After 8 or 9 years…

My Spanish professor at Millikin gave me the address of a student studying english in Spain. Susana and I became pen pals and were the only two people in our classes to have a succesful pen-pal experience. We never switched to email, but always wrote letters back and forth. But, over the last few years, we have both been moving a lot. I have continued writing to her parent’s address in Murcia.

I wrote her when I got to London and sent her my new phone number. Her mom called her tonight and said, “you got a postcard from your friend in america!” She read the postcard to Susana over the phone and included the phone number. Susana said, That’s a number in London! Susana has been living in London for 4 1/2 years.

I have a friend in London and I am going to meet her! Hooray! Hooray! I get to meet my pen pal!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!
