Default Intro--Phil in Paris from France

Hi everybody

My name is Philippe and I live in Paris France. One day in March 2002 I was surfing the web to pass the time and I've found a site to write to prisoners. This doesn't exist in France. I've read the ads, and one of them caught my attention. During 2 days I was wondering whether I should write this guy or not, and finally decided to take pen and paper. About 10 days later, on 03/19, I got a reply from Joey and since then we write each other almost everyday. He sent me the form to be placed on his visiting list, and after 3 months waiting, I've been approved. I've planned to visit him end of this month or begining of the other. I'm currentlty saving money for this week-end.
I've already read a lot of posts on PTO, and I truly think this site is wonderful!!!

Thanks
Phil

Phil-Florida is a very nice state-I am sure you will enjoy your visit and I know Joey will be thrilled to see you! I have also been to France-very beautiful-actually my brother lived there 6 months and it is his favorite place in the world! He speaks fluent french. Will this be your first trip to the United States?

Welcome to PTO!

Interesting story. I am fascinated about prisons in other countries. You said ads like this don't exist for french prisons.
Please post any information you know about french prisons.

HI Phil... that's great that you were finally approved for a visit. How long do you think it'll be before you make it for one now?
I just wanted to say welcome to the family... I"m glad you're here.

Hi Jodygirl
to be quite honest I hope it will be very soon. In fact we planed a visit for last week-end 09/14 09/15 but my business was very slow this summer and....I completely forgot about all those damn government tax we have to pay begining of September !!!! So unfortunately I had to delay my visit and it was a problem, he thought I was playing games with him !!! It took me hours to write back I wasn't !!! Anyway I'm saving hard, this week-end will cost me about 1200 USD and I've completely stopped waisting money on bars restaurants discos and new clothes !!!! So I hope I'll be able to fly before mid-October, but I don't want to tell him a date unless I've bought my flight ticket !!
Thanks again to all of you for your nice much needed warmhearted welcome, my friends here don't judge me nor him, but they really think I'm crazy !!!
