Falling in Love, Thanks to a Typo

By Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg

StoryCorps records true stories as told by real people and then brings them to life with animation. To R.P. Salazar, with Love, an animated short by the Rauch Brothers, is the true story of two strangers who met and fell in love thanks to their nearly identical email addresses. Rachel P. Salazar and Ruben P. Salazar lived halfway around the world from each other when a glitch in everyday electronic communication put them in touch.
