Letter(s) from Elizaveta Arbousova to Mark (USA)

Letter 1

Good morning! I spotted your page earlier.But I just can't recall to my mind exactly where... I precisely do not remember... I possibly could produce some other excuse to talk, having said that I shouldn't mess your brain :). Could we dispense without worrying about the formalities? Could I talk with you actually ? My nickname "Kuma"! :) I'd personally wish to become your pal, as well as correspond to you. I speak 2 different languages. I am twenty-four. I am from the Russia. I actually mailed you my own photo. I'm sorry because of this picture. I hope that you will not think I am a bad lady. I'm going to write to you a lot more if you'll excuse me for these straightforward photo.

HI!! It is Natalja!
Thanks that you answer me so fast!!!
I would like to have a relationship with you although I don't know if that's possible in Int. but you know so I'm looking just for a good man!
I want to see real life and it is impossible to see without person who knows all sides of the life .......
Today many used a special program for young people who wants to work abroad. I also decided to do so and to use it. This program just helps to register documents and gives suitable work in any state(town)of USA, Canada or Europa (or other big country). I just need to choose.
I already started to register documents and now I need to decide in which city I want to work..
I plan to work in sphere of services or trade!
I decided to find a men and make his city to be my purpose.
I will leave my town in a few days or so. I can't tell you everything exactly right now......
I do hope that you will be not disappointed to meet me in the real life if we will meet ....I think that my e-mail starts to be too long ?
I also want to see your different photos and hope to know you better!
I want you to know that I have only good intentions.

Letter 4

Hi dear, thank's for your reply so much!!! I find it nteresting...
I write you my emails from Internet cafe, I don't have my own computer.

You heard a saying the older the violin the sweeter the music?!
I hope soon I will be able to come to your area and we will meet each other!
Today I will tell my parents about you, I'm sure they will be happy that someone is waiting for me over there!
This time I will write you more about myself. I think you should know more about my life and my hobbies so you will know if we have any common interests.
First of all my full name is Pricova Natalja . 24years old, not too young I think? My birthday is 19 April I'm 153cm tall (5.5) and 52 kg weight..

I don't know exactly my waist, hips measurements, I don't have a reason to measure it because I think it's OK and my body is proportionate )) I take care of my body, I do aerobics three times a week and I go to the swimming pool twice a week.I have a younger brother!
We all (me, my brother and my parents) live in two-rooms flat.
As I wrote you I live in Russa. The name of my city is Brjanka, it's near Krasnoyarsk city. Brjanka is very small and Krasnoyarsk is a large city, the main city in our district.
I graduated from Krasnoyarsk Humanitarian University two years ago.
I`m a menager of the big shop, my city is small but we have a big shop here. Sometimes I attend courses in Krasnoyarsk so I have several diplomas, but you know in russia we don`t have good work opportunities.
But this work help me to take care about myself.
When I come to your city I think it won`t be a problem to find work on my specialization (I shall work as the simple seller).
My mother is a teacher of music in the school. I also could play a piano a little. I like classic music, jazz, rock, lounge. I like all kinds of music!
A little about my father: he is in a good shape because we usually make exercises together, he doesn`t work now, because he is retired already.
I love both my parents and I'm happy my parents will be not alone when I leave them and will go to another country. Of course I will miss everybody but I want to have my own happiness!

do you have an International Airport in your city? please write me it's name an code.
or write me the name of the nearest INTERNATIONAL Airport to you.

If you want I can call you when I will be in Capital, it would be nice to talk to you. We don't have international calls here. I suppose in few days I will fly to Moscov and start my trip!
There is no any messenger in this Cafe so we can only keep emailing each other. I hope you are not getting bored to read my emails?
My address here is Rus.Federation, Brjanka, Lugawaya street 12 flat 4, post code(zip) - 663291.
So now you have a representation of who I am....

I like to try new things.. :-) do you like my photos?
ok... it's time to finish my email. I'm sending a kiss by the wind ...catch my kiss !!

bye, Natalja

Letter 5

Hello!!
My honey, thank that you continue write me!!
I like to know that you thinking about me too...

Now my parents don`t worry about me as before because now they know you are a kind man and can help me if I will need your help. You can show me your city and tell me about the life over there! I think I didn't write you I like cooking.
I will cook RUScuisine for you! Pelmeni, vareniki, blini, borsch, okroshka!
You will like it! Besides I like Italian and Mexican. I love spaghetti and pizzza!!!!! mmm...I like bananas! I can't live without it! I like Mexican food because it's very spicy, although I don't cook Mexican dishes too often. I've been told my cooking is very tasty!
I like to cook cakes. my favorite is cheese-cake with raspberry! You know... when I talk about food I'm getting hungry ) I eat everything and I'm not on any diets but usually I don't eat after 7 pm. This helps me not to be fat! I can cook many tasty things for you when we will meet! You know..
almost all Russian men are like bears! They are so rude, they can't be nice and polite, they don't want to have a family. I think you are not like them.
I like to go to the cinema! I really like to watch a good movie with my friends. 50 percents of movies in our cinemas are Russian and about 50 American. actually my favorite actor is Matt Damon and I like all movies with him. I've watched "Adjustment Bureau" Have you seen it?
could you recommend me any American movie so I can watch it?
What is your favorite movie and actor? Soooo... what else could I say?
I have a driver's licence but I don't have a car. My father has a russian car and he gives me his car sometimes.
I don`t like only cinema! I like theatre and opera too, I like ballet.
I am dancing modern dances a little!
Unfortunately there is only one small theatre in my city and there is nothing interesting. If I want to go to ballet, for example, I should go to Krasnoyarsk, there sometimes can come famous Russian actors and dancers but I can't go there often because it's quite expensive.
By, the way, one thing else about my trip. Agency will help me to rent a room to stay near my future work. I will share this room with a few girls yet, it is usual procedure and it helps to pay the rent (it will be cheaper).
And I have a question, is it normal if we will like each other may be it is possible to live together?of course if you or somebody doesn't mind.
As you know I will stay there for three months but If I will like there I will be able to prolong my trip. I think I will be able to improve my english and you can learn Russian and I think it will help us to learn each other better,who knows.
I had no sex during one year.. Do you have a big wide bed?(joke).

And now I have some good news for you! After sending this email I will go home, take my packed bags and go to Krasnoyarsk! From there I will fly to Moscow!
I`m really afraid to fly on a plane! I hope my plane will not fall down! I'm really afraid!
It is several hours from Krasnoyarsk to Moscow.
when I come to Moscow and settle down I will write you an email. I hope today I will be able to write you. Please don't worry about me if you don't hear from me today or tomorrow, that will mean I was not able to find a place to stay and I will write you after tomorrow.
In Moscow I will spend a week or maybe even more, I should make all final arrangements with my documents and after it I will come to you!
I've never been to Moscow before and I'm so nervous now... I've never went somewhere alone and now I should go alone to such big city!
I really want to talk to you by phone, but as I don`t have a mobile phone, I will find a public phone in Moscow with international calls.
you know... I had such great desire to start my trip already.. and now I feel myself like a newborn kitten who has even didn't open it's eyes... I just want to hug my mommy and don't want to go anywhere...
but I know that's my dream to start a new life and I will try to turn in to reality! Soon you will hear some news from me from Moscow!!!!!!!! hope I'm only for you! love you and kisses!

P.S. Please do not show these pics to anyone..it is only for your eyes...

Natalja

Letter 6

I am very glad to write you again!!! I in Capital of our country!!

I was in a travel agency, all my documents are ready.
Now they are checking a possible flight to your air port.
They will give me all information (date and time of my arrival, etc.) tomorrow I think or after tomorrow.
Tomorrow I will continue to see M o s c o w, like a tourist.
In Moscov there are so many different museums! Here good weather, about 2`C, but I feel myself so alone.
Everything here is very expensive, not like in my city...
Everywhere are big crowds of people!
Everyone rush somewhere and I don`t know anybody here. I feel uncomfortable because of it but I hope I will be OK soon.
You can't imagine how happy I am because I already started my trip to you!
I still cannot believe I've done it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Something amazing occurs inside of me after I have received your first letter!
My heart lost calm since then. But it's interesting that it does not want to find it again!
Every my cell shouts about how it wants to see you. I want to see and kiss you!
My sun, you know perhaps, but I'll tell you that you are the clearest man in the world. My sun!
I cannot even think without you, I become silly! I do not want even to breath without you!
I need you as an air. It's so incredibly stuffy without you, and I can really breathe of you!
I'm finishing my letter and I want to thank you for hope you offer me.

P.S

Please CONFIRM the name of int. airport (and his code) and be sure you wrote it right.

kiss you , Natalja

Letter 7

My sweetie hello! excuse me that I could not write to you earlier.....
I'm writing to you as soon as I can!!!!!! I was busy with many arrangements!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! also I had to repeat some words for my English test and I finally passed my test today morning!!!
today I was in the travel agency and I received an information about my trip!
I will be very thankful to you if you can meet me at the Airport!

I will arrive to you on Monday, 16 April
I shall inform number of flight, the terminal and an arrival time probably Saturday or on Sunday.
more in detail look at the end of the letter. I copied the information of agency

I hope so much it's a good day for you to meet me!

I am so glad to see that we are almost near our goal,and our meeting wait for us. I think I will call you from airport before my flight.
You know I booked tickets on Monday, 16 April flight and I will buy them before my intervew. People from embassy must be sure that I am not going to stay illegally, so I need to buy roundtrip tickets (with returning date).
I wanted to ask you about electronic tickets but they tell that I can't use because it is their businees to arrange all travel details and they have some extra money from all the things, you see it is just business.I think that you will be able to help me because I don't know anybody here and only you are my hope now, I think everything in your hands and I believe that you will not leave me here alone.please borrow some money. I am sure I will be able to return all your money back after a few weeks, I will get salary and I will collect the sum I own from you.
To be fair I am not sure I know what to say because I hate to ask but now I have no different way, you see.Please help me it is only money and much more important if we will meet in person I will do my best, you won`t be disappoined. I see that it sounds a little crazy but I can't believe that in the worst case I have to return home,they all will laugh at me.I think it rests with you to decide and I feel that you will help me because you are kind. I have about 300 US dollars yet and I think I need about 980 US dollars from your side with all travel needs and living here till my flight! (I had 1180 dollars, but flight from Krasnoyarsk, opening visa, medical insurance and all travel needs costed about 800 dollars).
For truth I did not expect I will need to buy roundtrip tickets, but now I see that its a very strict rule.
I was sure that my mom will help me because she promised but now she sent letter that it is possible only in a few months or so because of family problems.and she can't send transfer now.I was in the bank to try to ask them about loan but they tell I have to have something to stay them and I have nothing to stay because I have only a few dress and things,some perfume and it is all I have,and small gift for you from russia with love.

please send it today by Western Union or Money Gram
I will write you details:
!!!
send it to russia, on my full name:

*** Natalja Pericova ***

Also I've got an advice to send you a scan copy of my passport in case you need to confirm my details.

this is my full name used in all official documents. They said this is all info you need.
But please for any case write down more info. The address where I'm staying: Bolshaya Yakimanka, 14 , post code (zip) 109180. I rent a small room In an apartment of an old policeman here, it's cheaper then hotel.The address of the closest Western Union (or MoneyGram) here is:

"ROSEVROBANK" Moscow , 109180, BOLSHAYA YAKIMANKA 19

I have some money but it's not enough to complete my trip.
Please send me 980 US dollars and I will complete my trip!
After it please write me all details about the transfer -

your FULL NAME and Money Transfer Control Number.!!

I will call you as soon as I receive it.
When I receive the money I will pay for my trip and only then the embassy will put all final stamps on my documents.

You are already very special to me!

I will listen to everything you tell me and I will do everything you tell me! I trust you really much!

Letter 8

hi Mark! thank you for helping me! I really appreciate it!
I am getting a little nervous about the trip, but I know that you will help me to get started when I'll be far away from my motherland. I hope you can send me some money as soon as possible ((( 980 ))), so that I have time for the last interview at the embassy.
I'll be waiting for your next email anxiously and I am happy that soon I'll be able to see your eyes and kiss you. I want to believe that this moment will be very soon!
Right now I am sitting and listening the warmest and beautiful love sons and dream about a fairy tale that lasts all life long!
THIS POEM IS FOR YOU MY LOVE

«...the blue evening is melting,
sleep, I'll be sitting by you,
sleep and don't worry about anything,
pull my hand to the sky,
and light up a star.
Feel the warmth of the star,
Sleep and don't worry about a thing.»

I read somewhere that woman is expecting a gentle relation to her.
I think the one who wrote this is right. It is hard to believe and trust to man, but I really want to! I want to be gentle and sincere, sometimes a little capricious and beatiful only for my man. I want him to be ahead of the whole planet, him and not me. I want to be by his side. I will be supporting him and inspire him.
Unfortunately this world is changing.
Sometimes I think that i firsty a good specialist and secondly a good woman.
But I want it to be a different way round. It is strange, I am dreaming about you, I would like to be fragile and gentle with you, I would like to make you happy!
And then I go and do the things I don't really want. I am firstly a woman!
Every day is like that - a vicious circle.
I keep on asking myself what womem do men need: Gentle and fragile? Or may be differet one - srtong and rough?
While finishing this letter I would like to ask you once again - CAN I RELY ON YOU?
I am not scared to let my life to you. I WILL BE WITH YOU FOREVER AND NOTHING WILL TEAR As APPART! If it all depended on me, I wouldn't waste any time and would come to you as soon as I can, my honey!

Natalja
