When I was in highschool, it was very popular to make a penfriend, we got a nonfamiliar person's name with its address from magazines then wrote to him/her. I was excited to write to a totally unknown friend who was at anther place, his/her caligraphy and his/her experience and his/her photos always attracted me a lot. But later we lost communication, only with old time letters lying there. So how many penfriends do you ever have? Do you still keep in touch?

I have never had a pen friend it must be very educational to write to someone in another country. Now I have internet friends that we write to each other on Internet.

Yeah I agree with you, in the Information Age, it's much easier to make friends online, that's great!

When I was about 8 years old I had so many penfriends. But I haven't heard form them for many many years. I once had a penfriend from Danmark (some school project) and then she came with her school to Iceland and I met her. That was a lot of fun :D

wow that's really fun, maybe that's what people call "fate", I never met with any penfriends without their photos.
