California to Thailand
I've done a swap with Dephal in California. Here in Thailand, I got a huge box of things (nicely timed to coincide with my birthday). For me, there was a great magazine, some packets of seasoning mixes for various Tex-Mex dishes, some delicious honey-orange almonds, lots of mini-soaps from Phyllis's recent hotel visit, a handmade necklace.......and for the 60 Thai kids I teach, she also sent funky pencils, real 1970's-style bubble gum with the coolest wrappers, and little plastic frogs that hop when you press their tails down. I had a party with the kids for my birthday, and I gave all 60 of them a pencil, gum and frog combo! They were so delighted! Thankyou, Phyllis, it's been great fun! You have made 60 Thai children very, very happy! And one English woman. :0)
Thailand to California
I received my package today from Liz in Thailand. I can barely get all the goodies into a single picture. She sent me all sorts of just wonderful things--it took me a long time just to unpack the box! Thank you, Liz, for everything!
And thank you, GYS, for making all this possible. I've now completed several swaps with people all over the world (and several more are in progress), and I have never had so much fun with the mail in my life. Not a single swap has disappointed me.
