If anyone knows a Rachel Ward (not the actress) from Suffolk, England - she was my penpal for a few years, in the early 1980s. I remember she sent me an eraser once and called it a "rubber" and I thought that was hilarious.

I'm kind of off-topic here, but 'the world is small', as they say in French. You never know who might know who-else...

I know, wouldnt it be nice to get home in the evening to something other than credit card bills and promotional garbage on the hall floor? I used to love writing letters. I had an Aboriginal penpal and later on one from Turkey. But as time went by our letters grew less and less...probably my fault! I'm terrible at keeping in touch with ppl....

Hippiechic, you should come to India with me! .

I think penpals are just great-i currently am in contact with one (one of sooo many) cousins in Iran-it did used to be so exciting recieving letters and every now and then the occasional gift but now we exchange emails and pictures that way.

I find it so fascinating the difference in culture-its unbelievable.

  1. 14, absolutly!! When I'm talking about penpals, the German girl and the Italian guy, I contacted them though internet first!! Sure, once in a while I like to recieve "real" letter via mail, but they take soooo long to arrive!!

I am still waiting for a small package that my aunt sent me from France one MONTH ago!! Might be lost or something....
