About Onno...

I got a postcard from Russia (sent 14-12-2011)showing military flags, without a postcard-ID. The name of the sender was illegible; stamped under a terrible postal barcode. If it is yours, please contact me.

I am Onno, and I live in Purmerend, which is about 20 km north of Amsterdam.
I am born in 1947, so 76 years old at the moment.
I am married, have one daughter and two grandchildren (boy(14 y/o) and girl (15 y/o)).
I like reading, (modern)art and architecture, history (especially the inter-war period and East Europe), (classical)music, travelling and playing bridge.

Since August 2009 I am a retired teacher. For many years I was head teacher of a primary school and the last 10 years of a school for children with special needs, age 12-18.
At the moment I am back at school as a volunteer teacher; I teach Dutch (language and culture) to children of refugees from Ukraine.

I have friends in many European countries, because years ago I coordinated a European primary school project for 10 different European countries. The name of that project was "ELOS". The project does not exist any more, so now I use the word "ELOS" (Portuguese for "link") as a username for postcrossing.

All your postcards are very welcome; however to get an idea of my preferences, go to my postcards wall and look at my favorites.

Finally I think that the back (written) side of a postcard is at least as important as the picture.
