Letter 1

How are you doing?

Today is first day of spring, how beautiful! i hate winter and when it comes i think just what to do while staying in side and how wonderful it will be when spring comes!
and finally spring is here, of course it is still not warm, but in Ukraine it will become warmer after the 20th of March.
well, here we have gloomy weather, but not cold. I don't have many plans for the weekend, so now i decided to come to internet cafe and check my mail because i know your letter would be waiting for me.
and here it is- i am so happy that you wrote me back again!
i will be staying at home and waiting for friends to come to visit me.

what are you going to do?
I hope you will have smth nice and interesting to do.

Letter 2

How are you doing?
i too was thinking that we will have a good time together in Kiev. so when can you come there?
finally it is Friday and weekend is soon. when i woke up in the morning today i thought it was Saturday and i wondered why did i have to wake up so early? and then i realized it was only Friday and i have to work one more day this week.
Yesterday a friend of mine came from another city. actually she was born in this city, but she went to another for a year of studies, she will leave in three days again, she just came for the weekend to see her parents and meet friends. We were studying at university some years ago together, but then she decided to keep on studying and i went to work. some people in Ukraine study until the time they retire, can you imagine?
well, the weather is sunny, but more cool today and windy. But the sun is very bright, it was hard for me to go to work in the morning without sunglasses.
Today is the very rare day, the 29th of February, and if it's not the leap year we could already have spring today.By the way, the leap-year is considered to be a good year for all the beginnings, so maybe it is the year when we start our relationship in real life with you, what do you think?
I feel pity for the people born on this day. Like i watched a humorist program yesterday on TV and one granny told another that she is 19 years old.
other one ask how it could be and she said: i was born on the 29th of February, so i am not 76 today, but 19:)
Ok, now i will send you the letter and look forward to get your next letter already in spring!
Big kiss,
