Things got far more interesting with the internet, of course.
During the last 15 years, I've had many international penpals, and am still in contact with a few of those made 15 years ago. It has been a very rewarding experience to connect with people from other cultures.
Convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez’s life sentence is off to an eventful start.
In addition to multiple prison fights, he’s also staying busy by keeping up on his correspondence.
Hernandez starts it off by apologizing for his delay and that he’s inundated with other pen pals.hello my name is tracy I am 49 yrs old I live in Northamptonshire the uk I like to make friends all around the world I enjoy anything craft related,nature dogs very much as have a springer spaniel dog I like music from the 60s upwards ,dvds reading,writing letters by snail mail ,texting friends, holidays, and learning different cultures around the world I am a good listener and feel free to talk about anything you would like to so please fill my mail box up and will answer you...Hello there am call Latif am from a noblest country which is called Ghana.
