Greetings from the Urals!
I´m glad you've drawn my address!
My name is Nina. I live in the Southern Urals in the small town of Plast. Plast means "a layer". It is called so because there is a gold deposit under the town and gold-mining is the main industry here. Besides, the largest deposit of kaolin in Russia is located nearby. So, the place I live in is an industrial site. I work as a teacher of English in an ordinary comprehensive school. I really enjoy working with children of all ages!
I'm always very busy and have practically no time for hobbies. Still, I'm fond of photography and reading.
I'm happily married with two daughters who live far away from me and I miss them greatly.
I'd be pleased to get any cards but they must nor depict any military scenes, acts of torture and mistreatment of people or animals or scary things. Please avoid sending me postcards that have sexual contents because I'm going to show your postcards to my students. I'm not fond of retros, reproductions, paintings or drawings. It would be nice to get postcards with
- city views;
- landscapes: mountains, rivers, lakes, seaside, forests, islands;
- important buildings;
- national cuisine;
- national costumes;
- traditional arts;
- fairy tales;
- popular customs and traditions;
- stylized maps of the country and so on.
Postcrossing is a great way of improving English and developing interpersonal skills, isn't it?
I'd be grateful if you put the card in an envelope and enclose a used cinema/zoo/theatre/museum/train/bus/subway/ferry ticket or a stamp, a coin or any other small objects from your country. :)
