Letter 3

Hello friend Greg!
Again I have come to the Internet - cafe, with that feeling, that from you have come
The letter! And I was right! Reading your letters, I believe more and more, that I
You has seriously interested. Your letters do my mood
Fine for all day. I with impatience wait from you for everyone new
Letters. It is very a pity to me, that I cannot write to you the letter every day.
The Internet of cafe to be far from me and I do not have opportunity
To visit it every day. Today I want to tell to you more about the
To work. I already spoke you, that I work as the the physiologist in children's
To garden. It is very interesting work. I work in group with children from 3-5
Years. Each child should give a lot of attention, with everyone it is necessary
To play and consequently by the end of the working day I get tired and home very much frequently
I go on foot. Home I come very much tired. I at all do not regret, that
I work not on a speciality. But this work allows me to have
Independent life, and I can help my parents. In Russia it is hard
To find good work so I do not want to complain. It is better to work in
Such place than to not have work in general. Many people in Russia have no
Work, they speak that cannot find suitable work for itself. It
Those people which do not want to work, they want to earn money and
Thus to work as small as possible. I think, that if the person wants
To earn, it can always earn, but only the work. You
Agree with me??? As we talk about work, tell
To me please, it is more about in what you are engaged in working hours. It
It will be very interesting to me.
It is a little about my city
I have been born, and I live in fine Russian city Semenovka
Semenovka it is one of a beautiful city of Russia.
It is located on distance of 797 km to the east from Moscow.
In our city live about 200 thousand persons.
Our city very pure and convenient. In comparison with Moscow it not the big.
Semenovka - a city with fine architectural constructions. Not simply separate monuments, and the whole streets in Semenovka store memory of city history.
Eventually Semenovka it was divided on two parts - the top city and the bottom city.
Their border are some lakes.
Modern Semenovka too it is very beautiful. Has many shops, trade and the interesting centres.
Not far from a city there is a mooring on which each people of day go and enjoy a kind on the river.
The Mari area - is very rich with wood. If to leave a city, probably to observe beautiful natural landscapes.
In the end of one summer (years), wood - rich berries and mushrooms.
As here probably to have it is a lot of entertainment at fishing on the river.
It is possible, when which you visit Russia if you enter in Semenovka, that you remain, are happy and will see All eyes.

It is interesting to me to know more about your country.
