My name is Katya. I was born and raised in the village Kholomerie, the land of lakes and forests. So I'm very fond of nature: the blue waters of the lakes, fresh air of pine forest, bright stars of the clear sky. I like to observe wild animals, gather wild berries and mushrooms.
Now I study and work in Minsk, capital of Belarus. I love spending my free time with friends. I have many hobbies. I love to read, especially books in the genres of science fiction, fantasy, adventure. Embroidering cross, I create souvenirs and gifts to my close friends and relatives. On school days I'm interested geography, which was one of the reasons for my interest in postcrossing.
Lately I've been fond of east Asian cultures (China, Korea, Japan), as the ancient history, myths, cuisine and traditions and contemporary culture - manga, anime, movies, music (k-pop, j-rock).
I will be very happy if you write a few words in their native language (your favorite words or simple words like "thank you", "love", "friends"). I would be interested to receive postcards:
astronomy (the starry sky, constellations, star charts)
music (musicians and singers, musical instruments, sheet music)
characters of myths and fairy tales
a symbol of your country, city (for example, flag, coat of arms, architecture, costume, dish, animal, plant, event, famous person, etc.)
funny and amusing pictures
