My mother had shredded the letters she had received, but she found the letters I received as a teenager in the late 1980s, some via the International Youth Service (now closed down), and some from schoolfriends who moved away before the rest of us finished our schooling. I wonder what happened to Li Pin in Singapore, Ester in Jülich/Germany, Frederic in Toulouse/France, and Julie in Rouyn-Noranda/Canada. I hope they are all well. I think it may have been me who stopped writing.... I have their letters in front of me.... perhaps if I am curious enough, I could send something to the address they used back then..... maybe I'd hear something back from them.....
