Letter(s) to Shawn (USA)

Letter 1

Hello again, Shawn!
This letter will be very very long, so please read up to the end.
You know that I am in Moscow and I think I have already done almost the half of my trip preparations.
Everything is going so fast and I cannot believe I will be on the plane to come to you in a few days.
Frankly speaking I am very tired. Everything is not so easy as I thought it would be.
It is rather hard business because of many barriers in this item.
You even can't imagine how glad I am to meet you and I feel so great thinking about it.
And now I feel better to know that I will not be alone ethere in the USA.
I have some news about my trip.
This is the schedule of my flight. It is a round trip ticket because for getting visa in the Embassy I must have a two-way ticket. That is the law.

I am very glad to know that we are almost near our goal and our meeting is waiting for us in a few days.
I think I will call you from the airport and wait for you there in case you cannot be there in time to meet me. I shall wait as much as necessary.
It will not be a problem for me to wait for you because this will be the end of my long trip to you and besides I will have some time to go to the ladies' room and make myself look better after a long flight.
So you will see me in a good shape.

The tickets are booked already and I will buy them right before the interview in the Embassy
to get my visa. People from the Embassy must be sure that I am not going to your country some illegal way and stay there illegally, that is why my tickets should be two-way. That is the rule.
And honey, the problem is that I have some money but my flight from Kemerovo to Moscow costed a lot (about 400$) and I had to give 100$ more to complete all travel papers and 30$ to open my visa.
Besides I have to pay for the room renting about 25$ every day ( I even don't have a telephone there), I told you it is a very expensive city.
The flight from Kemerovo to Moscow costed so much because the distance is too long.
I could take a train but it would take a few days for the trip to Moscow and I had no time for the train trip.

Besides the flight tickets cost much more now because after the New Year the prices for the
gasolne got much higher. I need to buy the tickets before my interview because I told you that this is the rule before my visa issuance. Maybe you can borrow me some money?
I cannot live here too long because every day I have to spend money for a living.
Even the cup of tea costs almost two dollars.

I think it is not too big amount of money I ask and I am sure I will be able to to the return
you the money back in a few weeks after my arriving. I will earn some money and first of all I will return you all the money back.
At the agency they told me that you can send the money by Western Union.
It is pretty easy to use their services. The manager of the agency explained me how this system works.
It is instant worldwide money transfer system.
All you need to know is my first name and my last name and also the address where to send the money.
Once you do this, I will be able to pick up the money in any local Western Union in office in Moscow.
We need to do it very fast because we don't have much time till my interview.
If everything will be allright and I but the tickets, I will be on this flight and come to you!
You need to send me transfer info and MTCN ( money transfer control number) I will get the cash.
I kiss you many many times!!!!
I am tired so much today, you know it is very hard to live in such city alone. So many different emotions...
See you soon, my darling!!!

Oh, silly me! I almost forgot to give you my full name and my address here in Moscow ( where I rent a room).
Country : Russia
City: Moscow
Address: Krasnogvardeyskaya 15 kor.4 - 193
postal code (zip) : 117303
Full name: Veronika Semyachkova (this is the right writing in English)

I have yet about 400 $ and I need about 950$ more from your side with all travel needs and living here till my flight.
If everything will be great between us I will be able to stay with you longer then three months ( I can stay maximum for six months because it is my first trip to the USA) All we will have to do is to change my return ticket date flight.
I so much hope that you will help me now, I don't know anybody here and that is why I thank you in advance.
See you soon, Shawn!

Don 't leave me alone here, PLEASE!!!!
I will be more then greatful when we meet....
I am sorry tht my letter is not so warm but I am realy tired as never.
your Veronika
