    I have been trying to google some sort of international pen pal program but keep getting 1) letter writing campaign pages or 2) international dating services.

    I would like to have an email correspondence with another woman in a developing country (would love South America but wouldn't be picky) ... How the heck do I go about finding this? I usually can google ANYTHING but this has stumped me.

    Hmm...I find that some things are hard to look up on google. Most of the time you get directed to porn sites :shock:

    I would try contacting the Spanish department at the nearest university. I would imagine that either the professors or students know people through their travels.

    Yah, the google thing didn't work very well -- it was all porn or international matchmaking services! hehe! Terrible.

    Hey mellody43,

    I used to participate in something called the penpal project, several years ago, and had a female penpal from Dominican Republic. I just looked up "penpal project" and couldn't find any reference to the old project I was in. By the way, my penpal dumped me after about a year, when she got married. Said she'd be too busy taking care of her husband and babies. Isn't it strange how cultures are different?

    I do, however, have contacts in a few countries -- Spain, England, a few African countries, and maybe Dominican Republic or Costa Rica. exactly what are you looking for? I may be able to help you find someone. My best contacts are in Africa, where I know a couple fairly high-placed goverment officials, including a lawyer who's a delegate to various international women's groups. And she owes me a favor.

    What exactly are you looking for? Send me a PM, okay? Maybe I can help.
