Calling Someone!

Hi out there, my name's Diego Barletta. I'm an Italian student aged 22, who's studying languages I'm publishing this announcement because I am interested in corresponding with Australian Aboriginal people, to learn about the languages and cultures of your big island. I do have lots of hobbies: sport, languages, reading, traveling, outdoors, cinema, listening to music, collecting postcards and much, much more. I really love your culture and I would be SO glad receiving, mails from you.

I'm looking forward for your messages. I don't care about age or gender, everyone (who's Aboriginal and knows about his/her language and traditions) is welcomed to please email me.... Best reg from Italy. Diego.
