We love the mystery of never knowing where our next friend might be from, so we thought it’d be fun to send you some foreign currency we’ve collected in our travels and let you unravel the mystery of where it came from. Is it Turkish Lira, Chinese Renminbi or something else?

Foreign Currency

And much, much more!

We don't want to list everything you could receive in our Pen Pals Holiday Letter. After all, it's a surprise!
