WATER VILLAGE
Just a nice stamp to look at today, nothing special, just a beautiful design and I like the colour scheme of this particular value too.

The stamp depicts a "View on Brunei River". Brunei River is well known for its Kampong Ayer or Water Village, with all houses built in stilts in the water. Apparently there are over 4200 buildings and the village has existed for over 1300 years. During its history it has always been an important trade centre. So there!
