Penfriend: a person with whom one becomes friendly by exchanging letter, especially someone in a foreign country whom one has never met.
That just about covers it. I’ve met all the bright-eyed little children though. And now they’ve begun to write to each other from the tiny village school near to Bangalore in India, and NGG International School in Denmark.

Once again, the young people of the world show us adults how to make things better.
