About the author:
"Hello. My name is Romina Aimar, I’m from Santa Rosa, province of La Pampa in Argentina.
I’m a computer teacher in National University of La Pampa.

post office), and so it began my fascination for the philately.

philatelists to set up an exhibitiom and my constant visits to the post
office helped me to be convened.
I felt frustrated in the beginning because there is a lot of rules to make a presentation, so I decided to
do it virtually and receive suggestions and advices from more experimented philatelists.
