Letter 2

sorry I couldn't answer earlier . thank you for so kind letter!
And Thank you for your photo, you very handsome man!!!
At first I think I have to say that I am new in ciber space and I have only good intentions. you should know that I am not very good writer in english,please be patient to read my messages and see many mistakes.
to be fair I don't know what do you want to know about me,in principle I am usual girl.I think I should tell you about me, my interests,tastes and hobbies.I think I will tell you about things I want to know about you and you will know my future questions.
My real name is Elena (it means a lot of light in english) ,I am 25 years old,my birthday is August 20.I so much don't want to get older ,when I can see old women I am getting crazy to think that it is my future .I do all the best to keep my youth and I keep my body well.In spite of all difficultes here I am trying to be in good condititon and I do a lot of exercises to be in good shape!
I am about 168 cm tall and my weight is about 54 kg.they tell I look well enough , and I think that all women have own beaty.I have two youngest sisters and it is great problem for us because we have only two rooms flat.you can't imagine what does it mean to be born in small town in Russia,there are not any chances to live well,to get nice job.All young people leave towns to search great luck in big cities but nobody waits for them there. I want to leave Russia,I know it sounds ugly but I know that I will be lost here like many young girls before me.It is not place to grow children and have stable future.I want to meet my right man .
I think in future I can work as fitness trainer I have certificate. My mother is my great problem too,she has great dream to marry me and she wants to make me happy but I think it is only my business I am not a little child.
To be fair I am not sure I am able to explain all in first message I want to say so much!
I just want you to know that I am not afriad to work,I am fairly stubborn and I am sure you will be not disappoined to meet me in real life.I am going to spend three months abroad to work in any shop, agency promises to help me because it is only the way I can leave Russia.I will have all documents to travel in a few days and i will travel to moscow then,from moscow I will travel to you and they ask me about name of the city i am going to work,if you don't mind to meet me please tell me the name of your city and nearest international airport!I will book my flight from moscow!
I think it would be so great to meet my love and stay there forever.I know that it is not so easy like I think but I think it is possible if I meet real love and we are enough stubborn together.
I want to love and to be loved I want to build our own happiness,only me and my man there.
I don't smoke,I tried to smoke when I was younger.I may have a cup of red dry vine,sometimes it helps to relax.
I try to care of my body and face.I know it is all I have .My soul mays have any itnterst for you later,I think so.I am not a little girl and I know that at first almost all men look at body ,legs and face.God created males such persons. Well,I think I am lost in my letter,I am not sure you understand my goals,please feel free to ask. I live in Russia,town Kovran, 56- 34,it is near big industrial city Petropavlovsk -Kamchatsk,Siberia.
I want you to reply if you understand my mind,my intentions,my soul,if not please reply too,I will continue my searching. Well,I will close this letter,I think you are tired to read it.and If you think that I should write more shorter letters please tell me.I write from internet cafe here because there are not cafes and possibility to use internet in my small town,we have 4 digital phone number and we can't call abroad.Even to call in any big town here in Russia I have to order the call in advance.and I would like to say please don't worry if I keep silence sometimes I have no time to travel ,it is about 50 minutes by bus from my town till Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsk!
Please tell me more about you,your tastes,likes and dislikes .also I have a few impotant questions----do you like strong drinks too much?can you be very drunk?very ofthen?can you be rude with women?
Well,I have to stop or I will write without ending.Kiss you !see you later.Lena! send picture of my friend,I have told you about her,she is in France now for holiday, they have a lot of fun before to marry with Erick,and it is her idea to help me to meet my man from abroad !

Letter 3

I am so glad to see your letter again,I think I am lucky girl to meet such man from first time and I will do my best to meet you in real life!
I so like your photos! I printed it to keep it everywhere!
you know I can work in any city of your area because it is free choice and agency only helps me to get only travel documents (visa)and ticket.and I do hope that we will like each other and now I have the destination.
I do hope I have met my right man!you know I have told you before one of my friend worked abroad last year and have met right man,now they live there (in Boston) and they are going to marry.by the way now they spend time here in Russia,(he wants to meet her parents and friends)I think if I will feel that you are my dream and you have the same feelings we could think about our together future.if not I will just work and return back when the time to travel back.
you know I am new here and I am afraid to make any mistake.I have one great lack,I am very impatience and sometimes I can act without thinking.Sometimes I think that my dream is getting for real and it is so badly to be disappoined later.
I want you to know all small things about me because it mustn't be any misunderstandings between us.
I want you to know that I am not angel and sometimes I can show my character.And I don't wait that you to be angel too, I just want to meet kind man .
I am very kind and I can forgive almost all I can't forgive if my man sleep with different woman, I don't know many nesseary words in english .I think you can read between lines.
A little more about myslef!
my favorite activity is swimming. I like to swim in the Swimming pool very much. I wish we had the sea here! I like the sea! We have sea near us but it is very cold one and It is impossible to swimm.
Sometimes I think that I was the fish in past life.I wanted to be as swimm trainer but they told that I will have ugly body with too wide shoulders.
I finished The Siberia State Univercity, trainers faculty as fitness trainer but I don't work on my profession, I used to sit at home and to do all housework,helping my mom.I would like to have good job,I may work dancing teacher, or trainer of fitness,you know I have a certificate.
I worked as a trainer a year ago .
and I would like to do it again .you know how many more younger girls want to get this job too!Alot of competition here.
I want to tell you about things I like:
I like to make barbecue and I so much want to have my own home with fireplace.
usually I make very tasty ones and in principle I like to cook and it is not problem for me to cook something tasty and I don't like to visit cafes and restorauns ,at first usually they can't cook weel(maybe only here) and second too high price.
I like warm weather. and my great dream is to live somewhere on tropical island.
Also I want tell you about my dislikes: I hate our long winters it seems to me they will never end.
I hate lies and unfaithfulness. I hate evil people and politicans I think they like to play wars, I hate any wars.
What I like in a man: faithfulness, honesty. He has to be open- minded and open-hearted, also easy-going.
and much more important he is kind,kindness makes our world!
are you kind???????????????????????????
I think my man should be kind ,it is great feeling after love,only kind person may be happy,all rude people are unhappy. or must be.A few questions yet,agency tells that I will have a room in nearest hotel near my future work but if we like each other may be is it possible to live together.
I think we will enjoy life together. I can't drive and I do hope you give me a few lessons, to be fair I have so many plans .I will find out all travel details about my flight this week .
I will leave my town today in a two hours and i think I will be not able to write to you today or so. When I am in Moscow I will send you short letter to let you know that I am all right and they tell that it takes about two days to get all nesseary papers in Moscow, please confirm the name of airport and I need your last name and phone number I will call you if I have any differents on my way to you! and much more important Please don't look at different girls. I am the best(joke).
Well, I will close this letter I have so many things to do till tomorrow leaving. See you soon!I can't believe everything is for real.
Kiss Elena!

Letter 4

My honey!!!!!!!!!!!
it is me,can you believe I am in Moscow.I can't believe ,it was wonderful flight and they gave red vine in plane,wow,I have never tried such tasty one!!!!!
I was in travel agency today, but my documents are not ready yet, it will be ready in Monday. So in Monday I will go to travel agency again to get all info about my trip.
And of course, when I will get it - I will send it to you!
My friend helps me so much I am not sure I could do something without her ,it is so great city and it takes a few hours to travel from one end to other.They met me in airport and I had not any problems .
They have nice car ,it is Toyota-corolla -not new one (1996 ) it was so nice jorney from airport to their flat.
So comfortable car,I have never been into such car!I don't remember if I told about her , She is Krisitin and we worked as trainers in Irkutsk(Siberia too) a year ago,she has met a men from Moscow and they married, he is from moscow and they love each other very much!
they live poor enough because of so high prices here in moscow and they have to rent flat and I think if they work hard they will have enough money later because it is possible to earn here in Moscow!
you can't imagine how great Moscow is,to be fair I wouldn't like to live here,a lot of cars,people , voice and pollution.Ugly traffic and people with crazy eyes.
When I get off plane in airport MOscow polisemen asked about passport and they looked at me like I am any enemy, I think all people here are a little crazy at terrorism ,and we spend time together with Kristin , she doesn't work because she has a little boy,and he is so funny ,he is only one year old!
I live in their flat ,they rent two rooms flat and have one child only,she is older than me and they plan to have kids yet!
to be fair I feel not too comfortable because I think they have some difficultes with my visit!
They are very friendly and polite,she tells me that it is great risk to travel abroad without right knowelege and it is like any adventure. She tells that I can find good job here in Moscow with help of her husband and she tells that I am not right to travel to you because everything is not so easy like I think, they have much more info here about world's life and she tells me ugly stories about young women who wanted to get new life and now they must work as prostitutes.
I think people living in Moscow are very caution,I think so.
But I think that I have done my choice and to be fair I don't want to live here,it is not the city of my dreams.
you know I am not coward I am not afraid I know it is my chance to meet kind man .I do hope I am right.
and I think you are too kind to make any bad things I feel it.I feel all and I am sure that she is not right.
to be fair I think she is a little envy that I am going abroad ,you know all women envy each other.
Well,I will close this letter ,please write as soon as possible!
Honey, tomorrow the internet cafe will be closed, so I will write you in Monday, after my visit to travel agency, ok?
see you soon! KISS . Great kiss from moscow!!!!!!!!!!

PS: Honey, I made some photos today, here in Moscow specially for you.
