Postcard arrives 25 years late
08:33 CET+01:00
Workers at Södertälje council's staff restaurant Café Mörten were delighted on Tuesday to receive a postcard from Inger, newspaper Länstidningen i Södertälje reports.

"Holiday greetings from Rhodes, where it's lovely and warm. The food here is very nice," wrote the happy holidaymaker.

But the card did leave staff at the café with a couple of questions. Who the heck was Inger, for one thing? And, more to the point, why did a postcard sent from a Greek island in August 1982 not make through the letter box until now, more than 25 years later?

"Talk about snail mail," said staff member Gunilla Johansson.

Workers at the café are now hoping that the mystery traveller makes herself known.

"Maybe she worked here in the cafe, or elsewhere in the building. It would be fantastic if she got in touch," said staff member Gunilla Johansson.

Parents of adolescent children will agree that teenagers are hardwired differently. It's why a one-size-fits-all curriculum does anything but ‘fit all'. It's the concept behind Fieldwork Education's International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC), a curriculum designed specifically to suit the developing adolescent brain.
