Letter(s) to Tom (Australia)

Letter 1

Hello Tom!! How are you? I'm ok!!! I just returned from my work.
I was dancing at opening a cafe here. It was my last day at work, everybody in my dance group told me so many warm words and wished me luck in my trip! I told them about you and everybody said they will cross one's fingers for us and they hope you are a good man and we will like each other! We had some fun today and it was my last working day... but now I feel myself so sad... I will miss my work and girls from my group... I almost cry now... anyway I don't want to make any steps back and I want to continue my arrangements.
Tom I have some good news for you! After sending this email I will go home, take my packed bags and go to Kemerovo! It is a nearest big city and there is an airport. 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 Kemerovo to Moscow.
When I come to Moscow and settle down I will write you an email. I hope tomorrow I will be able to write you. Tom 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 the next day. In Moscow I will spend some time, I have to 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! As soon as I arrive to Moscow I promise I will find out how to make international calls and what telephone card should I buy and we will talk! 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!!!!!!!!

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

Yours Elena

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. Sorry I didn't write you sooner, it was not easy to find a place to stay here... I couldn't find a cheap hotel, everything is so expensive in Moscow. Finally 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 gives 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 they can`t imagine 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 meet you!! But I don't worry about it! 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 mother is worried enough about me and I don't want to make her worry any more. I think that's really good I've met you! I can write you about everything.
By, the way, one more thing about my trip. Agency will help me to rent a room to stay near my future work in your area. 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. Do you have a big wide bed?(joke). Anyway, if you will not want to stay with me it is ok for me to rent a room, don`t worry!!!
as you know I will stay there for three months and later if I want I will be able to prolong my trip. I will arrive by my Work visa, so I won`t have any problems with law while I will be working.
I think I will be able to improve my english and I think it will help us to learn each other better,who knows.
I miss my family... 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 few of my pics here.
I hope everything will be fine.
please write me as soon as possible!See you soon! Big kiss from moscow!!

Elena

Hello !!! How are you? Today I had a wonderful dream, that we finally meet, I feel myself like the happiest girl in the world!!!
In Moscow its rather warm weather for January, about -2`C.
You know, I feel myself so alone here, Everyone rush somewhere and I don`t know anybody here. Today I was in a travel agency, all my documents are ready.
They will check a possible flight to your airport.
They will give me all information (date and time of my arrival, terminal tomorrow I think.
next few days I will continue to see moscow, like a tourist. In Moscow there are so many different museums!
I will go to The State Tretyakov Gallery (The National Museum of Russian Fine Art).It is not far from the Kremlin, there should be a lot of tourists from all over the world. I read about this gallery before, its collection contains near 130 000 works of painting, sculpture and graphics. It should be really amazing!!! I try to learn as much information about your country and living there as I can. I find some information in internet and read it. Today I was reading about your traditions and holidays. I like to read about your holidays and traditions, it's very interesting. I think you know such holiday as Saint Valentine's Day at February 14 (I hope I'm not mistaken).
When my country was called Soviet Union (USSR) nobody celebrated it and nobody knew about this holiday. Russia was almost closed country and the people here didn't know much about traditions all over the world. And in 1991 happened "Perestroyka" (I don't know how it sounds in English) and my county became Russian Federation and here appeared the first Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev. Russia became not closed country any more and people began to learn about everything in the world... and maybe about 6 years ago many people here began to celebrate Saint Valentine's Day and now it's very popular holiday here! Sorry if my English is broken, it's hard for me to speak about historic things in English, my English is very simple but I can talk it fluently. It's not easy for me to read historic and philosophy books.
I hope you didn't find my email boring.
I wish we could celebrate some holiday together!
I bought few pieces of souvenirs for you, all day I was looking for Moscow sightseeings and souvenir shops. I'm sure you will like them!
Sorry can't buy many. By the way, I took my family album with me so when we will meet - I will show you all my family!
, I send you a thousand kisses and will wait for your message!!!! Yours Elena

hello my love,I've got all the information and I'm resending it for you!! You see after my visit to the consulate and to the agency I am so happy to say we will meet in few days!!!!
I am really lucky girl to meet you. Honey the thing is that I booked the nearest possible flight. I need some of your help.
there is one small problem but I am sure we will be able to solve it. I wanted to ask you to help me to pay for my tickets directly but they tell I can't use your help or ask you about sending me tickets because I have a permission to use the help of the travel agency only because they do all travel things and it is their business to arrange all travel things for my trip, such is the law. It is not possible to get a work visa without the help of the agency, they have too strict rules of getting visas.
I was sure my mom will help me because she promised but now she sent a letter explaining it is possible only in few months or so because of our family problems. She can't send a transfer now. I was in the bank to try to ask them a loan but they said I need to have a registration in Moscow to get a loan from their bank and I don't have it! I think it is not great problem for you to help me. I even hope maybe it will be pleasure to help me because you are my knight,right? after all payments here and my flight from Kemerovo I have about 500 dollars of my own money and I need about 990 US dollars from your side because I have to pay for my tickets and few more things,and I have to pay in advance about 1390 dollars. The tickets are roundtrip and this price includes all arrangements of documents and everything. Honey, New Year came and new prices came also.... I've been told fuel fees and tickets and everything became more expensive and I didn't expect it............
as I mentioned I will have 6 months visa. I have to be sure that I will be able to book my tickets or I will lose all the money I gave them in advance. I'm not going to ask one more time for your help,you see I am in such situation... I will be waiting for your answer .I know it sounds like I am a poor outsider but you see I don't have enough time to find the money I need and find somebody to help me, you know my mom gave me all she could collect for my travel. I hate to ask but now I don't have any other choice.
I need some help from you,please help me to leave Moscow and it is all I ask now and you know I am full of the love to share with you. Kiss you, counting days and minutes before our meeting. You know it is only money, and I think it is not too hard for you to help me, you see I have such chance only once in my life. I know you are a kind man and I hope you will be able to help me. I promise I will return all the money and I will earn money because I am ready to work as hard as I can!
Million of Kisses,
Your poor Elena
you know my rent address here is Russia, Moscow, Oktabskaya Street 12, flat - 43. Remember my full name is Elena - (first name) Dmitrieva -(last name). It is right writing in English, and you should put it on western union list and you can choose any bank in moscow,they tell it is international service and I can pick up the money at any bank of moscow. They said I can get only western union transfer because I have not any bank accounts in moscow and I have only passport and it is enough to get it!
If you need the address of Western Union in Moscow is
MOSCOW INDUSTRIAL BANK
LENINSKII PROSPEKT 28
MOSCOW , 117071
Actually I've been told you can send it to any of their offices.
I can call you as soon as I receive the transfer to let you know about it. And please after you complete a transfer write me the number of your transfer, I'm not sure how it's call but they will give you a number of your transfer.
in case you need it I'm sending a copy of my driver's licence so you can look at my ID, my passport now is on registration of documents.
Sorry I'm so ugly there! It was taken few years ago in 2004. I never like my pics for documents!!!
P.S. I am not sure I should tell this but I want to let you know if you don't like me when I come I will not bother you and it is only your choice to spend time with me or not. I know you may be too busy, and in any case I will return the money back.
I can have a room for rent if I want, a job and I want to say please don't worry I don't want to use you just to reach my goal. I am sure when we meet we will have no regrets about it, I promise. I dream about our first meeting, our first night and I have some sexy lingerie with me! I think everything depends on you! I will keep checking my mailbox all day and all night because I can't sleep if I'm not sure everything is allright and you can help, please, honey, don't leave me alone I've done so much to start this trip and I don't want to give up. And I can stay more than six months, I can stay longer and I can prolong my visa. I want to get to know you better..... to learn more things about you, to touch your hand.. look in your eyes...

Letter 5

Hello My dear Tom! Thank you very much that youwill help me with my problem, I really appreciate it and it is very important for me. Tom I never used western union but I think you need to go to nearest western union office and make a transfer on my name. Tom I so wish you were here, because it is so nice here, I`m really very exited. But I want to tell you I`m afraid a bit to walk on the streets alone, because it is very crowded city. Tomorrow I want to go to a Kremlin, maybe I will have no chance to do it. I read a lot about it and saw many pictures.
Oh, dear, I can`t believe that everything is true. I can`t wait to meet you. I will have a new life and it is really very exiting.
I found this beautiful poem in internet today. I found it for you! It reflects my feelings to you!! Sorry I can't write poems in English, I can write them only in Russian.

Until We Meet

Until we meet
My nights will be a little colder
My days a little shorter
My heart will beat a little less rapid
Until we meet
I know that my arms will be empty
My mind hurting from the constant thought of you
Minutes will seem to be hours
Hours will seem to be months
While months will seem like eternity
Until we meet
The stars in the sky will not affect me
with its gleaming sparkles of life

Until I am gazing at them in your arms
And the food that I eat will not be as fulfilling and nourishing
Until it is you that I share the my food with
And Until we meet
I will not feel whole
My world will seem incomplete
Until that wonderful day
When our eyes make first contact
And our bodies and souls collide in blissful whirlwind
The words will roll off my tongue like a sweet love song
"Hello, my love, I couldn't wait to meet you."
I CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU,
Elena
