Letter 1

Hi Greg.
It's me Marina.
Sorry I couldn't write to you earlier. I had some troubles with internet communication. Now I think everything is all right and I can write you some lines about me. I hope you glad to receive this my e-mail and you are still interested to know me better. Am I right? I think so because you have answered for my little note I have sent you some time ago to your profile on yahoo.personals. I know you want to know more information about me. I want to know you better too. But I want to let you know I don't have a lot of time to write long letter about me right now, I mean today. I think I will have more free time tomorrow and will write about myself in details, if you will want of course. I just want to ask you about some pictures of you, I would like to see them. I hope it's not hard for you. But please don't send large size pictures, because I have limit of internet time. I can't write you anytime during the day. I will send you my picture or maybe some pictures tomorrow.That's all about pictures. I hope you can understand me correctly and my english is not too bad for you. Now some information about me. I live in the country named Russian Federation or just Russia. My real name is Marina. I live alone already 4 year and I have a job. I am 26 years old and have no children. I am looking for the right man - soulmate to create my own family together with him. This is my main purpose for this period of life. I am not good in computers and I used help of my friend who know computers better than me to create my profile in the internet. So I am not sure that all information about me is correct and please don't be surprised of it. Maybe some information will be incorrect, but I think it's not a problem, because we can learn about each other and to know all necessary information about us via our corresponding. What you think about this words? Do you agree with my mind? Now I will finish my letter and will wait your response soon. Tomorrow, maybe today at the evening I will check my mailbox and will see for your letter, so I can see were you really interested in me or not. I hope you will answer and we will continue our corresponding. I was glad to write you. Hope you feel the same.
See you Greg!
Sincerely Marina.

Letter 2

Hi Greg.
I'm glad to hear from you but I'm sorry I couldn't respond soon because I didn't check my email at once. I am not sure but I think the difference of time between us is about 12-13 hours. I will try to check this information again. How often do you check your email? I'm the new person in computer and internet but it's so interesting for me and I try to know more about it. I will buy the book about how to use the computer and will learn because it's not so easy. Is it easy for you to use the computer?
How long are you online and how long time you have your profile in internet? Do you e-mailed many women? Do you e-mailed any russian women or they e-mailed you? What american people think about russians and russian women? This questions interested for me, please answer it, ok? There is a computer in my work so I decided to try to contact you because I registered on yahoo and have created my own profile with help of my friend. I already wrote about it in my previous letter. I tried to search the man who will love me, I wanted to meet the man and entered the criterion of selection. There were many many profiles! But I tried to find profile which will be good for me. And now I have your answer for my message and I am glad. And I want to let you know I write only to you at this moment, because I think I don't need to write to someone else if I already have one man who write me. I have chosen you because I must choose someone I'm interested and want to know him better. Probably millions people are in the internet and want to contact with someone but usually person choose one for corresponding. I'm glad that you answered for my letter and now we might start to know each other better. I think you interested to learn more about me, because I see you write me and this fact make me happy. I decided to use internet for searching the right person because there are many people and I'm interesting in international meeting because I had a bad experience with local relations. I decided to try to meet foreign man because I heard that a lot of women did it in all over the world. I think I have some chances to meet foreign man of my life because I can write, speak and understand english not bad. All people in our country learn english since 10 years old at school. Did you study any languages in school? So I can speak 2 languages russian and english. I'm looking for serious relationship including opportunity of meeting and maybe marriage in the future. My real name is Marina, my nationality is russian and I was born in russia, here in the city named "Noginsk" in 1978 so I'm 26 years old. I live here all of my life but if I will find man who will love me and I will feel the same I might leave my country and live with him in any place of this world. So I want to find the right man. And if you are far from me I think it's not a big problem because we live in the modern world and almost everyone can come to any place of this world by the plane or by the ship. I think we can have meeting if we will decide to do it but of course in the future because firstly we must know better each other. I like to travel but I'm not travel a lot and never has been outside of my country. I'm not trying to move to other country but I think it's possible and I will do it if I will want it of course! Can you tell me about yourself? Are you married? Or maybe you has been married in the past, I has been never married. Do you have children? I still have no any children, but I want. What is your work and how much do you earn per month?
I work in the financial sphere. I am the tax inspector and work in tax management or tax inspection. I work very hard. Because many people here are evading from the taxes and I have a small wage. I believe my words may sounds funny but it's true. In previous letter I sent you picture. Here is another picture of me. I wold like to listen answers for this questions. How long you have profile in internet and what are you looking for? Do you correspond with many women? Did you correspond with russian women or did they e-mail you before? What do you think about russians? What is your marital status? Do you want to learn about me more?
I hope I asked not a lot of questions? You can ask me the things you want to know also and I will try to answer you. I hope it's enough today.

From russia Marina.

Letter 4

Hello Greg!
I am glad to receive your picture, thank you very much.
I hope you glad to receive my letter today! I was glad when I received your letter. Do you know, we have winter here? What the season and weather where you live right now? We have a lot of snow and the weather is very, very cold here now. Temperature is about -40C. All people put on very warm clothes. In the some places of our country the temperature may be about -70C. It's extremely cold!! I even can't imagine how is cold there!!! br-r-r-r!!! People say that champagne is freezing in the twinkling of an eye! I don't know how people can live there. What you think about it? Could you live there or it's very cold for you? Just curious, no more. I am not sure and don't know about measurements in your country and therefore I wrote temperature in Celsius. I hope you can understand it correctly. In our country we use the metric system of measurements.
What the system use in your country? Now I want to let you know some information about me and my town. I as you know I live in Noginsk. This is the central part of east siberia. Do you know where is this Greg? I attached the map with this letter and I think now you can see where my town is locating. My town is small and I can say that my town is young town. The population is about 20 thousands of people. We have one museum, one theater, and one little cinema, two libraries and 2 fitnes club, some of bars and cafes and one restaurant. Our town is locating on the coast of river named Tunguska. Did you heard about tungus meteorite? It had fallen not far from the Tunguska river. There are many threes was burned and nothing is grow there now. We have not good ecological situation in out region, because we have a lot of industrial factories and it's affecting to ecology. Therefore I trying to live healthy, I like the sport and I have a plans to change area for a living in future. But I just don't know when it's will be happen. Maybe soon or maybe I will need to wait long time. But all this time I will try to do all I can, to look well.
Greg what the ecology situation in your area? What can you tell me about place where you live? I have a good job and I like it. But before I could work I have studied in university. It was Krasnoyarsk university. I have studied at financial faculty during 5 years. After 10 years of studing at school of course. And I have diploma. What is your education? and how long you studied? How long you studied in shool. Just curious.
I want to ask you how you selected your profession. Did you already know that you would want work for this profession? Always I have knew that I want to work in financial sphere and all the time I have interested by economics and management. I am glad that my interest was useful and I my work deliver me a pleasure. What you may say about your work? Do you feel the same or not? I would be glad to know this about you. Ok, I will finish my letter now. I will send you another letter tomorrow and will tell you about my hoobies and interests and will send picture of me. And I will wait your letter in my mailbox with impatience, becasue from your letters I can know you better. I hope I will get your letter soon. Bye my friend Greg.
Can I call you "my friend" Greg?
From Marina.

Letter 5

Hello Greg.
How are you feeling today? I hope you are well. I'm fine! I have a great mood today since the morning! I have got up, taken a shower and drunk a cup of Indian tea.
Do you like to drink tea in your country, Greg? We, Russians, like it very much. Russian people like tea even more than coffee. This situation looks like a tradition now. I know that in China there is an ancient tradition to drink tea and here in Russia we love tea too. I think this habit have started in our country many years ago. As you know Russia was a soviet country and was called USSR. At that time we had big problems with food in our shops. We had a deficiency of food. For example, for butter, meat and more other kind of food our government gave out the limited amount of coupons to people that they can get some food. It was very bad time. It was a crisis in our country. But we had good relations with some countries which called by our friends. One of those counties was India and there always were packs of Indian tea on the shelves of food shops. I think since that time our people like to drink tea in any time of a day. Tell me what do you like to drink? But the coffee became more and more popular in our life at last time.
After drinking a cup of tea I have cooked the soup with a meat under the recipe of my mom. It is a very good thing to eat soup in the middle of the day, in the other words, at the dinner. You could ask me why it's good? I tell you that it's good for our stomach. Medics can say to you the same thing. That's why I recommend you eat such food at the dinner. I like to cook very much, especially when I have a great mood. And it's very pleased to the cook when people eat your dishes with good appetite! So may be sometime I can cook for you, Greg! I have watched TV program today and I have found out that in the evening on TV have to be a good movie in the romantic style on the 1st channel of our television! I will watch it! Because as you know I like romantic movies! We have a few channels on our television. How many channels do you have? What do you like to watch on TV? What movies? What kind of women do you like? What women are there in your country? I have heard that American women want to make great career and they don't like to take a work at the household. I think that a career is good but woman haven't to forget about the house. But may be in your country they think different. I want to ask you what do you want to find in the character of a woman of your dream? What would you love in a woman Greg? What are the main qualities that you would want to find in your woman? How do you think it would be hard to me to find a job in a country such as yours? In our country it's rather difficult and such job is paid not good. At least it's not enough for a normal life. A lot of people have a little wage and the conditions of their life is very low here. It is a bad situation and our government do nothing to improve this situation. Therefore there are many people who are not glad especially last time, because the government want to decline some of privileges. This situation will mostly affect on pensioners. Now you can see a little more about the life in our country. I will wait for your next e-mail and I want you to tell me more about yourself. I have sent a picture for you today. You can see my another friend and me on it. Her name is Maria. We took this picture some days ago at the party. It was the Day of the tax inspector and we have celebrated this in the dance club. But picture was made in the hall. Now some more details about myself. I can't let you know about all details but I am trying to tell you about everything. I hope we will know each other better. Usually I write you after my work when I am in the internet cafe. It's not very expensive to write to you. But sometimes I write at home or at my work and save my letters to a diskette. Then I go to cafe to send it to you. I think e-mail is a good thing. Many people can exchange letters via the internet quickly. I am glad that this thing is available. The postal office is more slow way to write. When I am reading your letters I try to read it in English. I don't use translators. Sometimes if I don't know some word I take a dictionary and look for the translating of this word. As you know I write only you. You are my first man from another country who I write. I don't remember did I tell you about date of my birthday? My birthday is 28 of November. I was born in Russia in the city called Noginsk on the 28th of November in 1978 and I live here now. I like to celebrate my birthday and if the people make the presents for me at this day, it's great! But you know that I like to receive the presents from people who love me and when they give me their presents personally! I don't like the congratulatory parcels or using the delivery services or mail services because I appreciate friendly and family relations. But more I like to make presents to people I love, for example to my mom and my friends. When I was young I had a big pie from my parents and they inserted and lit the number of candles which was my age at this day. It was great! Please tell me about your birthday and events of it. How do you celebrate your birthday? How many friends and relatives do you invite to your celebrating? I don't remember did I say to you about it or not? But if I will repeat please excuse me. I can play guitar very good and piano but still not very well! What kind of musical instruments can you play? Greg can you tell me what the prices in your country? For example the bread costs 7-8 rubles here, the juice (1 Liter) costs about 30-40 rubles. Milk costs about 9-30 rubles. The dinner costs about 200-400 rubles at the good restaurant, in a cafe - up to 100 rubles. More details about me are here: I am repeating again, I'm 26 now and it's age when the woman gets the beauty and the femininity, at least it's considered here in Russia. Many people could be surprised that I haven't any boyfriend or the potential husband at my age but it's so. I just had a bad experience of relations with man in my past and I don't want to tell about it right now. Maybe I will tell you about it later if you will want to know about it. That's all for now. I think I will write you tomorrow and will tell you more about me.

Letter 6

Good day my friend Greg.
How is your day? I hope good.
I want to let you know about some thing. I don't understand what was wrong with me or with my computer but I have lost all your letters you already sent me. I have thought I saved it, but I don't have it right now. I have more free time now and I want to answer your questions, but now I haven't it now, and therefore I want to ask you: please ask me again what do you want to hear about me, ok? I think I have already answered some questions and now you know me better. I think you can ask me questions which I still didn't answer. I hope you can understand my situation and can forgive me for it. Now my computer works correctly and I think I don't need to afraid of losing your letters again. I believe it will not happen again. But anyway I will tell you more about me today. I think you would like to hear about it. I hope you will write me back soon. Yesterday in the evening I have thought about our correspondence. I have heard that a lot of women and men exchange e-mails and meet each other from different countries. I have already told you about it before but I remember it again because we have the same situation Greg. I think that an international correspondence is a great thing because it unifies many people and nationalities together. What do you think about it Greg? I'm very peaceful woman and I want peace in this world. I hate war and terrorism. I don't remember did I tell you that I am an orthodox Christian? When I am in church I pray for peace in this world. I go to church 2-3 times per month. I think that the God have to be in the heart and in the head of every man or woman. I hate lie and I like when the people are open as I told you. I'm optimist and I always think that everything will be ok. It make my mood better and gives the power for my living. Today is a cold weather and there is -20C today but the sun is shining in the sky. How is the weather there at your place today? As you already know Noginsk is not a very good place to live because there are many manufactures of different types of industry and it influences on the ecology. We have a lot of crime here and our militia can't control this situation. I think I will decide to leave this place and will travel to other place for a living because I have the desire and the power for this purpose. I want to live in more warmer place also. Maybe one day I will come to the other country for a living as many resolute women and may be some day we'll meet in real Greg? It'll be wonderful! But I don't want you to think that I want to leave my city for a finding a rich man or other same reason. I know that I can work and provide for myself but I want to love my future husband. As a woman I couldn't be alone. I think you understand what I'm talking about. So I want to be with a man who will love me and who I will love too. It's my dream now. I think if it is so I will be the happiest woman in this world! I'm trying to know more about you Greg because I'm interested in our acquaintance. I don't want to impose the opinion but who knows maybe we'll be pleased to meet and maybe more. It's a real thing. I think so because it's not hard to come to you Greg but I know we must learn more each other day by day. What do you think about it Greg? I ask you to write me all of your thoughts because I like to be open mind and I like when the people speak truthful what they think. I think if we will decide to meet each other in the future it will be great! Now it is too early to speak about it serious but it's interesting for me and I want to know what do you think about it? When I was studying at the school I have a girlfriend who named Svetlana and when she was 27 she e-mailed with an American man and then she have come to the United States to Michigan. I haven't contact with her because we are not very close friends but maybe someday she will e-mail me. I think she have found the right man for her because she lives there. The Russian women are not aspire to career, they just want to be loved and make everything for their husbands. I think that it's the Russian mentality and they are very hardworking women. But the men in Russia are not too good. Maybe that is why many women of our country look for the foreign husbands. I think it's a great union when a foreign man and a Russian woman are together! At least I think so. What do you think Greg? Maybe I'm not completely right... I finish my letter today and I hope to hear from you Greg as soon as possible! I have attached my another picture to this letter. This picture was taken at the day of tax inspector on the party. I already have wrote you about it in my previous letter and have sent you the picture of my friend and me. It was the same party.
Yours Marina.

Letter 7

Hi Greg! Thank you very much for picture you sent me today. I like to receive it from you.
You asked me:
Is your religion Russian Orthodox?
You are right. I already wrote you about it.
Hello my far away friend! Finally I have the possibility to write you! Today is hard day for me. As you know I work by the tax inspector. I receive and register profit’s declarations. Here in Russia it is necessary to report about our profits for the last year till the 1st of April. That’s why everybody wishes for be in time to report till this date. This procedure is very time-consuming and labor intensive. I spend several hours to receive and check authenticity and accuracy of document’s filling. It is very important because of the sum of taxes depends of it. And in the future the pension’s sum of taxpayer depends of it too. I have to be very attentive and don’t make mistakes. My work is difficult but I like it very much. Last evening I have watched a very intriguing translation about the animals on TV. I like animals very much and that’s why I have watched it with the pleasure. The beauty and elegance of animals are amazing. Especially I liked snowy leopards. At the first look they are seems to be nice and sweet cats but really they are strong and reckless predators capable to kill a prey much more bigger than themselves. But basically I like every animal except reptiles. Snakes and lizards inspire the fear to me. I cannot come near a snake even if it is not toxic. In my childhood when my dad was alive our family went out of our town often. At surroundings of my town there are many beautiful places. One day I was going for a walk near a creek and saw a snake. It was not toxic but I didn’t know it. I was very afraid of it and ran away. After that I was near to my parents all the day and I imagine snakes in every stick in the grass. All wild animals are beautiful in their own fashion but they can be dangerous for men. That’s why I prefer to spend my time with pets. I like birds very much especially canaries and parrots. Canaries sing very good in the mornings. Also I like dogs and cats dogs more. They are the most faithful and loyal human friends. When I was a little girl we had a dog called Rex. It was a big dog and I had ride Rex like the horse. Rex was very kind and cheerful dog. I like to play and go for a walk with it. Unfortunately dogs get old more faster than people and Rex has died 10 years ago at the age of 12. Now I have no dog but want to have one. Pets require much time and care. But now I spend very much time at my work. Do you like pets or animals Greg? If it is so what of it?
Today I have attached two pictures of me at this autumn for you Greg. I will wait for you next letter with great impatience! Till next letter Greg!
Sincerely yours Marina.

Letter 8

Hi my dear friend Greg!
How are you there?
You asked me:
What did you study at the university?
Yes. I already wrote you about it earlier in my last letters.
Do you work for the government?
Yes. I work for government.
So April 1 is the Russian tax day?
How long ago did your father pass away?
I wrote you about it too. Did you forget? He died 7 years ago.
Do you live with your mother?
Did you read my letters. I wrote you about it. I live alone.
You asked about pictures you sent me.
You sent me 4 photos.
I was glad to get your picture today. Thanks. I liked it.
Thank you for you last letter. My heart is beating faster when I open my email box!
Guess why? Cause I am waiting of your letter Greg! When I see your new letter in e-mail box my mood rises! And you? At this moment I have some free time from my work and I decide to write you. Now I am sitting at my workplace at my computer and writing you. I hope that I have enough spare time now to write you long letter. Can you tell me about your usual day's routine Greg? I want to describe to you my day completely, since morning and till the night.
At 6.30 a.m. I wake up by helping the alarm clock and go to the bathroom. I wash and clean my teeth. Then I dress for my morning jog and go to the streets. I think that It's good for any people to keep themselves healthy in the good form. After morning run I take a shower. Near at 7.20 I go to the kitchen and cook my breakfast. Usually I have ready dish for breakfast, since the evening of last day and at the morning I just warm it up. Quickly and conveniently. After the breakfast at 7.40 I go to my work usually on foot but if it rains or snows I go by bus or train. I like to walk before working to breath of fresh air and dispose myself on the work. Do you like to walk Greg? I get to my office in 15 minutes if I walk and if I go by transport - in 5 minutes. How long do you get to your job? Almost forget, before entering the office I go to the nearest Internet cafe to receive your letter. Since about 8.00 - 12.00 I work at my workplace. Then about 12.00 I go to home or the cafe to take a break for a dinner. then usually 12.50 I am at my workplace again. Do you have dinner break at your work and if you do how long does it take Greg? Since 13.00 - 18.00 I work hard cause we have a time for our clients - people come to us for a consulting. About 18.30 I get home and take a shower. You can ask me why is my way to home takes so much time? Cause after work I wait my friend Vera and we go to home together. She live near my home. Sometimes we go through the town park to calm down cause our clients make me nervous especially in the end of the month. I hope you are not nervous at your work Greg. After taking a shower I have a supper at about 19.30 when I cook tasty dishes - I like to cook a lot! After that usually I read books, listen to the music, watch TV or talk with my friends on the phone (or personally). I go to bed at 23.0 but in some cases a little later because of interesting film or a book. What time do you usually go to sleep? I fall asleep very quickly since my childhood.
At this time my day finishes. So my usual day passes.
Have a nice day Greg.
Yours Marina.
P.S. I have almost forgotten that I have attached to this letter picture from my workplace.

Letter 9

Hi my dear friend Greg.
I am so glad that we found each other Greg and now we can correspond together. It's great thing. We can learn more about each other and do it more quickly than some years ago because the internet helps us. Thanks the God that we have thing like the internet. Today is not work day. I went to my mom to see her and I have been near internet cafe. I decided to write you some of lines of this message. I hope you will be glad to hear from me at this weekend. I don't know did you already write me or still not? because I didn't check my mailbox, I only have wrote you this letter. I just want to say you, I think of you at this days and will think of you my dear Greg. I will write you at Monday. If you want, you may write me at weekend and I will get your letters at Monday. I would be glad to see your e-mails in my mailbox when I will check it at Monday.
See you soon Greg!
Your Marina.

Letter 10

Glad to see you my dear friend Greg!
You asked me:
what do you look for in a man?
I want to find man who will be tender, honest, who can take care about her woman, who will have sense of humor and who will have understanding.
What makes you think that I am the right man for you?
I think time and our corresponding will show it.
How are you today? I hope you are fine. How was your weekend? Did you do something interesting? I had ski walking with my friends. The weather was some warmer and we decided to go to a forest to get a ski walking. Near our town we have a good little forest. We like to ski there at free time. There are a lot of people who were skiing here. We had a very good time with fun and a lot of laugh. Nevertheless we had frozen a bit in the end of our walking because we had spent in the forest almost all day till the evening. The temperature was about - 20 C. Usually weather here is more cold. But this days the climate was good for this time of winter and we had already decided to go to ski. Almost all of my friends like skiing. In the winter we have a lot of snow here. About 1-1,5 high meters high of snow. Can you imagine this Greg? Did you see so big amount of snow at your place. My friend Greg, I would like to tell you about my relations with men in the past. I want to let you know that I had not good experience of my relations. It was not easy for me and I don't like to remember about it. But I think I don't need to hide anything from you and we need to have clear and truthful relations. I think you need to know about it. I hope you will evaluate my openness to you Greg. I want to let you know that most of Russian men here are not very kind, not very delicate. They don't have good manners. Most of men are brutal, rude, vulgar and haughty. Almost every man here is heavy drinker and drink a lot of alcohol drinks, especially Vodka. It's national feature. If you could learn our history you could see that all the time in Russia men drank a lot of Vodka. I don't like it at all! It's not a secret that I had a man and I had relations with him. First time I had fallen in love in the school. But we became apart after a little of time because we were young and we could not have serious relations. He left our town, and I heard nothing about him at all. After school I had entered to the university and found a great guy. At least I thought that he was a great guy. We spent good time together. He was kind and funny man, he had a good sense of humor. But after some time I found out he had another girl and hide this fact from me. It was a big blow for me. He had made hurt to my heart. I was so upset and I had a depression. It was a very difficult time for me. Then I decided never meet with men for relations. I was in bad condition. But time heals the wounds and even wounds of soul. And after two years I met a new guy who liked me and I liked him. He seemed a romantic and kind person. He took care about me and respected me. We did everything together (cooked, walked to shops, had walking at the evening, cleaned apartment and more other things). But after some time, he began to drink. He has drunk a lot and our relations began to become more bad. He had stopped to take care about me and we had a lot of quarrels. He became to desecrate and to beat me. I had let him know to leave me alone. In opinion - there are no good Russian men. And I don't want to have any relations with Russian men. Now I have decided to find a man in another country who will try to love me. I don't think that I am so bad that men can't love me. If you want to tell me about your experience in relations with American women you can tell me about it. I don't want to insist. Only if you want. Now about sex a little. I hope it's not a problem to talk about sex to me? I just want to let you understand that I don't want to hide anything from you and want to tell you about me in more details. I hope these my words will not make you upset. I hope I will not do something wrong when I will tell you about sex? I hope you will understand me. I understand that it's very intimate theme, but I think we need to know more about us if we want to continue our relations. Do you agree with me? I hope you do. I want to let you know that I can make love only with the man I love. I can't and don't want to do it with everyone. Therefore I didn't have sex about 2 years. I want to tell you , I don't like anal sex, sadism and masochism. By the way I like oral and normal (usual) sex. I don't like sexual orgies and group sex. But I like to try something new in sex relations and I like some experiments. Do you like it or you are a conservative person in this question? I don't like gays and lesbians. I want to ask you: what is the situation that you have there at this point? I mean bisexual relations. What do you think about it? Tell me what are your minds about this letter. I think maybe we can be more than just friends. After every day and every letter from you I miss you more and more and want to see you more stronger. Do you feel the same? I hope you will write me back soon. I will wait for your response Greg with great impatience!
I will miss your letter Greg!
Your Marina.

P.S. Here is a picture of me for you. I hope you will like it. You can see my mom, me and my friend Nadezhda. She works in the food shop

Letter 11

Hi my dear Greg!
How is you today? I am fine and hope you are fine too. The weather today is even better than at weekend.
The air temperature is about -18C. It's warm temperature for this season here and I am glad. We have a llittle amount of warm days in the winter here and therefore almost all people here are glad every man wants to enjoy every day of the good weather. Everytime when the weather is fine and warm I have a good mood. As you know I live in the Siberia and our climate is cold almost all the time of a year. You know that our climate is not a last bad thing here. The ecology is not good too cause Noginsk is the one of russian industrial zones. Therefore we have a lot of giant factories here. They influence on our ecology and the nature around us. I already mentioned about it earlier in my letters. It's another reason why I want to leave this area and go to another region or maybe to another country. I just want that my children could be healthy. You know that I am very serious when I think about health at all and that’s why I’m trying to live healthy life. And I want it for my children and for my own future family too. I hope you will agree with me in my thoughts. What you think about it? Can you let me know about your thoughts of this situation? I am very interested to know your minds. I want to know your sight - how do you see your family at all? Maybe I express my thoughts not correctly but I mean what the family would like to have? I think the creation of the family is the one of the greatest steps in whole life of every man. What you think about it? Do you agree with me? I ask you this questions because it's very important for me. I hope you will understand me and will answer me very frankly. From my side I will let you know about my mind of this question. As I said the creation of the family is very important for me and I try to make it very seriously. I consider that the family is loving and taking care of each other, parents, a healthy life style, a good relations in family, the understanding and the trust in family and of course the children. Now you can see the family I dream. I will do all what I can to make my dream by reality. I know that I will give all my forces and my time for my husband, for my family and for my children. It's most important things for me in me life. That’s why all this days I thought about development of our relations and the cognition of each other. It's very important thing for me because I'm interesting in knowing you Greg! I know that the best way to know each other is a real meeting. I think you will agree with me. Yesterday when I have come after work, I’ve tried to listen to my heart and my mind about future. As you know I try to be open and I want to tell you about my thoughts. I hope you understand me. Greg, you are very interesting man for me and I want to meet you in real cause I feel that I begin to fall in love with you. I really want to come and meet you and speak about all things! Who knows maybe it's the destiny and we’ll develop our relations to another level. I think it's a real thing to meet each other and it's the right way. Because you know that I write to you for knowing more about you and I want to find the man who will love me with all your heart and who I will love also! Who knows maybe you could become such a man! I hope I don't frighten you, I'm not persuasive woman and if you don't want to meet me you may tell it to me but I hope you want our meeting. I think we’ll be very glad to meet each other face to face and to talk in real time! I know that if you want I could come to you! Is it great? I have asked today about things for coming into your country and it's real things, if you will agree for my coming - I will come. Please tell me Greg, have I to be going to come? Of course you could come here but our city have many defensive industry and you must get many permitting documents for coming here. I think the best way for meeting each other is my coming to you, what do you think? Please be open with me and tell me everything. If you will be glad to meet me in your country I will make an application for visa reception as soon as possible and I will get it. I have asked about this things today and there is no any problems because I'm honest and have never broke the law moreover I work for government and it will be more easy for me to come to your country. And I remembered about old school girlfriend Dasha who had left our country and now live in Arizona, I didn't tell you about it earlier( I just forgot), but I remember about it yesterday. I think I had picture of me and her. If I will find it I will send it to you. We are not communicating already 3 years. She didn't write me and I have lost her address. I can't write her. Maybe if she would write me I could give you her address and you could talk to her or talk to her husband. I know that everything is all right with her and she had found a good husband there. I know about it because I have saw her sister and she have said to me these things. And more I like to travel and I will be very glad to come to visit you Greg, to see your country and city, I will be very glad to hear your stories about this things and many many other things, I'm sure it will be very interesting for us! I feel that I like you much and I want to be with you now here or there. I know that I could meet you and I want to hear your answer about this important question in your next e-mail.
I’ve attached a picture of me. I am smiling for you. I hope you will like this picture.
Love, Marina.

P.S. If you want to write letter I will glad. But please don't send any packages. We have bad mail service and many packages from foreign countries usually are lost. We think some people just stealing different sendings. It's bad very bad situation but it's true. I hope you can understand. I said it because I worry about it very much and I don't want, you would lose something!!!

Letter 12

Hi my lovely Greg!
You asked me:
When would you come? Would it be easy for you to travel?
I am not sure right now. I need some time to find out all necessary information about the opportunity to visit you in your country. I hope you can understand me.
How long would you stay?
I think I can stay for a long time. I think we will discuss about it together. Today the weather is cold here again. Temperature is about - 27C. There is no sun in the sky because it is cloudy but your e-mails are the rays of sun in this gray world for me! Your letter made me warmer. I am very glad and happy to hear from you today Greg!
Your e-mails always make me feel better. I think that you are glad to receive my e-mails too and I hope you feel the same. I have attached another pictures for you, one of this pictures was made last autumn by my friend. Other picture was made last summer, when I have been in the Ukraine. On the first picture I am standing on the ladder on the second you can see the girl I have met in the Ukraine and me. I am in cyan bikini. I hope you will like these pictures. I want to tell you that you are a very good person for me. I have read your letters and I like you more and more with every next day. I don't know about future, but I think that sometimes people don't use the chances which the destiny gives them. I think that all people have chances to build the future earlier or later but they have to learn to use it, what do you think Greg? Yesterday before I gone to sleep I thought about us so much and I understood that I falling in love to you. With every day you take more and more space in my head. And I think about you constantly. I had a dream and in my dream I saw you Greg! All the night you was in front of my eyes. When I got up I thought about it and I believe it's not by chance. I want to tell you that I really sense the feeling to you. And I want to let you know that we need to meet each other. Don't you think so? Our meeting will be great thing in our lifes. Do you agree with me? I have insuperable wish to meet you in person. I believe it can be possible! This is real thing! I think if we will want it we need to have meeting. I believe our meeting will help to know us better and more coloser! I'm sure that I would like to meet you Greg. I feel that you have become more closer to me. I tell you all about my life and I will tell more if you will ask. I feel that you have become more than just a friend to me and I want to tell you three words of love. But you must know I want to tell you it now! I had a dream about our meeting! I really want to know you, speak to you, take your hand and see your eyes. Maybe it's very frankly now but it's true and I don't want to hide it. I always say the true and don't like when people lie. I hate it! My girlfriends and my mother have said me that I must tell it you if it's true. They will be happy if I’ll find my love. By the way they say you hello Greg! I think we have a chance to try to be closer Greg! I think we have to try to use this chance. Perhaps it's a destiny! I'll wait for your answer with impatience, you must know I think about you now! I want to tell you Greg that you are my love, I trust you and I tell you about my feelings. I want to tell you about everything what is in my heart and in my head now. I don't know how write it in words but I try to explain it to you now and I hope you can understand me Greg. Today here is a cold wind but thoughts about you make me warm, I feel that you are my favourite. My heart beats faster when I dream about our meeting in future. Yesterday, last night I had a dream about us. It was a wonderful dream. We were together and have spoke a lot. I don't remember where we were, but it was not important for me. I have felt your breath and it was the happiest moment in my life, it was so real... Then we came to house, we had a dinner with candles. Then we came to bedroom, but it was the final moment that I remember. Then I woke up, I was so warm and my heart was beaten very often. I understood it was only a dream, but it was so real... I think this dream has an important value for me. Maybe it's a sign? I don't know. But I really know that I love you with all my heart, Greg! I would really want that the last dream I have seen would be real someday! Would you want it Greg? I LOVE YOU!!!!!!! I WANT TO TELL YOU ABOUT IT PERSONALLY, I WANT TO SEE YOUR FACE AND SEE YOUR EYES IN PERSON AND WANT TO TELL YOU: I LOVE YOU AND IT'S TRUE!!! Today at the evening after work I will go to the church and put a candle for us and for our relations. I will pray and will ask about our meeting Greg. I will pray the God and will open my heart and will show him my thoughts and my feelings to you, like I do it now in this letter for you Greg. I hope he will help us. Because he can see that my intentions are clear. My heart is yours Greg, I tell it to you because I trust you and I never lie. I tell you about my feelings and I'm sure you must to know about it. I have not thought that it will be so soon again, but I feel it to you, Greg, and I am so happy ! I think we have to meet, I know how to do it. I will think and will figure out about it, I think about you as my man in future but we must know each other better for it. I know we must meet and be with each other.
