    I do actually, I have pen pals from practically all over the world. there is a site I joined to meet new people and if all goes accordingly we begin pen palling, maybe it sounds odd to some people but I like it.

    check out the site.

    If you can get your hands on a copy of Grit magazine, each month it lists folks looking for penpals:

    ETA: I still write letters to my elderly dad and a dear elderly friend. They really like getting a letter they can hold in their hands and read over and over again; much more than a phone call.
    Unfortunately my handwriting has gone to the dogs, so I usually end up typing.

    I have had a pen pal in New Zealand for about 25 years now. We mostly e-mail now, but every once in a while we shoot off a long hand-written letter. It's so fun to see something in the mailbox with a foreign stamp on it.

    Did you ever find a penpal?
    I've always loved the idea but never quite knew how to go about it.
