Letter 1

Dear James!

I was very surprised to get your answer! Unfortunately I don't know a lots about you, but I hope to know more! I did not have a lots experience in using computers and communicating through Internet with another people. But I hope it will work.

First of all please let me know can you understand me or not. I don't sure in my English. I was not best student in our group learning English, but I hope you will understand me and may be help me to study English more.

So, something about me: I am Russian woman, I live in town Sorochino. It's a very small town, its situated about 2500 km from Moscow to the east. There are no much big cities near it. The largest is Omsk. And what about your city? I am curious about it, about culture of your country.

I am 29 years old, my birthday is 3 March. And when does your birthday? How do you spend it? I graduated from our States University, which is situated in Omsk. My specialty is economical managment. I did not like this science a lots, but it was very popular in Russia when I was ready to choose specialty after graduating school.

So, about a reason why I am here. I will write you more later, now I just would like to check does it work or not. I search for my soulmate, to share with him all my happyness and troubles. And love. I do not searching for long extended correspondence, and I dont like to play in any soul games. I need to find real man for love and I hope its you.

That's a little about me and I hope to know more about you. Unfortunately I don't sure did I done all fine to send you this letter and will you receive it or not. Its will be so pleasant for me to get answer from you! I will be waiting it with impatience!


P.S. My photos are attached. I am very curious about you. Please send me more of your pics. Even if you dont have it, please do it, its so important for me!

Letter 2

Hello James!

I so ready today to receive a mail from you! And I so glad to see, that you received my mail and answered! Thank you for pics. I like it very much. And I so happy that you understood my entire letter! I would like to continue our correspondence and I hope you too! So, I will write you more.

Dear James, I understand most in your letter! But I not sure now I have no much time to read it more carefully. I undesrstood all words but I dont know grammer well. So, I have to write you a little about my situation. As you know I live in town that named Sorochino. It's a very small town and only a couple of people here have their own phones and Internet access. But we have Internet club here and its very popular. The only way for me to write you is to get here and pay for time at computer to write you. But I so happy to do it! I printed your letter and I will read it more carefully at home with dictionary, when I will have more time. I hope its ok, but I can miss some of your questions, please don't worry, I will write answer in one of my next letters. And sometimes (for example some parts of this letter I will prepare at my work and just then type it to you).

So I think I have to tell you more about me and what I am doing here. I can't describe myself, its not easy but I will write you all that my friends say. They say, that I am very cheerful, attractive and devoted woman, and I will not leave my friend in trouble. I do not smoke and I don't drink often. I can drink Champaign, vine or a little bear. But I don't drink a lots, only sometimes at holidays. I was not married and I have no children. I like only honest and open people even if its bad.

My father works likes driver in hospital. He has a lot of business trips. They are not very far, but sometimes he trip to Omsk. Everybody knows him in my town. I have no mother. Its not easy for me to say about it. She died when she gived birth to me. My father love her very much and its a very big loss for him. I know a little about she, only from my father told me. Now my father has another family, but we love each other very much and I am always going to him at weekends. Now I living with my aunt.

When I was a young girl I lived with my father. And all home businesses depended on me. That's why I think I am independent woman. I am proud for this, because it helped me to find out how to cook and how to make homebusiness. I like to cook very much and I am cooking always only by myself. I like to cook something unusual. I like to prepare fish and meat delicious for my guests and guests of my father at holidays. He always asking me to help him because he know that i coocking very good. I hope I can be good housewife. And I would like to find a man to give him all my care and love and to get this back. Most of all I like fruits like grapes, persimmon, peach, appricot.

I would like to tell you about how I get idea to write you a letter but its seems I have no much time now. I will write you about it at my next letter.

Its very pleasant for me to write you letters. I like it very much. Looking forward to hear from you, Olga

My dear James!!!!!

Today I just can't wait to read your mail! Its seems it become mean for me more and more! So, how are you today? I am really surprised how Internet helps us to get close! Now I so thanks to my girlfrind and I am so sad that I did not know you early! I become so attached to your letters!

Today I did not work. That's why my aunt and I make general cleaning of house. We do it every three-month and it takes whole day. I like to make cleaning with aunt. She is very hardworking woman and to clean house with her is very chearful. We always like to be in company of each other. We spoke a lot and I told her about our relations. I said her that I did not believe it early and I am so happy to see that it works now! She was very surprised and wishes us luck and she hopes that our relations will grow up in future in more seriouse. Also we do small cleaning every week by Saturdays. Today we wash windows, walls, floors, and cleaned carpets. It was really easy for me to do it thinking about you. Today we decided to change a carpet in a bedroom, so we needed to change pinth. When we broke old, we finded od wooden board. The house of my aunt is very old, so there are a lot of such boards. Under this board I founded old coin. I was really curiouse what does it mean and my aunt advise me to go to specialist. He told me that its very valueable coin which is dated 1704, its 1 ruble. I was really happy to know it. It has great quality. He told me that it may costs from 400 till 700 dollars USA. And they said that it can cost more at some other countries. I decided to save it for future. I hope that sometime this coin will help me.

My dear James, its a little confuse me, but I would like to share my dream with you. Today night I saw that we sat together at a coast of a big lake. I have not seen this lake early, but it was so beautiful and quiet, and barrels an easy warm breeze. We looked at night sky and we see nice moon and a lots of stars which was reflected in a mirrow of water. It was so good and I feeled your strong arms on my shoulders. We spoke about us and about our feelings to each other. I imagined that we had to tell each other something important, that will change all our future. But at this moment I waked up but I had impression from this dream for a long time. It was so real, that when I understood that it's only a dream, I was very sad. I have never feeled such feelings. And I believe that someday this dream become true!

My dear James, I often think about you and about our relations. It seems to me that every day we become closer. We know more about each other and I like all that you wrote me. So, I will go home now to think about this all. I hope I did not confused you with my dream. What do you think about this all?

Hug you, my dear James,


P.S. I am thinking about writing post mail from you. I have not wrote it to someone, so I dont sure what I have to write at envelope. Please write me and let me know. So, my post adress is:

646931 Russia,
City: Sorochino

Letter 4

My dear love James!!!

I am so happy to get your letter and I am so happy that we becoming closer to each other. All night I thinking about you and about us, I turned on few times the light to read and reread your letters. Its very great that people can meet each other throught Internet and write letters to each other just every day which can let them know more about each other, to make fellings and empathies. I am so gald to meet you in my life and I am planning to meet you in person. I am very serious in my choice. I dont think that longterm correspondence will help us as much as personal meeting. I dont like to speak about financial, it does not good in Russia, I dont brought up such, and my parents teach me to consult with it only by myself, and if I ask someone about something, it mean that I thought a lot about wheather to do it or not. So I thought a lot about is this good or not to ask you about help, but I hope for your understanding because I do it only for both of us and for our happyness. My dear, during the time of our communicating, I understood that we have feeling to each other that I can call LOVE. Such feelings between people become not only from nothing and from lots of thought, analyses of relations, understanding and mutual help. With every day I am becoming surer in my choise and in you. And I sure those if I do some mistake you will understand me and forgive me and I can say it about myself too. Looking for our relations I understood that only destiny of my heart is to meet you in person. And I believe in mutual feelings.

I think, that age not the most important. The main thing that there were feelings between people that people concerned to each other well and between them was mutual understanding.

I was at cash of airport department today asking about cost of the tickets. I dont think that tickets can cost so much! I dont sure in choice of date, but I asked about cheapest tickets that exists. Its costs about 846.85 US dollars. So, here is information about ticket:

Depart Omsk (OMS) 7:10 am
Arrive Toronto (YYZ) 7:48 pm 25 August
Airlines Aeroflot-Russian Airlines 818
Delta 31 / 5616
Connect in Moscow (SVO), New York (JFK)

Unfortunately for that moment its really big money for me. As you know, I saved up some money, its about 100 US dollars for the ticket and all money for the visa. So I need about 750 US dollars more. Its really hard for me to find now such money bymyself, it will take about half of year more. Will you help me with it? What do you think about a date of our meeting? Which is the best? The easiest for me is to take vacation in next month. Please write me your opinion. I dont know a lots about how to send money but I will ask it from my cousin, she sent money few times for my aunt from another countries. I am waiting your responce with impatience and I hope for soon meeting. I am sure that meeting in person will be better then thouthands of letters. But it big money and if you cannot help that I can understand you . It my mistacke. Everything is Allright.

Yours, Olga

My sweetheart James!!! I just so happy to have such great frieand and soulmate as you! Every night I thinking about you, sometimes I can't sleep thinking of you! You can't imagine, how much do you mean for me! You become so close man for me!

Today we had a greatest holiday of out town. It was the Day of City. There are lots of flags, baloons, fireworks and shows. I was so sad, that you were not with me, I would like to hug you or just keep your hand. That so important for me now, that's my dream. I like such holidays. All people look very happy.

How long time we should wait? I have only two months to meet you. Under the labour contract I have only these two months or I should work as early as one year. I do not know, that will take place for this time in my country. If we can meet, only these two months. I did not take holiday during 2 years. My chief advises me to have a rest now, because in 2 months I shall have a lot of work. My holiday will make 2 months (under the Russian laws I can have a rest 1 month in one year).

Today I talked with my cousin about us more and she is so happy for us! I ask her about transferring money, she said that the best way is to use western union system and she said, that everybody in Canada know how does it works. I did not hear about this system of money transferring and I just searched Internet for this to read something about it. And i found this site, where anybody can get nearest bank, which included to western union system. Here it is:
www.westernunion.com . You can visit it and look how does it works.
Closest bank to road service station is:
OMSK, 644088
Phone: 7 3812655869

Then I went in bank and the clerk has told to me is necessary to use control number in transfer of money (MTCN) . You will receive this number at bank and you have to give it to me. I need this code, your name, your adress and your zip code to get money. The clerk has told that without MTCN it is practically impossible to receive money.

Its seems all information that you need to send me money is my name and my surname. You know my name, it is Olga and my sirname is Lobanova. Please let me know is this information enough for you?
Please let me know.
I kiss you and hug you, my love!
Forever yours, Olga

ps You have the good program for studying Russian!
