Letter(s) from Maria Alimkina to John (England)

Letter 1

Good day
Im Masha, I am 33 years old.
You have attracted me, as I would like to find a delicate, warmhearted, open and caring man who would encourage me and care about me for long. Wait your letter.

Letter 2

Hello my new friend,
I am so happy to see your letter and I would like to tell about myself in this email.
I am 33 years old. I am divorced and I have never had children. Have you been married? Do you have children? My job is not so interesting.
I work as a dentist in a little-known company but it is enough big for my city.
I have an enough average salary for Russia and not so small for my city.
If I would live in USA I think my salary would be like for people who live under the poverty line.
I live in the city called Urupinsk. It was built in time of the Cold War (1960-1970) like many small cities of the USSR.
After the collapse of the Union (the USSR) many monuments devoted to the Communist past were almost destroyed and the new dictator Putin has only the plan to build.
By the way, which political view do you have? I would like to have the democracy like in all west countries and USA.
I think so because only some rich people have power here in Russia and they sell all resources of our country stuffing their pockets.
Well, I do not want to talk about sad events. I would like that you would tell me about your country and city.
What interesting do you have in your life? What hobbies or interests do you have?
I love to cook the dishes of different countries, specially I like Italian pasta. If you have any interesting receipt, please send it to me.
I may try to cook it.
Well, I will finish my letter. I think I have told you enough about myself for now. If you have any questions, please write me.
I would be happy to reply.
Waiting for your soonest reply,
Regards,
Your Mariya.

Letter 3

Hello my dear friend,
I am so happy to see your letter again.
Today I would like to tell you a little about my job and my life. I have chosen my profession when I studied at school.
I had a toothache and the tooth did not want to fall. My mom and I decided to go at the hospital. I was so afraid.
There was no any good dentist clinic in my city and it was very painful for me when a doctor cured my tooth.
Then I give a promise to myself to be a dentist in future and do not allow people suffer from toothache which I had when I was 8 years old.
Then I finished Medical University and started to work in dentist clinic.
I was married a man who was not so decent. He begun to court me when I studied at the second course of the University.
He was 5 years older me. We married when I studied at the fifth course of the University and I was the happiest woman in the world.
That time I was young and naive. My husband attracted me with his experience, manhood and reliability.
he had a very good job in our local administration. We had a lot of money and he was very jealous and didn't allow me to go out without him.
During some years I was locked in our apartment and go out only 3-4 times per month. At the end of 2005 he had lost his job and begun to drink.
Sometimes he hit me when he was drunk. I could live with him during 1 years after time when he lost his job.
Even now when I remember him I think that I have lived in hell.
After divorce I was afraid to begin new relations and decided to focus on my job. I have found a medical company and I am still working here.
I am 33 years old already now. I am adult, well-educated and healthy woman who wants to find simple human happiness.
I want to find an adult and respectable man with whom I can start the serious relations.
From my life experience I do not attach great importance to the material condition of the man.
I think the most important is kindness, caring and trust.
Well I have told you about my life. I hope it was not so boring for you to read my letter.
I would like to know about your life, values and preferences for your soulmate.
I have attached my pictures. I hope you will like it. I would be happy to see your pictures too.
Your Mariya.

Hello my dear friend,
How are you?
Thanks for your photo you the very beautiful and attractive man.
In my last email I have told you about my job and not successful attempt to find happiness. Now I would like to tell you about my family.
I am the only child in my family. My mom raised me alone.
My father left my mother when she was pregnant and I never saw him again.
My mom said that he did not know about me, and I hope that he still is not the quite bastard and maybe he is even alive.
She doesn't like to tell about him that is why I know nothing about him.
I even do not ask any questions about him because I know it may sadden my mom.
My mom was the chief engineer in one of strategic enterprises and could provide us both.
Now she is retired and we live together.
I did not tell her that I have met a foreigner. I'm not sure that she can understand me because when she was young it was impossible to go abroad.
I may say some words about my city. There are not so many interesting places here because my city is very small (about 30 thousand people).
When I have free time I may go to the cinema. My favorite film is Titanik. I have watched this movie about 30 times.
From the last movies I liked Avatar. I was so surprised with the special effects and the beauty of that world.
By the way, my favorite producer is J.Cameron.
I like also cycling, swimming in the pool and outdoor's picnic.
By the way, my address is: Russian Federation, Urupinsk, Svastivkov street, house 13.
Is there something interesting in your city? What is your address?
Well, I should finish my letter for now. Today my mom has a angel day and I should cook holiday's dinner and clean the apartment.
Have a good day!!!
I kiss you!
Your Mariya.

Letter 5

Hello my dear beloved foreign friend!
How are you? I am ok and I have great mood!
I finished my last email that I wanted to cook for celebrating an Angel's Day of my mom.
I cooked a delicious dinner for her and she was greatly surprised.
I cooked a salmon baked with cheese and mushrooms in a foil. Everything was in their own juice. By the way, what is your favorite meal?
Today I worked and found out that I can get a long-awaited vacation in a couple of days.
When I divorced with my husband I lived in my "inner world" and never had a holiday.
My work didn't allow me to remember my last relations and helped me to forget this horror that I experienced.
I didn't take my vacation from 2006 and that is why I can allow myself to have a rest even for 6 months.
Therefore the head doctor said that the duration of the holiday would depend on my desire.
I have never been abroad and always had a desire to visit different countries. I decided to save money for my dream from 2013.
But I still didn't decide where I should travel.
There are a lot of countries which I watched by tv and read in Internet but I have no experience and worry a little bit about trip to foreign country.
Ok my dear foreign friend, I finish my letter for now.
Look forward to your response,
Have a great mood!
Your Mariya.

Letter 7

Hello my dear friend,
How are you today? Well, I thought for a long time and talked with my friends and colleagues.
I have told them that you and I am friends. I have told even my mom about you.
I was greatly surprised to hear that my mom is happy that we were corresponding.
She was happy to hear that I am open now and have found a friend. It doesn't matter even that you live so far from me.
So everyone has told me that I should travel to you. I agree with them =)
you could show me your country, your city, culture of people where you live and we could know each other better.
What do you think of that? And I think it is more save for me than to fly alone to unknown country for me.
I always wanted to visit your country, to see democracy and culture of your country.
I think we will spend time great together. Do you agree with me?
Looking for your email,
Have a good day and great mood!
Your and only your Mariya.

In travel agency I was told that I should go to the embassy.
I had to go to the embassy and had a conversation with the consul.
But I was shocked when he said that I shall not receive the visa!!!
He explained me that the main requirement in reception of the visa it to convince your authorities that I have no any intention immigration in your country. ( that i do not want to stay in your country forever while my visa is a tour visa).
The consul said that I could receive the visa I should buy the air tickets in both ends.
I tried to explain that I do not want to stay in your country forever.
Because that my mum here and I shall come back necessarily.
But he said that it's obligatory requirement and I shall receive the visa only when I shall show the air tickets in both ends.
Dear I haven't enough money for the return ticket!!!
I mean I need to buy the round way tiket. I asked my friend But she can't give it to me, unfortunately.
