About Urara...

Hello! My name is Urara, うらら(麗).I was born and raised in City of Peace, Hiroshima. So I always, especially currently, hope that all the people in the world will live together in harmony and peace. I am single and live with my elderly parents (Dad has been suffering light dementia and others since he had a stroke and the surgery in February 2024), my younger sister and two lovely goldfish who can "talk" with us. I have been suffering from manic- depression(Bipolar Disorder) and obsessive-compulsive disorder(OCD) and early retired since 2005 but fortunately my mood has been better, compared to before I joined Postcrossing. So I always thank all of the Postcrossers for sending me cards that make me smile and give me hope and energy to live!
(But these days my condition has been a bit lower again and I have been homebound. So I could make wrong spellings and mistakes on a card more.)

I like reading, watching Korean and other country's mystery series, nice films, grocery shopping in local markets, taking on local buses, and learning languages, although any of the tongues are far to be perfect.
I enjoy watching baseball, a fan of Hiroshima Carp.
I am a great fan of Scandinavian mystery, Martin Beck series in Sweden.

Luckily I have visited USA ,Poland, Canada (3 month stay in Vancouver), Russia, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Korea, those trips were quite a long time ago though.

Our house is very small but we had been a member of a volunteer group, "host family association" for 20 years and had many guests from the world and also helped foreign students life here.
They were from

Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, India, Israel, Kenya, Kyrgyz Republic, Malaysia, Netherlands, Palestine, Philippines, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sudan, UK, USA, Zambia

I am interested in whatever you write and tell me your hobby, your favorite book, song, place, quote, food, daily life and others.
I love joke as well!
My mother enjoys reading your writing as well.

Feel free to write in cursive.

Any postcard will be welcome.
I am not picky and I don't mind receiving the same card twice, but here are some of my likes if you need ideas:
-your local view and nature
-your traditional costume
-your local food
-happy illustration and pictures of children, birds, flowers and others
-giant panda
-your public transportation
-bridge, airport, port

Thank you for reading.
Please stay safe, happy and healthy.
Peace and Joy
