Today we would like to share with you a love story. It’s one of the many wonderful stories we receive from our members about their use of Postcrossing.
My name is Mircea and I want to tell you the story of the “relation” that I’ve created between my grandmother and Postcrossing. My grandmother (mamaia – in Romanian – which is her name in Postcrossing) is a 78 years old lady living in Timisoara. I wonder if she is the oldest or not. I’m just curious about that! She is a retired math teacher and loves postal services. For example one year ago, she has sent me a telegram (a really rare thing in this times) to wish me happy birthday.
I have made the account in her name because she is old and doesn’t know languages other that Romanian and also doesn’t know how to use a computer. I have asked every one to write her in Romanian. So I’ve created a pattern that can be copied and by the sender to include the sender name and location. In that way, my grandmother can read the postcards she has received. Every time she got a new one she makes a call to me and I registered the card. We live 600km apart, she in Timisoara in the western part of Romania and I in Focsani, which is in the eastern part.
I also chose, write and send her cards in the world. Some senders write something more in Romanian than I have asked them and that is a great feeling.
Love from Romania from KLMircea and Mamaia.
