Russian boy finds message in a bottle sent 24 years ago

It may be the era of email, but messages in bottles are still being received.

­A young boy in Kaliningrad has just found one 24 years after it was sent. 

The message was bottled by a German boy who was 5 at the time. He was traveling around Denmark with his parents when he threw the bottle into the sea.

Now the sender is 29 years old. He and his new Russian friend are communicating regularly – by Skype, though, rather than by bottles.
