Hey! We are Dmitriy and Irina (or Dimka & Irish for short), we live in Karaganda, Kazakhstan.
32 y.o., translator/interpreter, English teacher. I like playing the guitar and bass, reading books and learning languages. I love board games and have a small (but growing) collection.
27 y.o., University teacher, PhD student, dolls collector. I love glitter and Japan, reading (my favorite authors are Dmitri Yemets and Erich Maria Remarque), making origami and watching anime. Also I am a very big fan of figure skating. ShibSibs and Nathan Chen forever in my heart ♥
I have a Chinese crested dog named Richie.
We would be glad to receive a postcard with a couple of sentences in your language, preferably with translation in English or Russian, of course. :)
It will be great if you write some cool fact about yourself or something funny.
We would especially like to receive the following cards:

but if you don't have any of these – you can send any card you want.
If you don't know what to write you might use these ideas:
- What's your favourite board game?
- If you were food, what would it be? (Irina would be marzipan, and Dmitriy would be a honeycake, if you wonder XD)
- What M&M's do you prefer, chocolate or peanuts? What color?
- What invention do you consider the most important?
- What is your favorite word?
- What is the strangest thing you've ever eaten? (meant to be eaten, of course, not concrete or plastic, etc.)
Also, we will be happy if you put some stickers on your card. We LOVE stickers!
If possible – NO envelopes, please! :)
