I'm a retired teacher and I live with my husband in Osaka Prefecture, Kansai District.
I love looking at the world map. I've been interested in the world since I was a child, and enjoyed traveling a lot, but it seems to be getting harder for me to visit a foreign country.
This project gives me some information of the person who sends me a postcard and a part of his/ her country/ region. I always read the sentences on each card with much pleasure, so the more you write, the more pleased I feel.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading mystery novels or writing to my penpals living abroad and at home.
Any card is appreciated, but NO retro / vintage and ad cards, please.
Here are some of my favorites ( ^ - ^ )
★ ( to Russian people ) Matryoshka dolls
★ Moomin characters
★ beautiful scenery
★ nature [ mountains with snow, flowerfields, fields, forests, lakes etc. ]
★ people [ (especially) children, women ]
★ national costumes / local traditional costumes
★ maps, flags
I'm looking forward to receiving yours.
