My name ist Grit. My husband and I live in the city of Magdeburg. It's the capital of Saxony-Anhalt, a federal state in Germany, situated in it's eastern part on the river Elbe. I work as an employee of the federal state government. My specialist field is the health care for elderly people.
My favourite activities are cycling, reading, gardening, watching movies. I'm interested in Asian and also in Native American Art and Culture. Also I like Zentangle art. Not at least I love my little tabby cat named Kiki.
Buddhist philosophy is an inspiration for me and it really changed my view to various aspects of life. I'm member of the German-Japanese Society and playing Wadaiko / Taiko drums 🥁 in a group named Akaishi Daiko (https://www.akaishidaiko.de/).

When I started Postcrossing I got to know another member for swap. Now Prince Sisu from Ghana and me are penpals and I support his local school project. They also sell postcards showing various motifs from Ghana to support this project.
