Private Swap - Laos

24juuli0036

Laos is a landlocked country in Southeast Asia. Its population was estimated to be 6.8 million in 2009. Laos became independent in 1954, with a constitutional monarchy under Sisavang Vong. Shortly after independence, a long civil war ended the monarchy, when the Communist Pathet Lao movement came to power in 1975.

Laos is a single-party socialist republic. The capital city is Vientiane. The official language is Lao. Most people are Lao with a significant proportion of indigenous religion as well. It is a rising power in electricity to neighboring countries such as Thailand, China and Vietnam and the economy is accelerating rapidly with the demands of its metals. (source)

  1. Glad my Laos card arrived. I bought it when I visited Vientiane, Laos in February 2011. Noticed that your Laos label does not appear on your country index on the right side of your webpage. Anyway, thanks for the nice swap. SL :)

  2. Laos doesn't appear because the card wasn't sent from Laos :) When I get my first stamped card from there, the label will appear too :)

    Thanks for your great card!
