Letter 1

Hi, Reggie!
Thanks a lot for your nice letter!
Forget about your age,its not important for me,lets do not miss each other in this big world!
Unfortunately I use the Internet in the agency and there is no web cam and MSN there, hope you dont mind.
I think that it’s time to know each other better! You already know that my name is Marina.
Unfortunately I have never ben abroad but its my childish dream!
Do you like my name? I think that it’s not so important for you, am I right? OK, sometimes I’m funny but sometimes I’m just ridiculous, so you can tell me if I’m saying stupid things!
My native town is Donetsk that’s in Ukraine. There is nothing special I my city, so if you don’t mind I will not tell you much about it. If you have any questions you can ask, don’t be shy!
So now I’m 25 and I’m working as a manager of small trade firm in our city. I’m not sure if I like it at all. But time will show...
I like my work but of course I don’t want to work here for the rest of my life, I want something more, but now it’s just a dream. But one day this dream will come true; I just must wait for some time!
So I like sea, red, purple and violet colours, snow and the sun shine in the rainy day! It’s just so beautiful! Also I like to spend time with my friends, read detectives and watch reality shows.
I forgot!!! Guess what I like the best?? Yes of course I like music! I like r’n’b, pop and pop-rock styles. For instance Rihanna, Beyonce, Nicole Scherzinger, Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake. Can you tell me what do you like in music?
Maybe you wanna ask me why I decided to find a friend or beloved in a foreign country, why not in Ukraine? It’s very simple!
I already have many friends here and I know what they are thinking about, what they are talking about, their interests and their opinions. So I just want to know more about living abroad, your preferences and your thoughts as for many questions. I can’t say exactly that there are no good guys here and that they are spoiled with women’s attention. No, it’s not true. I’ve met many simple and cute men, but there was no man which had a purpose in his life and wanted to reach it. There were no pivots in them.
I hope you understand what I’m talking about. And they didn’t have great sense of humour that I like in men the best. So I decided why not? Maybe you will become special for me? Maybe you will make me smile? Who knows…
You know, in a man I value a sense of humour, honesty and kindness. And he must be easy going to forgive me all stupid things I do!J And I don’t wanna be one of many; I wanna be the one for him. Is it possible? I really don’t know. But I know that there are no impossible things in whole world! I’m sure. What do you think about it? Recently I could lie to people which I appreciate and which I love. I’ve just told them stupid things and could be rude with them. But now I understand that we must answer for every word we say and must value what we have.
I think you agree with me as for this question.
So enough about me! Now it’s your turn to tell me about yourself!...............

Letter 2

HI, my darling,
how are you there, my dear? I'm happy that you want me to come to you, it would be just wonderful, my love! I couldn't even dream about it earlier...
You're a man of my dreams and you're also my sunshine...You dont need to worry 'cause I have already been to the travel agency as I have told you.
Honey, they told me that there will be no problems for me to visit you. I just have to buy a tour here and on this case they will help me to get a visa.
A manager suggested me to buy a hot tour 'cause its much cheaper than an usual tour.
The cost of that hot tour consists of a passport which costs 210 USD and it will take me 1 week to make it; a visa which will cost 315 USD and it will take me 5 days to make it;
an insurance which will cost 56 USD and the tickets which are 1145 USD. Honey, I must confess that its very big price for me and my friends and relatives cant help me with it 'cause a life on our country is very hard.
I want to ask you of you could help me some way to pay for that tour,I just dont want to lose such great possibility 'cause an usual tour costs about 3000 USD and I dont want you to waste much more money.
If you want you can mail the travel agency on this address: apelsin13666@yandex.ru and a manager Ella Kozachenko will explain you everything. As for me I really want to be with you, I'm a serious woman and I hope that you're also a serious man, my darling. I just dont want to suffer form love and to be deceived. I will be waiting for your answer and I will be thinking of you, honey, kiss you, only yours Marina.
