Letter(s) from Tatyana Sannikova to Steven (USA)

Letter 1

Hello dear Steve!
I am so happy to see that you have decided to reply,only very short one.it seems to me that you are astonished to get my letter.I want you to know that I have only good intentions and I have not any secrets.The thing is that I will work in your country for three months or so and I would like to meet kind man to fall in love or just spend free time with.It is my first time I will be abroad and I think that I need to meet the man who can be so kind to introduce new country for me!I don't want to live in Russia because I have not any chances here,it is hardly possible to explain from first time but I want you to know my plans.I will work in any shop, bar or restaurant.
So I will have a simple work till I improve my English. And I can choose any town of your area,agency only help me to get a visa and all travel documents.My best friend ( I will send the picture of her later) last year met the man from USA when she worked there for three months too. She had two jobs. From morning till 4 pm she worked in amusement park and after it she worked as a waitress in some bar till midnight. She was very tired of course but made very good money there.
It is special programm(name-work and travel) for young people who wants to work abroad and I think it is my chance ,I am lost here,and I think that I look pretty enough to find a better place .I want to repeat her way,it is only my chance to meet a nice man. I am full of plans and different dreams and I want to share time with good man because I'm also full of love and tenderness,I know that I am not so beautiful like Hollywood Princess but I do hope to meet my Prince and I am sure he will be not be disappoined to meet me in the real life!
Well,I will close this letter and I do hope to get your reply.
I will leave russia in a week or so (I can't tell you everything exactly right now) and I would like to be sure that I have the man who waits for me there. I will work all day and I want to find a man to spend my free time together to get to know each other better.if you have any interest to meet me I will be more than happy to meet you too.
I will tell you all details about me and my life if you like my pictures and have interest to meet me!
Now I write you from my personal mailbox, please use this address.
Kiss you ,Natalia (this is my name)!Nata my short name!

Letter 2

Hello my dear Steve,thank you for so kind letter I like it. ! you should know that I am not very good writer in english,please be patient to read my messages and see many mistakes.and I am new in cyber space I am not sure I know how use many things here in internet world!
to be fair I think that ii is very hard to describe myself and one real metting is better than thousand words!
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 Natalia Sitnekowa( Nata my nickname for closest friends) .I am 25 years old, my birthday is September 24.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 my 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 the 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 well paid 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 right place to grow children and have stable future.
I think that in future when I know English very well I can work as fitness trainer I have certificate.I worked as trainer for two years in Vladivostok but now those Gym is closed.
My mother is my big problem too,she has great dream to marry me( she thinks that soon I can be too old to marry) and she wants to make me happy but I think it is only my business I am not a little child.I don't want to marry to have the ring on my my finger I know that much more important to meet the man having the same dreams and plans like me!
To be fair I am not sure I am able to explain all in first messages 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 will 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 man .I know that it is not so easy like I think but I think it is possible if I meet the man of my dreams 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 breast 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 Tobolsk , house 124- flat44,it is near big industrial city Vladivostok.Our town is so small that there is not it on the map,they made submarines here before and all people had nice job but now there are not any arm orders and almost all people have not any job,many of them travel to Vladivostok every day to work ,it is about 40 minutes by bus!
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 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 to cafe!
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. Nata! I am sending picture of my friend,I have told you about her! it was her idea to help me to meet the man on dating site!
It was so nice to meet you ,KIss Nata!please forgive me if I forget to reply on your questions I will do it later!

Letter 3

Hello Steve dear!,
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!
you know I can work in any city of your area because it is free choice and agency only helps me to get all travel documents (visa J-1)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!I think if we have many common we could think about our together future. if not I will just work ,spend free time with you and return back when the time to travel back.
you know I am new in this business 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 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 are angel too,I just want to meet kind man .
I am very kind and I can forgive almost all I only can't forgive if my man sleep with different woman, or he doesn,t want to make love with me! it is very hard to explain I think that I hate to feel that he smells different woman!I think I am only his woman and he is only my man,I think you can think that I am jeaulose person but rather I am just one man woman!
I don't know many nesseary words in english .I think you have to read between lines.
well,A little more about myslef!
my favorite activite is swimming.I like to swim in the Swimming pool very much.We have one here but too many people visit it and it is impossible to swimm free.
Sometimes I think that I was the fish in past life.( I do hope I was dolphin not the shark) I wanted to be as swimm trainer but they told that I will have ugly figure 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 two years ago .one of my friend lives in moscow now we worked as trainers together and we are friends still now,she invites me to visit moscow but I have not such possibility .can you imagine that I have to travel for 9 days by train from here to moscow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Russia is very big country! I would like to work as trainer again.
But 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 reason too high prices.
I like warm weather. and my great dream is to live somewhere on tropical island. ( dream of a little girl)
Also I want tell you about my dislikes: I hate our long winters it seems to me they never end.
I hate lies and unfaithfulness. I hate evil people and politicans I think they like to play wars, I hate any wars and terrorism!they kill chldren and I think they desire only to be killed too.
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 has to be 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, what is your favorite film?book?writter?tell my more about your free time and habbits!
agency tells that I will rent any room with a few girls yet 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.have you wide bed?(joke)I have drive licence but I think that it can be hard to drive in foreign country! ?I do hope you will 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 tomorrow morning I booked my flight I will use plane because I can't wait to meet you ! I think I have enough money to comlete my trip to you . and i think I will be not able to write to you for a day 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 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.
Send you pictures Kiss Nata! I want you to know I am real blonde I didn't change color of my hair.and it seems to me I again didn't reply on all your questions I think about our meeting and my head works badly ,I think that when we meet you will get all answers,please don't worry I am normal girl and there are not any problems with me!!!!and please don't worry if I keep silence it is not so easy to find possibilty to send you a letter from foreign city I mean MOscow!See you soon!

Letter 4

Honey hello!!!!!!!!!!!!
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 will visit travel office tomorrow because it is the day off here(sunday) and I will get all info about my Trip then.
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 (1993 ) 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 Elena and we worked as trainers in Vladivostok two years ago,she has met 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,they don't want to live with his parents I don't know the reason and I think it is not my business!
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 Elena she doesn't work because she has a little boy,and he is so funny ,he is about one year old!
I live in their flat till my flight ,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 ,!see you soon!KISS . Great kiss from moscow!!!!!!!!!!Nata!see you on monday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Many kisses for my beloved man!!!
I am thinking of our meeting only!!!!I will take new pictures here in moscow today or tomorrow and send you !!!!

We should change only the date of my returning flight.if you will not like me and want to leave me I will work for three months and return home ,to be fair I do hope you will love me because I am right person.to be fair in my soul I have so many wonderful pictures of our together time!

Letter 7

Hello my love!you know I have got transfer thank you dear you know I am going to intervew in a hour and I would like to share my fear with you ,you know I am so brave but they tell here that it is enough hard to get visa,but please don't worry it is enough me to worry!in any case I am so happy because my last days looks like any adventure and I have life like in Hollywod films,I am so busy I even don't have time to think about anything,just like in any sleep.well,I have to be ready and I will leave you ,kiss you ,wish me good luck!Nata!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Letter 8

Dear Steve, it's me again,honey I have a few news one of them are nice and other are not so nice.At first I am so happy that we will be together in a few days and I will begin new life,it seems to me I live in any Hollywood film and I am main hero.funny really ???I think you think that I am silly girl but try to imagine it is first time I have so many impressions,so many nice dreams and so many plans,I do hope it will work well.well,about our business!you know that I have been at the Embassy today and had an interview there. We have talked alot, they asked me about my income and property of my parents,also I showed paper that I booked tickets with returning dates.the things is that too many young people want to live in your country and embassy make many barriers on this way!it seems to me that look at me they think that I want to stay forever and don't return home ,but one good thing they tell I have enough good english !well,bad news is that now my visa is ready but not approved , because I need to show to the custom service and to the visa passport service living minimum for this period of time ,it means that I have to have money with me.the amount is $1500 .It is law of passport visa service and they require it to make sure that person have enough money for living needs and will not stay inlegally. I have told them that I will work and earn money but they tell that it is not their business and it is very strong rule for all persons who wants to leave Russia.
In other case if i don't have this amount with me visa process will be canceled. Honey I know that it sounds ugly but again nice thing that all the money will be with me and I will only show it and save it with me and when you meet me in airport I will return all amount to you ,maybe I spend a few dollars to bye any small gift for you,only 10 or 20 dollars!Honey my honey please try to send money as soon as possible I need to approve my visa till tomorrow (my last interview ),do not worry This is our last step and we will be together.
I will be waiting for your answer today. Remember I do not pay this amount just show that I have. I will wait for your info and I do hope it is last problem on this way,I hate politicans , they imagined so many barriers and borders,why simple people can't just meet each other? I can't understand it!They fly without any problems and we have to pay so much, I can't understand why? you know all info to transfer money! I will be here till the morning I am afraid to leave cafe and miss your e-mail,thank you ! and last bad news is that I will travel to you on sunday September 11 ,the same flight and the same time of my arriving! I had to change the date of my flight ,I couldn't get friday flight ,too many problems and I am just lost!
Love you and counting days and minutes before our meeting.
Million Kisses,
Your Nata!
I do hope to kiss you in real life in a few days and do hope it will be so warm and long kiss! maybe you will be tired of it????

Letter 9

Honey I think I am unlucky girl I have been to embassy and they don't allow to travel,they tell that I have to be married ,have a few childrens and many other things here in russia I could lose if I leave russia.and to get J-1 visa is impossible because I am not real student now.all other type of the visas are not possible to get with documents I have on my hand!to be fair I think everything works against me or it is just any money fraud from agency,of short I have only one way to visit you ,I have to return home to get documents that I am student of any hight shcool( it is not problem) and try to repeat my trip with all knowelege I have now.
I am so tired but I will do my best to arrange my trip I can't leave my dream so simply.
I will leave moscow in a few hours and I will write to you as I have the possibility!Kiss you ,you know that knowing you has made my life brighter!thank you for all,you are the best man I have ever met,it is the truth!Usually they want just to get my body and even can't imagine that I have the soul!Kiss again,see you soon Nata!
Please don't travel to airport because of not me there this time!Sorry!
