600th Anniv of Zheng-He - Maxi Card

This maxi card is a total surprise from friend and member at, Mr. Ajeet Pal Singh, an Indian medical student studying in China. Thank you so much.

This maxi card along with stamp was issued in June 28, 2005 to commemorate 600 years of voyages of Admiral Zheng-He, a Hui Chinese mariner, explorer, diplomat and fleet admiral, who commanded voyages to Southeast Asia, South Asia, and East Africa, collectively referred to as the travels of "Eunuch Sanbao to the Western Ocean" or "Zheng He to the Western Ocean", from 1405 to 1433.

Now that I got mint set, miniature sheet, and maxi card, only the FDC is pending :-)
