Letter(s) from Elena Volkova to Donn (USA)

Letter 1

Donn, hello! Thank's for your reply so much!!! I hope soon I will be able to come to your area and we will meet each other!
Thank you for great pics!!!!
This time I will write you more about myself. I think you should know more about my life and my hobbies so you will know if we have any common interests.
So you already know my full name. I'm 25 years old, not that young I think? My birthday is November 24. I'm 168 cm tall (5.6.) and 51 kg weight (about 120 pounds, I'm not sure how much it is in pound but I'm not fat!). I don't know exactly my bust-waist-hips measurements, I don't have a reason to measure it because I think it's OK and my body is proportionate )) I take care of my body, I do aerobics three times a week and two times a week I go to the swimming pool twice a week. I have a younger sister. She is 17 years old now. Also I have an older sister, she is 27. We live with our parents in 2 room apartment, my oldest sister lives with here husband, she is pregnant now.
As I wrote you I live in Russia. The name of my city is Cheremkhovo, it's near Irkutsk city. Cheremkhovo is very small and Irkutsk is a large city, the main city in our district. Have you ever heard about the lake Baykal? It's near Irkutsk! It's the deepest and cleanest lake in the whole world. It's very beautiful!
I graduated from Irkutsk Humanitarian University two years ago, contemporary dance faculty. Yes we have such faculty in Humanitarian University! So I'm a professional dancer. I don't want to have a dancer's career because I will have not much time for my private life and for relationship with a man. I work as a dance teacher, I teach children from 12 to 17 years how to dance! Also I have a certificate of fitness instructor, this is my another hobby. So it would be perfect if later I will find a work as instructor or teacher of dances!!! I think it's a very good job for a woman, I'm always in a good shape and I keep myself not that busy!
Do you know how to dance? If not I can teach you!
When I come to your city I will work as a waitress in a restaurant. I would like to work as a
dance teacher but I think you understand it's not possible to arrange such work by Internet because they want to see how well I dance.
Anyway I will try to find such work when I come over there.
I'm sending few photos for you today! I hope you are not tired to look at my photos? The first one is me in bathing suit at the Black sea. The next one is me with my sister. Her name is Veronika, she finished school this year and entered the University. I'm happy my parents will be not alone when I leave the for another country. Of course I will miss everybody but I want to have my own happiness! Also I'm sending a pic with another sister Victoria, she is 27 years old, she is married, I think she is very lucky to find a good man here, I'm not as lucky as her!
Ok, the next pic is me in the mountains, you know we have many mountains in Russia and my father is an alpinist (but now he is retired already), so my sister and me love to go to the mountains with my father!!!!
In winter I like skiing, although we have cold winters... our summers are warm usually.
The next pic is my father, my sister and me. It was taken few years ago, you see I look younger there and my sister (it's the youngest sister) too ))) Both of us color our hair to blond. The natural color is fair. I hope that's not a problem for you or you like natural color of hair? My father is 56 years old now, my mom is 44 (the next pic is me with my mom at Irkutst theatre). You see my mom is much younger then my father and they are very happy together. My mother is a teacher of music in the school. That's why I have another hobby - music! You can see me on the last pic near the piano. I finished music school and I still play piano almost every day. So this is another way to have a work - I can be music teacher.
I like classic music, jazz, rock, lounge. I like music at all!
I want to try how to ride a motorcycle someday! I've never tried it!
Do you have an International Airport in your city? Please write me it's name an code. Or write me the name of the nearest Airport to you.
I write you my emails from Internet cafe, I don't have my own computer.
If you want I can call you when I'm in Moscow, it would be nice to talk to you. We don't have international calls here. I suppose in few days I will leave for Moscow and start my trip! Today I will tell my parents about you, I'm sure they will be happy that someone is waiting for me over there!
There is no any messenger in this Cafe so we can only keep emailing each other. I hope you are not getting bored to read my emails?
My address here is Russia, Cheremkhovo, Chekhova 16 street, flat 3.
So now you have a representation of who I am....
I just can tell you that I enjoy life and I try to live to the fullest, I like to try new things. I'm not that smart.. I was not that good in mathematics, physics, biology and so on! I don't like to be smart! But I'm very tender, caring, artistic, faithful, decent person.
Sometimes I can be not well organized, I think everybody had it's own minuses and pluses.
I don't look any special qualities in a man. I just hope he will be faithful to me and ready to create a happy family with me and I will do everything to make him happy. I'm looking for a soulmate!

OK... it's time to finish my email. I'm sending a kiss by the wind to you and if I sent it to the right destination you should receive it by evening )))) I hope you will catch my kiss somehow )))


Letter 2

I just want to add few things... I think last time I wrote you not all my thoughts... My mind is always in a mess when I write you because it's hard to write everything to somebody who is so far away. I don't remember if I wrote last time I've never been married, don't have kids but I love them and they love me! I wrote you I teach children how to dance and I know how to understand their wishes and worries. I don't smoke, drink occasionally.
And I want to tell you that I always wanted to find an older man.
Why? I have two answers..
Firstly, I think older men are much more serious and they can take care of me, they are more experienced in life and can teach me many things. Have you heard a saying "The older the violin, the sweeter the music"? I believe in it... I think I'm not that young already but I don't have much experience in life and I want to have someone who has more experience in life then me.
Secondly... maybe I'm not right about it... but I want to be honest I've always had such worry... if I marry a man nearly my age... and after some years I will become not that young and beautiful... I think it's more hard for a woman to be attractive then for a man... and he will find a younger mistress and I will become very miserable. I don't want my man to be unfaithful. I know I can be faithful to my man and I will never cheat on him.
But this is just my worries. This is not my goal. Please tell me if you think you will love your woman at any age and not find a younger one? Can you be faithful?
And sorry my profile was not accurate. Honestly I thought it will be just like a joke to post my profile, I just wanted to try if my English is well enough to talk to someone from another country and I wanted to know if I can communicate with foreign people. But now it's not just I want to try my skills... I became attracted to you and I really want to meet you. If you will not like me or something else we can be just friends.
I hope I will get my work visa soon in Moscow and all documents and come to you! I don't have any area limits with this visa so I can work where I want.
And one more thing.. i'm sending few pics of my city from different seasons so you can see where I live. The pic where you see the building with Russian flag is a place where I work as a teacher of dances.
I'm just trying to be honest with you and write you all my thoughts on different issues. Please be always honest with me also....
I hope to come to you before my birthday!
I will write you later, I will look if I have more nice photos to send you.
Have a good day!
