Postcrossing is about regular people, and not their governments, politicians or generals. I hope you think so too.
I'm against the war and any discrimination. I hurt for everyone who suffers now. Pain and shame. I'm so sorry.
My name is Irina, I'm 35, live in Saint-Petersburg. I studied Culturology at university, but work in a company selling sanitary ware, plumbing and other bathroom/kitchen items - things happen this way, you know. I love reading, nature and music. I do like to learn something new! I'm interested in languages, psychology, space, video and board games, needlework (e.g. cross-stitching) and much more. I'm also a big fan of biathlon.
