And I so glad to see that you received my mail and answered! It is very good that our correspondence proceeds. I hope to know more about you and I shall write to you more about myself.

As I write you I live in village Karlovka. Our village located at top of the hill. We have alot of woods around here. This is very beautiful place for peoples who like a nature. Also we have a river that flows near to our village.

I have a bachelor degree. I have finished the State Pedagogical University in Dnepropetrovsk. Unfortunately it is very difficult to find work in big city for girl from village. I find work in the town Poltava. As you understand it is next town of my village. Many peoples from my village work and going to shop in this town.

I work in school number 2 in this town and I teach children to mathematics. I like this work because I love children. But this work occupies many my forces and time. I work 6 days in week and in the weekend I work as the tutor. Please write me about your work? What is most interesting in your work? How do you spend your free time?

I have been never married and I have no kids. My family is small. It is hard for me to write about it, but I have no daddy. My father has died when I was 8 years old. He was the builder and built a multi-storey houses. He had accident on work. When he built the house, the big pipe has fallen from a roof on him. It has crushed him. It was very awful... But I remember my daddy as very kind and cheerful. I very much loved him. Mum cried much and for a long time. But the life has gradually changed. And my mum has married second time several years ago. Now she lives with my stepfather in town Pryadovka that I am from. Also I have the younger sister. She has married the good man one year ago and lives with the husband in Pryadovka too.

I lived with mum and the younger sister for a long time before I go to University. When I studied at university I lived in a hostel. Therefore I'm very skilled in all kind of home business. I very good cook, my room always cleanliness and order. I like to cook very much. When I was a young girl my mum has learned me good cook. I have good practice when was student and have been far from home. I like to cook many meal's from meat, chicken. I like salads and fish. I like eat Soups and Spaghetti, red fish with fried onions. Also I like fruits grapes, persimmon, peach, apricot. We have many fruits here in the Summer. I like drink coffee and Orange juice, white wine. But I don't drink wine a lots, only sometimes at holidays. I do not smoke also.

I would like to tell you about how I get idea to write you a letter, but it's seems I have no much time now. I will write you about it at my next letter.

Looking forward to hear from you tomorrow, Olga

Letter 4

Dear Mark!

I am glad to receive your letter today. It is very pleasant for me. I see we have a lot of common thing and I like it very much. I think we becoming more closer to each other. How are you today?

I want to tell you more about my work and about my situation with the Internet here. As I wrote to you earlier, I work in small city Poltava as the mathematics teacher. I work from 8.00 am till 4.00 pm. Every morning I go in Poltava by a bus. We have no phone and any Internet in my village. And consequently I write to you letters with Internet terminal located on the Bus station. In the morning I cannot write to you because the Internet terminal is closed. I write to you letters after work. I finish work at 4.00 pm. Internet terminal works till 5.00 pm. Therefore I have no a lot of time to write to you. I think about you all day, I think what to write to you. Sorry if I do not answer your questions sometimes. I shall answer your questions in my following letters. It is the old terminal which has no a sound and other multimedia devices. But It enables to send you letters and photos. I think that it is very well. I am surprised that people can communicate with each other from the various countries of the World. And where you use Internet?

So, I would like to tell you about how I get idea to start to write you. The Internet seem to me very difficult. I did not know as all this works. But I have casually got acquainted with teacher at a seminar which corresponded with an American man. We talked and told each other about myself. I have told that I work as the mathematics teacher. And she has told to me very surprising thing. She has told to me that she corresponds with the American man via Internet a long time. I have been surprised that such probably in a life. And now I do understand that it is really and probably. They have fallen in love each other and they have decided to meet. Now she is in the USA and she should be happy. She has left school and I think that she teaches there. Unfortunately we did not communicate more and we had no time for the greater acquaintance. We met once and it was as a sign on destiny. I thought for a long time and I have decided to find my happiness through the Internet. For me it was the important step to write you. I am very glad that I correspond with you and I very much like communicate with you. It is my first experience in dialogue through the Internet and I hope it will be successful. I am very interested to dialogue with you through the Internet very much.

As each woman I want to have good family and to care about home cosiness, children and husband. I search such for man which will love me, to respect and to care about me. Unfortunately, I have never been outside Ukraine, but I hope someday. I so happy that I meet you and I hope to know more about you. What do you want to change in your life? What do you search in the woman?

With impatience I'm waiting your following letter.
Take care, Olga

Letter 5

My dear friend Mark!

How is your mood today? Today your letter has made my day better. I like read you letter, I like wait when your letter download, I'll be feel sad if no letter from you, from this time. And now I know there is somebody who are thinking about me and now I am not alone. I am so happy that I have you as my friend! Thank you for that.

Today after work my sister with her husband has arrived on a visit to me. I have told to my sister about you. She wishes good luck for us and she hopes for development of our relations. Now she is near to me and she say "Hi" to you! Today we want to go to shop for purchases. Later in the evening they will leave for the home. And I shall go to my home to prepare for a supper and to do homework.

#### as I wrote to you earlier, I live alone. After work I very much like to listen to music. I like American music very much. I like Rock and some Classical music. Sometimes I listen silent and relaxation music. My favorite music bands is Metallica, ZZ top, Aerosmith and some others. From classical music I like Mozart and Beethoven. I like Madonna also. Russian music is not my favorite.

Sometimes I watch TV. Unfortunately our TV does not show programs about America, but show the American films. I can watch all type of movie: drama, love story, comedy, thriller. I do not like bad and boring films. I like 6 Feeling, the Lord of the rings, Forest Gamp and I like Bruce Willis, Tom Hanks and Robert De Niro. Music and TV not my unique hobbies. I shall write in the other letter about my other hobbies. Please write me more about your hobbies. What type of music do you listen? What films do you watch? Who your favorite actor is?

At all my life I had no serious relations because I have not met the right man. Russian men is not serious in his relations with women. I did not meet the man among my coevals who could understand me, who could respected me, appreciate and loved me. Therefore I want to meet the man who is senior than I am and is not from Russia. I am very glad that I have met you. Very important thing in relations is mutual understanding and trust. Without trust love does not exist. What do you think?

I have no time to write to you more because my bus leaves. I should go. But I shall necessarily write to you tomorrow. I wait your letters every day.
Your friend, Olga

Letter 6

My love Mark!
How are you doing? All this a long day I thought about you. Every time, when I reading your letter, my mood become good and my heart is knocking so fast! Your letters make me more strongly, they give me force and bravery to go to you, my beloved! I miss you very much and all my thoughts last time about you only! You are the unique man that can understand me now and only you can support me in difficult situation! I am sure in you and I can trust you in any case. I want to give you my heat, care and love all that I have.

Today I have a good news. I was in the regional passport center and talked to my girlfriend that promised help me. Yesterday she has told me what documents are necessary for reception of the passport. Today I have brought all that is necessary. I should write there some questionnaires also. And all my documents have been accepted for registration. This procedure will take about 5-6 days.

My love Mark, I never was outside Ukraine. I did not expect that it so simply to receive International passport. Regional passport center it is big organization. They have division named visa agency. They help peoples to receive the the visa in the different countries worldwide. And sure they help to receive visas in the USA. It is especially hard to receive the visa in the USA for single women. Therefore their help is necessary for me. Employees of visa agency are very much qualified. They know that is necessary for reception of the visa and what documents need to be collected. Today was late very much, therefore I shall go in visa agency tomorrow. I hope tomorrow I shall have good news also. Our meeting is closer and closer every day.

My sweetheart, how do you think, if I will come to you, where is the best place for my living? At your home or at a hotel? I would like to stay at your home, if its not a problem and if you want it. I hope my wish to come to you to meet in person is not confuse you. Please tell me the true.

I have never think about a man as much as i think about you. You are always on my mind. I dream of the day also when we can talk for the first time I can't wait. I think we have something special. I can feel you every time I think about you. You are man of my dreams. I think I could really be happy with you. I must go for now but I will write you again soon. I kiss you now in letter but I hope to kiss you for real soon. All my love only to you, Olga
