According to Maria, the Russian postcrosser who sent this card, the words on front read, "Tili tili testo." They come from a nursery rhyme, she says, and have no translation. They are usually said to tease a boy and girl in love. Maria thinks it sweet if they can be said to an old couple who have hung together for most of their lives and still enjoy each other. She's not sure everlasting love is possible but she's eager to try it. This card was her first postcrossing card and it is super.
