So, I have to write you a little about my situation.

My town Gornyj about 8000 people in it.
I moved to my town 16 years about, This native place of my father his sister and one of my friends live here. We had a small wood's construction company in Gornyj, but we had quite few problems with employees and with customers that would not pay their bill. I have no enjoe my work, i'm economist - adviser this company This is firm that sells materials for furniture contruction and wood's house. My duties are to get deal (contracts) to clients, to tell them all about finance side of this deal. So one day I just finally decide to leave it all behind and start my life over.
But here is beautul place for leaving and clear air, here is no big factory and here is no many cars to use.
Here is my family, one of great person on earth my father. He have no high education but he allways hard work and this is why my chilhood was no bad even my country most of people have hard live, i very much love my dad. He is 65 yes old but still work and work good his job is forest warden , i hape i use right words, He like Forest , soccer and me. My mother died when I was 23 & she was only 46. it was road accident cause drunk driver, whe she come back from work. It was very bad time in my life and in life of my father but we have been care each other and time get feel better and I know that mom see us from haven . Also here live my aunt sister of father, she is very nice women she believe in God and believe in people too. I live with her cause of her apartaments close to my work place, my dad have very nice house from stone he bought it when we come after acciden with mother. This house was in bad condition - cost cheap. dad work much and i helped him and now it is very comfortable place now, and cost much.
How you use internet?
It's a very small town and only a couple of people here have their own phones with internationl connecion, But several moth ago we have Internet here and its no much popular cause of cost much .NOw it get cheaper first sevice it is email. The only way for me to write you is to get here and pay for time at computer to write you.But if send only letter cost no much, use internet like meet people cost much, I know that in America almost in each home has Internet. In my country it will be too.
I'm very like to write 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.
My time is over now and must go to meet my dad today, i promised to cook him soup.

Letter 3

Hi Paul
How you doing today? my day was no bad.
I have worked short day and cook dinner for dad in dinner time.
He can cook by yourself but when i come like my cooking.
I cooced borsch yesterday When I was a young girl my mom has learned me good cook i have good prcticks when was student was far from home.Home businesses i get know by myself when i and dad got stay alone .
That's why I think I am independent woman. No much independet but some time. I like to cook very much and I am cooking always only by myself. I like to cook soup and meat, chicken, i like salads, fish, 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 and he no like to spend time on cooing, I hope I can be good housewife. I like eat, no only cook. i like soup and potatos and red fish with fried onions. But it better no eat much cause of care about body. I like fruits grapes, persimmon, peach, appricot , here we have no many fruits but my aunt have garden and there is appels tree. I like drink coffee and clear carbonate water. Alchocol? Red wine, no dry and a bit bear with cheaps. But I don't drink a lots, only sometimes at holidays. I do not smoke .

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. But is no many people that i can call my friend. One of my friend now in America. She have traveled like student to work it was five years ago. She have met there nice man but should depart in Russia cause of end of visa, They can meet again only after tree years, She cannot get visa He cannot leave his job. She travel again, and get stay long time and after they decide get married.I dont know how it work cause of i have no meet her over one year, then we had no intenert in my town i have no her email adress.It looked like a fairy tale.They have 20 yeas age difference but i think that huge age differences can be an issue in a relationship Well, now in my courty many bride agecy who help "get married" on foreign man. But they ask many money for them sevice, and all doing honest. America,do you love your place of living? Yes you have better life there, My friend has said that American men are better then Russian cause does not drink so much. They more oriented at creation and care of family.They like to have job, and for for family.Problem of my country cause of many people no want to work. Everyone women want to have family and care about her home, kids and husband.Time is go. I'm single women never get married and have no children.
I'm alredy no small girl and want to find my happines - have my family.
But i'm still young and can find my happines. Life -is life like said in one of american song.
Unfortunately, I have never been outside Russia, but I hope someday. And I dont know a lots about a trips though a countries. But I so happy that I meet you and I hope to know more about you. My time is over now and I have to go now.
But icome tomorrow and write you again .

Its seems he like you. He is very glad for me that I met a man who I seeked for a long time. He believes in you and he trusts you. I asked him a lot about our future how it can be. He told me that we have to meet first and then to decide what to do.
Whe i come to you i will have no much money, and this is problem for me now, How you think icann find job in your country?, i can do many things, i know that i canot be citizen of your country soon and even maybe never, i know if you no citizen of America than job seek will be no easy, can you help me with job?

Letter 7

My dear Paul!
At last that I have come to internet and I can sit to relax and write to you letter. I have a rest when I write to you letters or read yours. For me it as personal contact with you and I receive from it a lot of pleasure. I very much miss on you. Yesterday was very heavy day for me. And I am very upset by result of yesterday. I have taken on work a compensatory holiday at own expense and have lead all the day long in travel agency of Novosibirsk therefore have not had time in internet and could not write to you. I have made inquiry under the ticket to America up to your city and looked forward to answer. I searched for the cheapest ticket therefore results gave out some times and I have waited all day not having received the desirable price for the ticket. It has very much upset me, all prices very expensive. I did not think that tickets can cost so expencive , I thought that trip to you will cost more cheaply than to me informed in agency. I am very much grieved and upset this news because it means that we never shall meet personally and we shall lose our relations, our feelings, our love. I would like to cry and I hardly would restrain what to not burst into tears. All my dreams and hopes break, I do not want to lose you because you and my love to you this only thing that I have, and I so for a long time searched and waited for you that having lost you now it means for me to lose everything, sense of my existence. And if I shall lose my love to you, that remain to me? It is not fair, I want to have the happiness too, and my happiness it is you! What to me to make?
Yours Marina

Letter 8

My dear love Paul!
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 was at cash of airport department 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 1100 US dollars. So, here is information about ticket:
It iscosts: $1,121.40
Depart Novosibirsk (OVB)7:05 am
Arrive Philadelphia (PHL) 9:29 pm Wednesday 28 september
Airlines Aeroflot-Russian Airlines 810 and 303
US Airways 2399

Unfortunately for that moment its really big money for me. As you know, I saved up some money, its about 420 dollars for the ticket and all money for the visa. So I need about 700 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, Marina

Letter 9

My dear Paul!
I understand, that it seems to you, that we move very quickly. You think that our relations develop very promptly. Probably it is true. But I so feel, that it correctly we should continue to build our relations. But I think, that we could correspond longly, much longly we could find out about everyone. So you want. I am sure that our relations not will to develop and grow if we shall operate similarly to this. Yes we could find out all about each other, but we would not began to love more. I think that our love would start to die away. That we could give to go to our feeling further, it is necessary for us to make a new step and the best for this step - our meeting. Then we not only found out about each other more, but also could see our eyes and then much would become clear because eyes in love do not tell lies. I think, that our meeting is necessary. We should not delay it, differently we can lose each other! Time not check for our feelings while we do not meet!!! Time without our meeting is destruction of our relations.
and i no understoo about scaming , i have no my dictonary with me.
But if it mean that ithink then you no loayl and no kind and no gentel
Your, Marina
