About Urara...

Hello! My name is Urara, うらら(麗).I was born and raised in Peace City, 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 parents, a 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 not working for 17 years but fortunately my mood has been far better and stable, 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!

I like reading crime fictions, watching Korean and other country's mystery series, walking, grocery shopping in local markets, getting on the local bus, and learning languages, though none of the tongues are far to be perfect.
I have been a great fan of Scandinavian mystery, Martin Beck series in Sweden.
I also enjoy watching baseball games on TV, am a fan of our local team, Hiroshima Carp.

I have visited USA ,Poland, Canada (3 month stay in Vancouver), Russia, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Korea before.

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 over and helped foreign students life here.
We've had guests and students 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

Thanks to them, I am very interested in different cultures.
I enjoy learning foreign languages by myself little by little and I guess I can read your writing in German and Spanish with my old paper dictionaries and Google translation, perhaps including Dutch.
Written in Korean makes me happy as well.

Feel free to write in cursive writing, though it may difficult for me written in German and Spanish.
I am interested in whatever you write and tell me, for example, your hobby, your favorite book, song, place, quote, daily life and others.
My mother enjoys reading your writing as well.

Any post card will be welcome.
I am not picky and I don't mind receiving the same card twice.
But just If you have the following types of cards, I would be happy with
-your local view and nature
-your traditional costume
-your local food
-happy illustration and pictures of children, birds, flowers and others
-bus, tram ,train, civil aviation, ship, ferry
-bridge, airport, port

Thank you so much for reading my profile.
Please stay safe, happy and healthy.
Love and Peace
September 2022

PS I have already had many friends and because of my health, basically I won't do direct swaps. But if you are interested in doing snail mail with me, please let me know and I will tell you if I can do or not.
