Letter(s) from Natalia to Ajit (USA)

Letter 1

Hi my friend Ash!

I'm glad to get your response today. It's really nice to talk with you and I like to have the contact. Hope you like to read my letters also! What do you want to know? I could answer any of your questions and I hope you will answer mine. Please tell me more about your family, friends and people you know.
What is your usual day? I will also tell you what you want to know about me.

I can't tell you exact date of my coming. The reason is big paperwork and I will let you know about it soon. I guess it will be after two or three weeks.
Now I don't know exactly who will be my employer. They are paying for my air fare as well. There are several variants concerning employers and locations.
But the agency advise me to choose the location near yours because there is a good salary vacancy.

Ash, I haven't even boyfriend now cause I'm going to leave Russia. So this is the main circumstance, I'm absolutely free! I want you to know my ideology.
The simple things I want from life are happiness, family, careful husband. I put spiritual life to the first, not material things. I am not looking for better life or getting rich. I am looking for full life.

I was never married in Russia because I did not want it. I watched mom's life and other people living here. Bad economics. No perspective. I don't want to live here. I love my Motherland but I don't like the Polity. I want to have comfortable life and don't want to be in searching good job and better salary always. I want to dedicate my life to my future husband and my future family. I don't want to say I am lazy. I like to work but I don't want to dedicate my life to my work. I hope you understand what I am talking about.

I am sending you four pictures today and I hope you like it! Two of these are from my home and others from summer walk. The pictures I'm sending to you was taken by Mariya at the last summer. I guess one picture will make laungh you, it's funny! Do you have funny pictures of yourself?

Ash I want you to understand me fully until we will make some any steps.
Tell me what you think about all what I said and what else you would like to know. Well the letter seems to be long so I will close till next time. I will wait for your letter and I hope to get it as soon as you can cause I would like to know what you think about my thoughts.

Thinking of you, Natalya.

My friend Ash! I'm glad to hear from you!

Today I have a good day and I'm glad to type my letter to you from job's computer at clinic. I hope you understand that it's the last month here in Russia. I will leave my home for a new life. I have good time to correspond with you. I enjoy it. I can say it is becoming one of my favourite things.
Maybe you will be a good real friend in my life in America, who knows..
I'm sure it will be great and I hope it will be!

Ash, I like the same thing like all people. Movies, walking, theatre. I like to drink tea with friends in cafe. We talked about everything and nothing.
I don't have a lot of friends but all they are good people. To be honest I don't like 'empty' people. My friends are almost my old friends from childhood and youth. They are already almost married. Don't think that I am close person.
I like to meet new people and make friends. I am easy-going and I easily strike up new acquaintance. From another side I am not easy approachable woman. I am serious. I think it is from my upbringing.

I am glad to hear about your family. As for me I haven't any brothers or sisters and I'm the only one child of my parents. I want you to know my dad's name is Aleksey and he is 58 and my mom's name is Valentina and she is 50. My parents live not far from me and I visit them on holidays or when I have time because the distance between us is only about 3 km's. They live in small village called Molodezhnyy not far from Leykovo settlement (where I am). From my birth my mother wanted me to become a scientist (she is mathematician). But I didn't. I had enough strict upbringing. I had been not allowed to date with boys until I got 20 years old. My mother is old-fashion person. Probably it is not bad. I love my mother and respect her. She could give me good upbringing. We didn't have any conflicts. I always try to understand her. She loves me too and just want me to be happy. I talked with her about you. Are you surprised? We often had confiding talking. She understands me in full. I said her that I meet a man on dating service in Internet. And that this man is from America, from the place where I will live and work soon. She said that it's good because I need to find friends or even the future husband in place where I'll live. I guess she's right. My dad was in military but now he have a pension because of age.

Ash, I want to tell you: when I studied in school I had a friend which name is Rimma and I know from other friends from school she is in America now and live somewhere in state Minnesota but I don't know the address definitely.
Is there that state? Is it close to you Ash?

I don't know Rimma well now because it was a long time ago when we conversed, more than ten years ago. I hope she is okay there.. She found the husband through Internet and they decided to live in America. I never thought about moving to another country seriously in that a long time ago but now I decided to immigrate and I will arrive the United States soon and it's agitate me! I will be very glad to have a friend when I will be there alone!!! Guess who???

I'm taking a pause till your reply. I hope to hear from you soon!
Yours Natalya.

Letter 3

Ash, I forgot to attach new pictures for you!

Every time I am sending you my pictures and today I'm doing the same! How do you like them? There are another four pictures for you! I hope you like it. I'm sure my friend Mariya takes the good shots of me. Did you know that I'm smiling not only for shots? I hope you have a smile on your face now. I want to hear your voice, could you give me your mobile phone number? It will be not very simple to call you. Do you want to hear my voice? I will need to go to other city like Pokachi or Novoagansk for call you because I haven't the sanction of operator to call overseas and get calls from other countries. Did you remember I live in settlement called Leykovo? It's the military and oil producing zone and people can call each other inside the settlement but the sanction need from authorities for call to other cities. Calls outside the country are forbidden so I will need to go to other city for call to you. I'm very glad that I have the possibility to send you letters and it's because of clinic computer. People haven't internet connection here, it's available only for organizations. Anyway I will leave this place soon because I don't understand how to live here in 21th century! I guess my new life in United States will be more various and unobstructed!!!

Hope you like my pictures! Waiting for your response..
Natalya.
