Letter(s) from Ekaterina Proschevaeva to Glenn (USA)

Letter 1

Glenn hello! It's good to write you again!
I think I'm a lucky girl to meet such good man as you in Internet! I hope I will be lucky enough

to meet you in the real life!!!!!!!! Yesterday I told my parents about you. They said that now

they don`t worry about me as before because now they know you are a kind man and can help me if I

will need your help. You can show me your city and tell me about the life over there!
I think I didn't write you I like cooking. I will cook Russian cuisine for you! Pelmeni,

vareniki, blini, borsch, okroshka! You will like it! Besides Russian cuisine I like Italian and

Mexican. I love spaghetti and pizzza!!!!! mmmmmmm ! I can't live without it! I like Mexican food

because it's very spicy, although I don't cook Mexican dishes too often. I've been told my

cooking is very tasty!
I like to cook cakes. My favorite is cheese-cake with raspberry! You know... when I talk about

food I'm getting hungry ))) I eat everything and I'm not on any diets but usually I don't eat

after 7 pm. This helps me not to be fat!
I can cook many tasty things for you when we will meet! You know.. almost all Russian men are

like bears! They are so rude, they can't be nice and polite, they don't want to have a family. I

think you are not like them.
I like to go to the cinema! I really like to watch a good movie with my friends. 50 percents of

movies in our cinemas are Russian and about 50 American. Yesterday I've seen a great historical

movie!!! It is called "Nomad". I really liked it so much! It was produced by Khazakhfilm

(Khazakhstan is situated near Russia) and there you can see some good American actors! One of

directors of this movie is a well known Russian director Sergey Bodrov. If you didn't see this

movie find it and watch! I advice it to you!
Actually my favorite actor is Johnny Depp and I like all movies with him. I've watched Pirates of

the Carribean (part 2) some time ago! I think the second part is not as good as the first part.

Have you seen it?
Could you recommend me any American movie so I can watch it?
What is your favorite movie and actor?
Soooooooooooooooo......... what else could I say?
I have a driver's licence but I don't have a car. My father has a Russian car and he gives me his

car sometimes.
I don`t like only cinema! I like theatre and opera too, I like ballet. Unfortunately there is

only one small theatre in my city and there is nothing interesting. If I want to go to ballet,

for example, I should go to Krasnoyarsk, there sometimes can come famous Russian actors and

dancers but I can't go there often because it's quite expensive.
By, the way, one thing else about my trip. Agency will help me to rent a room to stay near my

future work. I will share this room with a few girls yet, it is usual procedure and it helps to

pay the rent (it will be cheaper).And I have a question, is it normal if we will like each other

may be it is possible to live together?of course if you or somebody doesn't mind.
As you know I will stay there for three months but If I will like there I will be able to prolong

my trip. I think I will be able to improve my english and you can learn Russian and I think it

will help us to learn each other better,who knows.Do you have a big wide bed?(joke). And now I

have some good news for you! After sending this email I will go home, take my packed bags and go

to Krasnoyarsk! From there I will fly to Moscow! I`m really afraid to fly on a plane! I hope my

plane will not fall down! I'm really afraid!
It is several hours from Krasnoyarsk to Moscow.
When I come to Moscow and settle down I will write you an email. I hope today I will be able to

write you. Please don't worry about me if you don't hear from me today, that will mean I was not

able to find a place to stay and I will write you tomorrow.
In Moscow I will spend a week or maybe even more, I should make all final arrangements with my

documents and after it I will come to you! I've never been to Moscow before and I'm so nervous

now... I've never went somewhere alone and now I should go alone to such big city! I really want

to talk to you by phone, but as I don`t have a mobile phone, I will find a public phone in moscow

with international calls. You know... I had such great desire to start my trip already.. and now

I feel myself like a newborn kitten who has even didn't open it's eyes... I just want to hug my

mommy and don't want to go anywhere... but I know that's my dream to start a new life and I will

try to turn in to reality! Soon you will hear some news from me from Moscow!!!!!!!!
I`m sending you some photos of me on a Black sea on russian resort Sochi. I`m sure you will like

it!!!

Love and kisses!
I hope I'm the one for you!

Ekaterina

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?
Also I want to tell you that I learned english in university, so I don‘t use any translators, and

I can speak english as good as I write on it.
I hope we will have no problems in communications. I feel that you are very nice man 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 I come to you! I don’t have

any area limits with this visa so I can work where I want. I don‘t know exact day of my arrival,

but as soon as I will know – I will write it to you.
And one more thing.. i’m sending a few pics of my city.
You will see a river Enisey, did you heard about it? It is very big and beautiful. My city

Diwnogorsk is situated on this river.
Also I send you my photos skating with friend.
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 will write you later, I will look if I have more nice photos to send you.
Have a good day!

Letter 3

Glenn hello,Glad to say that I am all right. You know I am in Moscow now and I think I have made
almost the half of my trip. To be fair I am tired,everything is not so easy like I thought. It is

hard enough business because of so many barriers on this way. I want you to know that you can't
imagine how glad I am to know that you want to meet me,it helps me to be strong.

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

I am so glad to see that we are almost near our goal,and our meeting wait for us. I think I will

call you from airport before my flight. You know I booked tickets on Saturday flight and I will

buy them before my interview.
People from embassy must be sure that I am not going to stay illegally, so I need to buy

roundtrip tickets (with returning date).
I wanted to ask you about electronic tickets but they tell that I can't use because it is their

business to arrange all travel details and they have some extra money from all the things,
you see it is just business.I think that you will be able to help me because I don't know anybody

here and only you are my hope now,I think everything in your hands and I believe that you will

not leave me here alone.please borrow some money.
I am sure I will be able to return all your money back after a few weeks,I will get salary and I

will collect the sum I own from you.
To be fair I am not sure I know what to say because I hate to ask but now I have no different

way, you see.
Please help me it is only money and much more important if we will meet in person I will do my

best, you won`t be disappoined.
I see that it sounds a little crazy but I can't believe that in the worst case I have to return

home,they all will laugh at me.I think it rests with you to decide and I feel that you will help

me because you are kind.
I have about 300 US dollars yet and I think I need about 1000 US dollars from your side with all

travel needs and living here till my flight!
I have some money but my flight from Krasnoyarsk to Moscow costed so much, because it's so far
from Moscow. Of course it is my fault because parents told me that I have to travel by train but

I wanted to do everything faster so I took a plane....
For truth I didn`t expect I will need to buy roundtrip tickets, but now I see that its a very

strict rule.
If everything will be all right between us I can stay with you longer than three months,maximum I

can stay about 6 months for first time! We should change only the date of my returning flight.and

if you won't like me I will live in rent room and won't bother you and money is money I will

return it back in any case.I so much hope that you will help me .My parents gave me all they had.
Thank you in advance.maybe i look like the poor outsider but I do hope you understand my position

because it is always there is anybody who needs the help.
I will call you from airport and I will wait for you there as long as you need,I mean if you need

any time to arrive in airport.it is not problem for me to wait because I know that it is the end

of my trip and I have time to improve my condition(some perfume)after long journey. I want you to

see me in good shape!
Kiss you and do hope to kiss you in person so soon. We need to do it pretty fast,you know I

ordered all my documents in advance and you see everything is ready so fast I need only your help

because we have no a lot of time till my interview, if everything will be all right I will be on

this flight!
They have told me that you could make a transfer by Western Union.
You know that I don`t have bank account and travel agency accept just cash.
Here is the info for western union (adress of room I`m renting in moscow).

Honey I am so happy that we will be together in a few days and I have so many different dreams

about us and our first kiss and .....some of my dreams are so brave i will tell you later when we

meet I prefer to say such things in person and I am sure we will have a lot of fun.
I am full of energy and dreams!
Kiss you again and do hope you don't leave me here alone,I want to repeat that I will return all

the money and in spite of you like me or not I will return it as soon as I have it!
Pease take me from here I am so tired to wait for our meeting,the time goes so slowly now.

Ekaterina with great hope and many kisses!
