4 November 2010 - Postcrossing Meetup in St.Petersburg - it was fun!


On 4 November our Russian community decided to arrange the first postcrossing meeting in St.Petersburg, we didn't have much time to prepare - we just announced the date and got together :bouncing: Moreover, a few Moscow postcrossers were coming for those dates too: Raima (who was also bringing the postcards we had ordered from one site), JoyM and Jelkina.

Totally there were 18 people (correct me if I'm wrong) and out route was "classy" - firstly we met up at the main post office where we bought some stamps, then we walked to a cafe. We never booked a cafe in advance, so it was quite a challenge to find anything to fit such a big company :frog: But we did it! We had a lot of fun talking, getting to know each other and writing postcards of course. I myself sent out a few postcards to my lovely friends abroad, don't know about others, sorry we didn't announce the meeting in advance. That was my 3rd PC meeting so ar and i enjoyed it a great deal! Thank you everyone for coming, it was fun! 300+ postcards were signed up during the meeting.

Anyways, a few pictures may be viewed here (by strix_ru)

And here by JoyM.

Maybe more pictures will follow! :frog:
