I received an air mail package from a Mindpasta member. It was a thrilling treat. Inside was stickers, Korean coins, and a letter written half in English, half in Korean.
The letter took some work for me to fully translate. Just greetings, the weather, and encouraging each other to study. It is only the second “snail mail” item I have received written in Korean. I have to say, I find mail pretty exciting!
My favorite line “You inspire me to 열심히 공부해요!” That is kind of her to say, as she is obviously much more advanced in her Korean learning than I am.
For USA coinage, it goes like this. One dollar is 100 cents. A quarter is 25 cents. A dime is 10 cents. A nickle is 5 cents. A penny is 1 cent. Therefore, a dollar equals 4 quarters, 10 dimes, 20 nickles, or 100 pennies. In terms of size, the smallest US coin is a a thin dime. Next is the penny, then nickle, then quarter. These four coins are not the only coins we use in the US, but they are the most common. I’m fond of the large cent and wheat pennies. For many years, I carried a large cent with me for luck.
