Sometimes I get swaps from places I've never heard of, or sometimes from cities I wish I could visit. Invariably, I wonder what it would be like to wander around these places and see them for myself. I also find myself wishing that most swaps went beyond postcards-- I keep sending out postcards of monuments and famous artworks, but most people in my northside neighborhood don't go downtown unless it's for work! I want to find out what it's really like to live somewhere, and tell people what it's really like to live here.
Have you ever felt the same? Then this swap might be for you!
For this swap, you will write a minimum of 3 A5 pages-- that's about a page and a half of notebook paper, or 3/4 of a page typed-- about what it's like to live in your small town, suburb, neighborhood, etc. This can include popular hangouts, what attractions there are (A park? A community center? An amazing restaurant), if it's noisy or quiet, if there's a lot of crime or not a lot of crime, etc.
You will then take a minimum of 3 photos of different things you find interesting or that are meaningful to you in your neighborhood and have them printed on standard professional 4x6 photo paper, with a short explanation of each (one sentence is fine, or you can even refer to the letter-- just make sure your partners know what it is).
You will have 2 partners, and 3 weeks to go adventuring.
In short, that's: - one letter - 3 photos - 2 partners - 3 weeks
I will angel, but no unresolved 3's in the past 6 months and no 1's in the past year. Newbies welcome with well-filled out profile as I've had good luck on my other swaps.
Happy swapping and take care! :)
