Letter 1

Hi my dear Dan. I am very glad to receive your letter. Yesterday I had conversation in foreign embassy. My conversation has passed very well. To me asked questions in English and I answered them as in English. At the end of interview to me have told that to me is necessary to arrive to embassy on Tuesday for repeated interview. To me as have told that I should buy for cash itself money tickets for the plane from them. These are necessary conditions for that that I would receive the visa!!! It is necessary for me to have $1050 dollars for purchase of tickets aboard the plane. Tickets for the plane will buy in the Russian company its name Aeroflot. Tomorrow Monday and I could buy tickets and on Tuesday I could show them in embassy. Today I passed a medical board it as have passed very well. Now it is necessary to wait only when my visa will be ready. I have all things which to me are necessary. So I shall not come back in the city, I shall wait when my visa here in Moscow will be ready. You have told that can send for me a few{a little; little bit} money for that what I could pay hotel, and tickets you want to buy and to send me, but unfortunately then to me will not give the visa. I so am strongly upset, that I should ask you such big sum. You should understand, that to me it is very awkward, but other exit is not present. When you inform me this information I shall go in branch of the western union and to receive money. About hotel where I live there is a small bank. I went there and to me have told, that they have branch the Western Union. They have told, that I can safely use their services and I shall receive money in some minutes after your departure. Tomorrow payment for hotel comes to an end and it will be necessary for me to pay for residing, differently me will banish on street. It would be necessary for me know the exact sum for that that I could to receive money. I with impatience shall wait for your letter, now all my life in your hands!!! With hope Irina.
