Letter(s) from Alena Sokolova to William (USA)

Letter 1

Hello!!!! Have a good day.I do hope you remember me because I wrote you recently and you replied to me.
I have met you on a dating site Cupid . I am sorry that I couldn't reply earlier.
You see I live in Russia and I was busy arranging all travel preparations . I was in Moscow to book my interiew for the trip to the USA, it took almost two weeks to travel to Moscow and back. You know that it is my first time I try correspondence with a man in a virtual space. I am not a very good user of the Intenet and I do hope that I will be lucky to meet a good man. I guess I need to explain why I do it.The thing is that I will work abroad for three months or so and I would like to meet a nice man to be my guide or just to be a good friend to spend time with while I am there. I suppose it is hard enough to live in some foreign town without friends and besides I have never been abroad. You know I've been liviving in a small town here in Russia all my life and I am just afraid to be lost.
Besides I would like to see a real life (not some TV shows) and it is impossible to see a real life without a person who knows all sides of the life. And you should also know that I don't want to live in Russia because I don't have any chances here,it is hardly possible to explain in a few words but I want you to know all my plans. While being in the USA I will be working in any shop or be babysitter in some family. I will know the details later.
Besides I love English language and being in the USA, it will give me a chance to improve my English.
The agency helps me to get the visa, work permission and all travel documents and they will help me to get a job.It is their business and I will pay for their service.One of my friend worked in USA for three months last year,and she was so pleased and she is going to repeat this trip again.
She has men right man in Chicago and they are good friends now and he is going to marry her if everything is all right between them.
I am coming to the USA due to the special programm for young people who want to work abroad and I think it is the right way for me. I am lost here, and hopefully I will be able to change my life. I am full of plans and different dreams. You should know that I have brown hair and brown eyes.I am sure that you will be not disappoined to meet me in the real life if we meet. At least I hope so. Well,I am finishing this letter and I do hope to get your reply pretty soon. Maybe after reading my letter yu will find me a little crazy but I am not sure I know the right way to meet
a good man without real meeting and you know it is my first try though the Internet.
I will leave my town in a few days or so to fly to Moscow again to complete all the things. It is said at the agency that I will work all day and I think we might share evenings together to get to know each other better. If you have any interest to meet me.
I will be
more than happy!!!

I just don't want to be alone in the evenings, and I would like to be sure in advance that somebody waits for me! It is just a woman wish!
I will tell you all the details about me and my life. If you're also single, you may be with me for a few months or so .... Who knows???!

With best regards from Russia

Natalya ( this my name )

Letter 2

Well, hello my dear!!!
It is me again. I cannot belive I am in Moscow already. It was a wonderful flight for me and everything went well. You know on the board of the plane I was given a galss of red wine and you know what? I have never had such tasty wine before.
Moscow us incredibly big city and it takes for abut few hours to get from one end of the city to another and the traffcit is horribly heavy here. Youknow even though Moscow is a capital of our big country, it is just like some country. Different people, life and the prices are very very high. People are very rude and angry, they always rush in a hurry and always trying to be cautious.
When I got off the plane and was waiting for baggage a policeman came up to me and asked me to show my passport. They are all crazy here because of the terrorism. I understand that they are cautious but still I think it is humiliating. I took a taxi from the airport. You know it is not like usual taxi, it is like a small bus. It takes about ten people and costs much less then a usual car taxi and besides this "bus-taxi" is very comfortable and the driver was very polite which happens seldom in Moscow.He even was telling us about Moscow and monuments while taking us down to the destionation. Life is very expensive here. I was shopping today buying some food and all every-day food costs a few times expensive then in my place. All the rest general things costs a lot of money too.
I rent a room in the appartment and an old woman asked me to be cautious when I fly ot the USA but I made up my mind and I will fly ot you and meet you because you are a kind and good man and won't do me any harm, I feel it.
I am sorry if my letter sounds starnge to you but everything is mixed up in my head and I am so excited about my trip. My feelings are overwhelming me.
I was also at the agency today and my trip information is not ready yet, but they promised I will have this info tomorrow. So, once again I need you to give me the name of the state and the exact full name of the airport because there are similar names of the airports in different states. I don't want to arrive in some other airport. I also need to know your full name and your full ltelephone number ( includng country code) in case we get lost or something.
Tomorrow I will write you with all the information. Excited??? Me too!!!
Well, I will cose this letter. Please write me as soon as possible.
See you soon!!!

Natalya with a great kiss from Moscow!!!

Letter 3

Hello again,
You know that I am in Moscow and I think I have already done almost the half of my trip preparations.
Everything is going so fast and I cannot believe I will be on the plane to come to you in a few days.
Frankly speaking I am very tired. Everything is not so easy as I thought it would be.
It is rather hard business because of many barriers in this item.
You even can't imagine how glad I am to meet you and I feel so great thinking about it.
And now I feel better to know that I will not be alone ethere in the USA.
I have some news about my trip.
This is the schedule of my flight. It is a round trip ticket because for getting visa in the Embassy I ust have a two-way ticket. That is the law.

------------------------------------

I am very glad to know that we are almost near our goal and our meeting is waiting for us in a few days.
I think I will call you from the airport and wait for you there in case you cannot be there in time to meet me. I shall wait as much as necessary.
It will not be a problem for me to wait for you because this will be the end of my long trip to you and besides I will have some time to go to the ladies' room and make myself look better after a long flight.
So you will see me in a good shape.
The tickets are booked already and I will buy them right before the interview in the Embassy
to get my visa. People from the Embassy must be sure that I am not going to your country some illegal way and stay there illegally, that is why my tickets should be two-way. That is the rule.
And honey, the problem is that I have some money but my flight from my home to Moscow costed a lot ( about 400$) and I had to give 100$ more to complete all travel papers and 30$ to open my visa.
Besides I have to pay for the room renting about 25$ every day ( I even don't have a telephone there), I told you it is a very expensive city.
The flight from Salehard to Moscow costed so much because the distance is too long.
It is my fault, I know. My parents told me to take the train but I so much wanted to get by plane because I have flied before.
Besides the flight tickets cost much more now because after the New Year the prices for the
gasoline got much higher. I need to buy the tickets before my interview because I told you that this is the rule before my visa issuance. Maybe you can borrow some money?
I cannot live here too long because every day I have to spend money for a living.
Even the cup of tea costs almost two dollars.
I think it is not too great amount of money I ask and I am sure I will be able to to the return
you the money back in a few weeks after my arriving. I will earn some money and first of all I will return you all the money back.
At the agency they told me that you can send the money by Western Union.
It is pretty easy to use their services. The manager of the agency explained me how this system works.
It is instant worldwide money transfer system.
All you need to know is my first name and my last name and also the address where to send the money.
Once you do this, I will be able to pick up the money in any local Western Union in office in Moscow.
We need to do very fast because we don't have much time till my interview.
If everything will be allright and I but the tickets, I will be on this flight and come to you!
You need to send me transfer info and MTCN ( money transfer control number) I will get the cash.
I kiss you many many times!!!!
I am tired so much today, you know it is very hard to live in such city alone.

So many different emotions...
See you soon, my darling!!!

Oh, silly me! I almost forgot to give you my full name and my address here in Moscow ( where I rent a room).
Country : Russia
City: Moscow
Address: Sovetskaya 24 kor.4 - 192
postal code (zip) : 117303
Full name: Natalya Sheveleva ( this is the right writing in English)

I have yet about 400 $ and I need about 950$ more from your side with all travel needs and living here till my flight.
If everything will be great between us I will be able to stay with you linger then three months (I can stay maximum for six months because it is my first trip to the USA) All we will have to do is to change my return ticket date flight.
I so much hope that you will help me now, I don't know anybody here and that is why I thank you in advance.

See you soon,

Don 't leave me alone here, PLEASE!!!!
I will be moe then greatful when we meet....
I am sorry tht my letter is not so warm but I am realy tired as never.
yours Natalya
