James!!! Hello my darling!!!
I'm writing to you as soon as I can!!!!!! I was busy with many arrangements!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also I had to repeat some words for my English test and I finally passed my test today morning!!!
Today I was in the travel agency and I received an information about my trip!
I will be very thankful to you if you can meet me at the Airport!
I will arrive to you on Sunday, June 15!!!!!!
I hope so much it's a good day for you to meet me!
The full cost of my trip including documents and roundtrip tickets is 1399 US dollars.
I passed all tests and everything and all papers are ready. I will pass my final interview at the embassy this week and they will put all stamps in my documents and I will come to see you!
I can't say I'm too much nervous. I know you are waiting for me and I hope you will tell me everything about your country and show me some nice places over there.
I will travel eco class, I hope my flight will be OK. It's so many hours to spend on the plane, I've never done such big flights.
As far as I remember it was about five hours to fly to Turkey from my city and it's the longest flight I've done.
I will be able to stay over there during 12 months and then I can prolong my visa or change my status.
I will have a spesial work visa for nurses and I will work as a nurse.
I'm happy I have a job lined up and I hope everything will works out!
I want to meet you and talk to you and get to know you better.
I feel we will like each other, at least I hope so.
If you decide you know me not well enough and want to be only friends with me I will stay in a hostel for nurses.
But I hope you will like me!!!!!!!!!! I have a good feeling about it!
James I've learnt how to make international calls. I've been told not all public phones and suitable to do this and I've been told which one I can use not far from the place where I'm staying.
If you want me to call you just tell me and I will try to call you!
Also will you pick up the phone or someone else and I should ask to talk to you?
As I wrote you I will come later this week and I will stay here for several days.
So now I have to make final arrangements with my documents.
I told you I passed all tests, I have all documents I need to get a job and everything.
James please try to help me to finish my arrangements.
And I need to pay for this flight. I thought they can pay for my flight because it's a work program but such possibility was available for nurse visas. The limit of such payments already expired this year and they said I should pay it by myself.
You can plan a pretty picnic, but you can't predict the weather.
You see I started my journey earlier then I expected because I've met you and I wanted to meet you as soon as possible.
My father can't help me to pay for my trip, he is lonely, my mom passed away I wrote you. And he has to pay all expenses for my sister's education...Please try to help me, you are my only hope!
I will wait for your help today!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will give the money back to you as soon as I can. I can't promise I will earn all the money in 2 weeks but in 3-4 weeks I will give it back to you. Nurses in your country earn very good money!
Please send it today by Western Union
I will write you details:
Send it to
Elena Stegalova!!!!
This is my full name used in all official documents.
They said this is all info you need.
But please for any case write down more info.
The address where I'm staying in Moscow is Moscow, Marksistskaya 6-34. I rent a small room in apartment here, it's cheaper then hotel.
The address of the closest Western Union here is
MOSCOW , 129110
Actually they said you can use any address of their offices.
I have some money but it's not enough to complete my trip.
Please send me 995 dollars and I will complete my trip!
After it please write me all details about the transfer - your full name and MTCN number!!
I will call you as soon as I receive it.
When I receive the money I will pay for my trip and only then the embassy will put all final stamps on my documents.
I've bought you few souvenirs with Russian attributes!!! I'm sure you will like them! If you need something more please let me know, they are not expensive. Also I bought two boxes of Russian chocolate!
I hope so much when I come to you we will like each other!
You are already very special to me!
Please when I come to you tell me more about you and your country! I will listen to everything you tell me and I will do everything you tell me! I trust you really much!
I hope you will not do something to hurt my feelings.... I think you are really good man.
I will never do anything to hurt yours!!!
By statistics Moscow is the second most expensive city in the world after Tokyo... everything is so expensive here... and I have to pay for my rent and food and buy tickets.. please help me..
Sorry if I missed something or didn't comment please let me know I was so busy with with all preparations!!!!
James I'm sending more pics from Moscow - near Moscow river and in Gorky Park!
Now I take a look at what I have and I've done so much to get it... it only takes one second to lose. I don't want to loose you now when I became closer to you. You are so many miles away and you are still right here, in my heart and mind

Your Girlfriend,
