Letter 2

Hello Alex
It's good to write you again! I think I'm a lucky girl to meet such good mas as you in Internet! I hope I will be lucky enough to meet you in the real life!!!!!!!!
Yesterday I told my parents about you. They said now they worry about me not that much as before because they know you are a kind man and can help me if I need your help.
You can show me your city and tell me about the life over there!

I'm sending five pics for you. The first two is me on my bed where I sleep, the next two pics is me with my friends. The next one is just a pic of myself..
Yes, here still, I have made a copy of my driving licence, I think, it will be interesting to you to look at it

I think I didn't write you I like to cook. 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 love spaghetti and pizzza!!!!! mmmmmmm ! I can't like 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 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 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 3)
I think the second part is not as good as the first part.
Have you seen it?
Soon I want to go to the premier of new movie - The prophet. I think it will be really nice film! I like this actress.

Could you recommend me any American movie so I can watch it?
What is your favorite movie and actor?

Some time age I watched "Perfume" (by a novel of Patrick Zuskind).
I've read this novel and I like it so much! Breathtaking! Anyway I think the book is better then the movie.
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 like not only the 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 Novosibirsk, there sometimes can come famous Russian actors and dancers but I can't go there often because it's quite expensive.

And now I have some good news for you! After sending this email I will go home, pack my bags and today later I will go to Novosibirsk! > From there
I will fly to St-Petersburg! I was on a plane only two times in my life and I'm afraid to fly! I hope my plane will not fall down! I'm really afraid!
So it is several hours from Novosibirsk to St-Petersburg and I will come to St-Petersburg late night. I don't think I will live in hotel there, it's very expensive.
You know, by statistics St-Petersburg is the more expensive city in the world after Moscow or Tokyo.

I will rent a room in apartment, it will be cheap. Of course it will be very modest but it's OK for me!

When I come to St-Petersburg and settle down I will write you an email. I hope tomorrow I will be able to write me. Please don't worry about me if you don't hear from me tomorrow, that will mean I was not able to find a place to stay and I will write you tomorrow. Anyway, I hope I will write you tomorrow!!!

In St-Petersburg 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 St-Petersburg before and I'm so nervous now... I've never went somewhere alone and now I should go alone to such big city!
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 St-Petersburg!!!!!!!!

Love and kisses!
I hope I'm the one for you!
From both nervous and excited, your Anna

Letter 3

Alex! Hello again! You can imagine how happy I'm am that I already started my trip and I want to continue it.
I already feel that I became closer to you )) I'm really excited about it!
St- Petersburg still makes me both tired and excited.
Anyway I'm really happy I've started everything.

------------------------------------------

It would be great if you can meet me in the Airport and wait for me there.
I will be very thankful to you if you can do it. If something happens and we will not be able to find each other I can call your phone number or you can make a paper with my name and hold it!
If you will be late because of your work or something else I can wait for you at the Airport...
I will be tired after such big flight (I will be on the plane many hours! I'm not sure how much, I will find out) and have some rest.
So I booked tickets and I can pass my interview only when I pay for my tickets, I didn't know about it. I can receive my visa after I pay my tickets so they want to be sure I have roundtrip tickets so I'm not going to stay illegally over there. I think there rules are too strict...
I have some money but my flight from Novosibirsk to St-Petersburg costed so much (about 550$) because it's so far from St-Petersburg. 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...
Anyway now it's too late to sorry.
Another bad thing yet that prices of service of aerflot (tickets) became more expensive because of high gasoline price.
I didn't guess that everything costs so much and they didn't say anything.
They say they arranged my trip, visa and all necessary documents and money is only my business.
I have to buy tickets till my interview because of such rule. Maybe you could borrow me some money?
I can't live here too long because every day I have to spend some money for food and rent of room.
eally expensive city. The cup of the tea costs about almost two dollars.
I think it is not too great amount I ask and I am sure I will be able to return it back in a few weeks after I arrive. I will earn some money and from the first salary I return it back to you.
in Agency they have told me that you may send it by Western Union or MoneyGram
It is pretty easy to use they said. I have been to the bank and they gave me the information.

All you need is my name, my surname and address to send me the money.
Once you do this, I'll be able to pick up the money at any local Western Union office or MoneyGram in St-Petersburg.
We need to do it pretty fast, because we have no time till my interview, if everything is all right I will be on this plane!

You will send me a transfer info and MTCN ( money transfer control number)
I will get cash.
Kiss you many times, I am tired today,you know it is hard enough to be in a city where you don't have any friends or relatives. So many different emotions.

Kiss you many times! see you soon!

Ah, silly me. Almost forgot to give you my full name and my address.
My address here (where I rent a room)

Country : RUSSIA,
City : ST-PETERSBURG,
Address : ZAKHAREVSKAYA STREET 43-74,
post code : 191123
Full name : ANNA EVDOKIMOVA

I have about 650 US dollars. Please try to send about 600 US dollars so I will be sure I have enough money for all my travel needs and flight. I know you will try to help me!
I can't wait to hug you when we meet! If you can't meet me at the Airport we can meet somewhere in the city, but I don't know how much the taxi cost over there.
I'm glad I have a job lined up and when we meet each other maybe you will even want to have closer relationship with me and maybe we can even live together someday! If you want!
It's just my dreams... But if you don't want to live with me I will live with other girls who came to work too.
see you soon!!! You are a great man and I hope you will not live me alone in St-Petersburg and help me! your Anna
