Office postcard. The building was designed by Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, the same designer of the famous iron lattice tower in Champ de Mars.
He knows I am a big fan of Marie Curie, the first woman to win the Nobel Prize. A Polish and naturalized French physicist, her brilliance paved the way for my profession today -- physics in medicine. How appropriate that on the postcard above, I have a view of an entrance to a public high school named after her.
Ho Chi Minh is on the top three in my wishlist of cities to visit this year. Hopefully I could see these buildings in person real soon!
