One of the most important things is to look after myself .In a sound mind ,a sound body. I am sending my photos so you can see me. You know I am not very photogenic.

Letter 2

Hello ! I am very glad to get your letter. You are interested in me) And that is good news for me. I was afraid to see negative reaction from your side. I have never had friends via internet before.
And that scared me. But you are a good man. I see that in your letter.
That means you have found something in me and maybe want to know each other better. I wrote about my life on the whole in my first letter.
You already know I live in Lesogorsk. It is a usual small town in Russia. But I love it so much. I love to have a walk on its tiny but comfy streets, beautiful parks among the river. You know I like to walk, together with my friends or alone. When I am outside alone I dream. Dream about future life. Where everything is good, I have a good job that brings pleasure and good income. I dream that I will meet my love. No doubt I had close relationships. But they ended with nothing behind. Many Russian men are rude and I always wanted to be loved, to feel warmth. I think everything will be alright. And what do you dream about? Do you like just to sit and dream? I like to see new films in the cinema, I also like to read. And what about you? Please tell me what films and books do you like? I am really interested in it. What do you do in your spare time. Maybe I ask too many questions.
But knowing more about you is interesting for me. By the way, about my city. I think you can find it on the map easily. You can look an arrangement of my city, having passed on this link!

And again shortly about myself. My favourite sports is swimming. I am good at swimming. From time to time I go to the swimming pool. My favourite colors are pink and blue. My favourite flower is a tulip.
And what about you? Do you like your job? Do like what you do? I am sure that is important. It is important to love you job. Then you job will bring pleasure. Do you agree with me? In my first letter I wrote about the opportunity to visit your country. Yes, that is true. I work as a teacher. I am a young teacher and I am a successful girl)… That is not shy but anyway. I studied in the university to get this specialty. I also studied other foreign languages. My English proficiency is quite good. And I can easily learn another foreign language. I don’t doubt at it. I like my job. Earlier everything was alright and the salary was worthy. But now everything changed. Maybe the economic crisis caused this. Russia was deeply influenced by it and also my job too. But I am an optimist and I believe in bright future. And recently they have offered me a new job in your country.
That is very prospective and a good salary. I have thought about it much. Firstly I was afraid to go to another country alone and I denied that offer. But later I made my mind to begin a new life and I agreed with that offer. Now I am waiting for arranging on all the aspects with my job. But I don’t know when exactly. Soon I will be able to go to your country and work in a school. I will teach kids Russian language. I really want to find worthy job that will bring pleasure and good income. But please let’s not speak about money. I believe in bright future and every man should build his own future. Do you agree with me? What do you think about it? I want to know your opinion. I think you have understood the reason of my letter. I want to get acquainted with you. I will come to your country and will not be alone. I will know you. And maybe we will have a future where we are together. Are you against it? OK. I will end my letter for today. It is also as big as the previous. But I want to tell you so much. I hope you understand this. And I hope you will patient enough to read this big letter from an unknown girl from Russia. I am waiting for your letter Ekaterina!

Hello my dear!! I am very glad to get your letter. How are you?
Is everything alright? I am alright. Today the weather is fine. The sun shines brightly. I like such weather. How is the weather by your side? I will begin my letter with a story about my family and me. I think this is important for our correspondence. I want to tell much about my life. Reggie I also ask you to write more about yourself, your life and your family. It is always interesting for me. And in this way we will know each other better. Do you agree? I have already written I live with my mom. We live in a one room apartment. But there is enough space for both of us. This is a small and comfy flat. My mother is a very kind, sweet, helpful woman. She is respected at her job. She has been always been my best friend. And we always understand each other. I love my mom very much. Unfortunately, my father passed away when I was a small girl. Reggie can you tell me about your parents.
It is very interesting. My mother and I like to cook together. She taught me many recipes of dishes. I am very good at making different salads, meat dishes, soups and many others. I think my creations are very tasty. I like cooking simply because it is a creative process.
But sometimes I don’t have enough spare time for cooking. My work requires much time. But I am fond of my profession. I want to continue doing my job. I wrote about it to you. Now I am looking through several offers of working in schools in your country. Four schools offered me a job. But firstly I want to see them. And only then choose the best option for me. I think this is right. Do you agree? But now it is early to speak about it. I really hope to see you some day)…And you can give a good advice) Reggie. I am very glad to tell you about me again.

I see you want to communicate with me. I also want to communicate with you. I have many friends here. My attitude towards them is good and to you good too. I like you. I would say that there is some extraterrestrial force between us. And it attracts us. Don’t you think so? I want to correspond with you. I want to write to you every minute. But it is impossible. You and I are busy people. I have only a couple of minutes to write you a letter. But I have an idea. If you give me your phone number I will try to call you.
OK? I will wait for your phone number so I can hear your voice. This is important for me. I understand we know each other not for a very a long time. We have written only a couple of letters to each other. But I hope you will not deny me and soon I will call you and hear your voice! Well… you may think that a young and beautiful lady and still not married?! Young and beautiful) not shy)… But I think this is true). And I hope you also agree with my words?). I have not met my ideal man but I am sure it will happen soon. I feel it. I had relationships earlier. But that was not love. I can’t have relationship with a man without being loved. That is not right. Do you agree? That is the reason I am alone now. That is the reason I am looking for the real love. Please tell me about your past relationships with women. I want to know what kind of person you are.
Do you understand? I will wait for your reply and your number.
Yes! I am a persevering person)… Not only writing letters is important for me but also having a real conversation. I am sure you will write soon. I am waiting impatiently for your letter and will surely reply!

Letter 5

Hello! Hello! Hello!
How are you doing? I am ok. The weather is not very good today. There are many clouds in the sky. That makes me feel sad. But your letter makes me happier. Please tell me how is your work?
Is everything alright? I am doing well. I want to tell you about one funny accident at my job. Today I hold a lecture and communicated with children. And one of the students asked me a question. Will I be always a teacher? I really did not know what to answer. Children always loved me. And they always were glad to come to my lesson. All the teachers notice this fact. Kids never are late and at that moment I heard such a question. I didn’t know what to tell. Life is not a bed of roses. And from time to time you don’t know what will happen tomorrow. Maybe I will work at this school or maybe not. And then I thought about you and about the opportunity to go to you. I thought about the life, job in your country. This is my chance. And I want to use this opportunity. I explained to the students that there will be other teachers during their lives and that I will not be able to stay with them all the time. I wished them more good teachers. And I think this is important. And they understood me. We continued our lesson with smiles. When the lesson was over I thought about you all the brake. And I made my mind to change my life. And I think I will change my life for the better if I go to your country to work on a new place.
I want to tell you thank you. You gave me an opportunity to think about my life that one can change his own life for the better. Thank you. I think we can speak easily and then I will come to a final conclusion about my future. I am waiting for answer.
Your best girlfriend Ekaterina.
