Letter 1

Thank's for your reply so much!!!
And also I`m very glad to see your photo!! You look like a real man, you look like a kind, nice and caring person. And I like you a lot!!!
I hope soon I will be able to come to your area and we will meet each other!
This time I will write you more about myself. I think you should know more about my life and my hobbies so you will know if we have any common interests.
First of all my full name is Kseniya Lihachewa. I'm 25 years old, not too young I think? My birthday is February 28. I'm 168 cm tall (5.6.) and 51 kg weight. I don't know exactly my bust-waist-hips measurements, I don't have a reason to measure it because I think it's OK and my body is proportionate )) I take care of my body, I do aerobics three times a week and I go to the swimming pool twice a week.
I have two sisters (they are 12 and 15 years old)and it is problem for us because we all (me, my sisters and my parents) live in two-rooms flat.
As I wrote you I live in Russia. The name of my city is Diwnogorsk, it's near Krasnoyarsk city. Diwnogorsk is very small and Krasnoyarsk is a large city, the main city in our district.
I graduated from Krasnoyarsk Humanitarian University two years ago, contemporary dance faculty. Yes we have such faculty in Humanitarian University! So I'm a professional dancer. I don't want to have a dancer's career because I will have not much time for my private life and for relationship with a man. I work as a dance teacher, I teach children from 12 to 17 years how to dance! Also I have a certificate of aerobics instructor, this is my another hobby. So it would be perfect if later I will find a work as instructor or teacher of dances!!! I think it's a very good job for a woman, I'm always in a good shape and I keep myself not that busy!
Do you know how to dance? If not I can teach you!
When I come to your city I will work as a waitress in a restaurant. I would like to work as a dance teacher but I think you understand it's not possible to arrange such work by Internet because they want to see how well I dance.
Anyway I will try to find such work when I come over there.
I'm sending few photos for you today! One of them is me in childhood and another is taken with my father on russian resort - Sochi. He is 62, he is much older then my mum. For truth I think that my man will also be older then me.
The last photo is on the same resort - me eating crabs! They were really tasty!
My father is 62 years old now, my mom is 49. You see my mom is much younger then my father and they are very happy together. My mother is a teacher of music in the school. That's why I have another hobby - music! I finished music school.
So this is another way to have a work - I can be music teacher.
I like classic music, jazz, rock, lounge. I like all kinds of music!
A little about my father: he is in a good shape because we usually make exercises together, he doesn`t work now, because he is retired already.I love both my parents and I'm happy my parents will be not alone when I leave them and will go to another country. Of course I will miss everybody but I want to have my own happiness!
I want to try how to ride a motorcycle someday! I've never tried it! Do you have an International Airport in your city? Please write me it's name an code. Or write me the name of the nearest Airport to you. I write you my emails from Internet cafe, I don't have my own computer. If you want I can call you when I will be in Moscow, it would be nice to talk to you. We don't have international calls here. I suppose in few days I will fly to Moscow and start my trip! Today I will tell my parents about you, I'm sure they will be happy that someone is waiting for me over there! There is no any messenger in this Cafe so we can only keep emailing each other. I hope you are not getting bored to read my emails?
My address here is Russia, Diwnogorsk, Pushkina 11 street, flat 48.
So now you have a representation of who I am....
I just can tell you that I enjoy life and I try to live to the fullest, I like to try new things. I'm not that smart.. I was not that good in mathematics, physics, biology and so on! I don't like to be smart! But I'm very tender, caring, artistic, faithful, decent person. Sometimes I can be not well organized, I think everybody had it's own minuses and pluses.
I don't look any special qualities in a man. I just hope he will be faithful to me and ready to create a happy family with me and I will do everything to make him happy. I'm looking for a soulmate!

OK... it's time to finish my email. I'm sending a kiss by the wind to you and if I sent it to the right destination you should receive it by evening )))) I hope you will catch my kiss somehow )))



Letter 2

I just want to add few things... I think last time I wrote you not all my thoughts... My mind is always in a mess when I write you because it's hard to write everything to somebody who is so far away. I don't remember if I wrote last time I've never been married, don't have kids but I love them and they love me! I wrote you I teach children how to dance and I know how to understand their wishes and worries. I don't smoke, drink occasionally.
And I want to tell you that I always wanted to find an older man.
Why? I have two answers..
Firstly, I think older men are much more serious and they can take care of me, they are more experienced in life and can teach me many things. Have you heard a saying "The older the violin, the sweeter themusic"? I believe in it... I think I'm not that young already but I don't have much experience in life and I want to have someone who has more experience in life then me.
Secondly... maybe I'm not right about it... but I want to be honest I've always had such worry... if I marry a man nearly my age... and after some years I will become not that young and beautiful... I think it's more hard for a woman to be attractive then for a man... and he will find a younger mistress and I will become very miserable. I don't want my man to be unfaithful. I know I can be faithful to my man and I will never cheat on him.
But this is just my worries. This is not my goal. Please tell me if you think you will love your woman at any age and not find a younger one? Can you be faithful?
Also I want to tell you that I learned english in university, so I don`t use any translators, and I can speak english as good as I write on it. I hope we will have no problems in communications. I feel that you are very nice man I really want to meet you. If you will not like me or something else we can be just friends.
I hope I will get my work visa soon in Moscow and all documents and I come to you! I don't have any area limits with this visa so I can work where I want. I don`t know exact day of my arrival, but as soon as I will know – I will write it to you.
And one more thing.. i'm sending a few pics of my city.
You will see a river Enisey, did you heard about it? It is very big and beautiful. My city Diwnogorsk is situated on this river. Also I send you my photo.
I'm just trying to be honest with you and write you all my thoughts on different issues. Please be always honest with me also....
And if I won`t answer some of your questions - pls feel free to ask again, I will answer in next e-mails. You know that I write my e-mails at home and just send it from internet cafe, because there are lot of eyes and noise. I will write you later, I will look if I have more nice photos to send you.
Have a good day!

Letter 3

Kevin hello! It's good to write you again!
I think I'm a lucky girl to meet such good man as you in Internet!
Also I like your photo very much, you look very good!!
I hope I will be lucky enough to meet you in the real life!!!!!!!!
Yesterday I told my parents about you. They said that now they don`t worry about me as before because now they know you are a kind man and can help me if I will need your help. You can show me your city and tell me about the life over there!
I think I didn't write you I like cooking. I will cook Russian cuisine for you! Pelmeni, vareniki, blini, borsch, okroshka! You will like it! Besides Russian cuisine I like Italian and Mexican. I lovespaghetti and pizzza!!!!! mmmmmmm ! I can't live without it! I like Mexican food because it's very spicy, although I don't cook Mexican dishes too often. I've been told my cooking is very tasty! I like to cook cakes. My favorite is cheese-cake with raspberry! You know... when I talk about food I'm getting hungry ))) I eat everything and I'm not on any diets but usually I don't eat after 7 pm. This helps me not to be fat!
I can cook many tasty things for you when we will meet! You know.. almost all Russian men are like bears! They are so rude, they can't be nice and polite, they don't want to have a family. I think you are not like them.
I like to go to the cinema! I really like to watch a good movie with my friends. 50 percents of movies in our cinemas are Russian and about 50 American. Yesterday I've seen a great historical movie!!! It is called "Nomad". I really liked it so much! It was produced by Khazakhfilm (Khazakhstan is situated near Russia) and there you can see some good American actors! One of directors of this movie is a well known Russian director Sergey Bodrov. If you didn't see this movie find it and watch! I advice it to you! Actually my favorite actor is Johnny Depp and I like all movies with him. I've watched Pirates of the Carribean (part 2) some time ago! I think the second part is not as good as the first part. Have you seen it?
Could you recommend me any American movie so I can watch it?
What is your favorite movie and actor?
Soooooooooooooooo......... what else could I say?
I have a driver's licence but I don't have a car. My father has a Russian car and he gives me his car sometimes.
I don`t like only cinema! I like theatre and opera too, I like ballet. Unfortunately there is only one small theatre in my city and there is nothing interesting. If I want to go to ballet, for example, I should go to Krasnoyarsk, there sometimes can come famous Russian actors and dancers but I can't go there often because it's quite expensive. By, the way, one thing else about my trip. Agency will help me to rent a room to stay near my future work. I will share this room with a few girls yet, it is usual procedure and it helps to pay the rent (it will be cheaper).And I have a question, is it normal if we will like each other may be it is possible to live together?of course if you or somebody doesn't mind.
As you know I will stay there for three months but If I will like there I will be able to prolong my trip.
I think I will be able to improve my english and you can learn Russian and I think it will help us to learn each other better,who knows.Do you have a big wide bed?(joke). And now I have some good news for you! After sending this email I will go home, take my packed bags and go to Krasnoyarsk! From there I will fly to Moscow! I`m really afraid to fly on a plane! I hope my plane will not fall down! I'm really afraid! It is several hours from Krasnoyarsk to Moscow.
When I come to Moscow and settle down I will write you an email. Ihope today I will be able to write you. Please don't worry about me if you don't hear from me today, that will mean I was not able to find a place to stay and I will write you tomorrow. In Moscow I will spend a week or maybe even more, I should make all final arrangements with my documents and after it I will come to you! I've never been to Moscow before and I'm so nervous now... I've never went somewhere alone and now I should go alone to such big city! I really want to talk to you by phone, but as I don`t have a mobile phone, I will find a public phone in moscow with international calls. You know... I had such great desire to start my trip already.. and now I feel myself like a newborn kitten who has even didn't open it's eyes... I just want to hug my mommy and don't want to go anywhere... but I know that's my dream to start a new life and I will try to turn in to reality! Soon you will hear some news from me from Moscow!!!!!!!!
I`m sending you some more photos of me!!

Love and kisses!
I hope I'm the one for you!


Letter 4

Hello!!! I'm so excited to write you again!!!!!!!!!! I'm in Moscow! You can't imagine how happy I am because I already started my trip to you! I still cannot believe I've done it! WoW! As I wrote you I was scared to fly on the plane but everything was OK and I'm still alive )))) Moscow is a really big city! I've been told the population of Moscow is about 10 million of people! From the Airport I went by bus... it was so long way... about 1 hour and 30 minutes. I've seen so many nice places in Moscow while going by bus!
When I got off the plane in the Moscow Airport policeman asked me about passport and he looked at me like I am an enemy )))
I think all people here are a little crazy because of terrorism. Everything here is very expensive, not like in my city... and everywhere are big crowds of people! Everywhere is so many people! I feel uncomfortable because of it but I hope I will be OK soon. I found a place to stay, I rent a room from an old woman. She is about 70 years old. She said her husband died 2 years ago and she doesn`t have money to live, so she give in rent rooms in her apartment. She is very nice woman. She said I have to be very careful.
You know... she said many girls from small cities come to big cities, they are looking for a better future and fortune but because they are from small cities theycan`t imagine that their way to find the happiness can be not so easy as they thought... and some of them can end up as prostitutes or something like that. She said I should be careful when I will meet you!! But I don't worry about you! I feel with all my heart you are really nice man! Sorry I wrote you about my worries.. I have nobody to write about it. My parents and my brother are worried enough about me and I don't want to make them to worry more. I think that's really good I've met you! I can write you about everything.
I miss my parents... but I'm getting better with every hour ))
Now I'm very hungry and I will go and eat something.
I`m sending for you some photos of moscow that I found in internet.
Please confirm the name of airport and be sure you wrote it right.
I am afraid to make any mistake... I hope everything will be fine.
please write me as soon as possible!See you soon! Great kiss from moscow!!

Kevin hello,Glad to say that I am all right. You know I am in Moscow now and I think I have made almost the half of my trip. To be fair I am tired,everything is not so easy like I thought. It is hard enough business because of so many barriers on this way. I want you to know that you can't imagine how glad I am to know that you want to meet me,it helps me to be strong.

I am so glad to see that we are almost near our goal,and our meeting wait for us. I think I will call you from airport before my flight. You know I booked tickets on Saturday flight and I will buy them before my interview. People from embassy must be sure that I am not going to stay illegally, so I need to buy roundtrip tickets (with returning date).
I wanted to ask you about electronic tickets but they tell that I can't use because it is their business to arrange all travel details and they have some extra money from all the things, you see it is just business.I think that you will be able to help me because I don't know anybody here and only you are my hope now,I think everything in your hands and I believe that you will not leave me here alone.please borrow some money. I am sure I will be able to return all your money back after a few weeks,I will get salary and I will collect the sum I own from you. To be fair I am not sure I know what to say because I hate to ask but now I have no different way, you see. Please help me it is only money and much more important if we will meet in person I will do my best, you won`t be disappoined. I see that it sounds a little crazy but I can't believe that in the worst case I have to return home,they all will laugh at me.I think it rests with you to decide and I feel that you will help me because you are kind.
I have about 300 US dollars yet and I think I need about 1000 US dollars from your side with all travel needs and living here till my flight!I have some money but my flight from Krasnoyarsk to Moscow costed so much, because it's so far from Moscow. Of course it is my fault because parents told me that I have to travel by train but I wanted to do everything faster so I took a plane....
For truth I didn`t expect I will need to buy roundtrip tickets, but now I see that its a very strict rule. If everything will be all right between us I can stay with you longer than three months,maximum I can stay about 6 months for first time! We should change only the date of my returning flight.and if you won't like me I will live in rent room and won't bother you and money is money I will return it back in any case.I so much hope that you will help me .My parents gave me all they had. Thank you in advance.maybe i look like the poor outsider but I do hope you understand my position because it is always there is anybody who needs the help.
I will call you from airport and I will wait for you there as long as you need,I mean if you need any time to arrive in airport.it is not problem for me to wait because I know that it is the end of my trip and I have time to improve my condition(some perfume)after long journey. I want you to see me in good shape! Kiss you and do hope to kiss you in person so soon. We need to do it pretty fast,you know I ordered all my documents in advance and you see everything is ready so fast I need only your help because we have no a lot of time till my interview, if everything will be all right I will be on this flight!
They have told me that you could make a transfer by Western Union.
You know that I don`t have bank account and travel agency accept just cash.
Here is the info for western union (adress of room I`m renting in moscow).

Honey I am so happy that we will be together in a few days and I have so many different dreams about us and our first kiss and .....some of my dreams are so brave i will tell you later when we meet I prefer to say such things in person and I am sure we will have a lot of fun. I am full of energy and dreams! Kiss you again and do hope you don't leave me here alone,I want to repeat that I will return all the money and in spite of you like me or not I will return it as soon as I have it! Pease take me from here I am so tired to wait for our meeting,the time goes so slowly now.
