Tonight while packing some more boxes I found my old box of pen pal letters.
Four years ago I was really into pen pal letters. I had letters from all over the world. I had friends in China, India, Greece, Malaysia, Philippines, and across the United States. I have over 100 letters in my little box. I haven’t read the letters in over 2 years. After I moved here I put the box away and forgot about it. Coming across it today brought back old memories. These letters use to make so happy. I miss getting them now. I loved checking the mail to see what new letter was waiting to tell me of someone else’s life and culture. I loved the ones that came packed with photos. I hung those on my walls and imagine far off places.
Once I get to Japan I would like to take up penpaling again. Do people still write letters anymore?
