The letter is hand-drawn, 2 sided, and includes a description of the destination, habits, culture, and fun facts. Each letter is written from the point of view of a different local – every time a new surprise. Depending on your subscription type, various other formats (collectibles postcards, for example) will be included – check the Subscribe page to see the currently available bundles.
