Letter 1

Hello my new friend. I am glad that you have answered me. I was not sure that you would write. Thank you that you found time for the answer. I think that you have many questions for me. I will try to tell you everything about me. I hope that you will tell me about yourself too. I do not know what to tell you about myself at the beginning, but I hope that you will understand me. OK I will try to begin. My name Marina. My friends I name me Marinka. I wrote to you about it. You can call me as you want. I will not be offended. I am 24 years old. I was born on December 8 in 1981 year. My height is 170 centimeters. My weight of 52 kgs. Probably you will be very much afflicted when you find out that I live not in your country. But I very much hope that it does not frighten you, because I the same lady like many other ladies living in the different countries. I the same person with heart and soul. I live in the city of Zvenigovo. Zvenigovo is capital of republic Mari El. Mari El is in the central part of Russia. In our republic the big river Volga proceeds. I began to receive education in high school. After I have finished her, I have arrived in the Zvenigov state university. I have finished him with excellent result. My specialty the lawyer. But now I work as the seller in shop. I am the seller - adviser in computer shop. Collective with which I work, at us in shop friendly. I shall have not always an opportunity to write to you the letter. Because I have no computer of a house. I use a computer on my work. On work I can use a computer almost freely. So it is way more convenient for me to write to you. Though it as depends not on me. With a computer other employees work. I have no bad relations with them, but they can give me a computer only when he will not be necessary for them. And the computer will be completely free. For this reason I hope that you understand me. My new friend, answer my questions, if you can: 1. Do you like your job? 2. What is your favorite film? 3. What kind of music do you like? 4. Have you ever had a friend from the other country? (The friend on correspondence). I thank you for your answers beforehand. My new friend, you may not answer these questions if you do not want.

Letter 2

Hi! How your day? I hope you are glad to receive my letter because when I have received your letter I really was delighted. Many thanks. I shall tell to you about where I work. I work as the seller - adviser in firm which is engaged in sale of computers. My day passes practically as at all. In the morning I rise at 7:30. I have breakfast. Then I go for work. My working day from 9:00 till. As well as at everything, 8 hours. I work from Monday till Saturday. 8 hours I work only in everyday lives. On Saturday I work from 10:00 till. Sometimes it happens so, that on Saturday I get tired more, than any other day. Because Saturday is the day off. And people who come in shop become more. Such at me working week. And how there passes week at you? What do you like to do on the days off? In the days off I like to have a rest. I like to go with girlfriends to cinema, in theatre. Near to my house the park is located. Sometimes I there walk. But I not see off all days off so, sometimes I simply sit at home. I listen to music, I read books or simply I watch TV. So I have a rest. Maybe. Do you want to know how I will write to you my letters? I write to you letters during all my working day by small parts - in those short time intervals when the computer will not be occupied. And something else. Me have warned that our computer has dependent system of sending of mail. My letters will be sent only after service mail which is sent two times in day - at midday and after finish of the working day. Probable, my letter will be sent automatically after finish of the working day. Working day in our shop comes to an end at 22.00, but my working day comes to an end at 17.00. I work in children's branch. If you want, I can tell to you about my work. Only tell. Oh! I promised you to tell what music I like. Now I have some free minutes and with pleasure will spend this time to tell to you about my interests. I like various music. All depends on mood. I like to listen classical music. I like Dunaevski and Chajkovsky. I like to listen simply instrumental music. Such music allows to relax and have a rest. Under such music I like to think. I like to listen to guitar masterpieces of Joe Satriani. I very much like group Dire Straits. I like Pink Floyd. They are not similar to anybody. It is great group. I like Madonna, Robbie Williams and George Michael and many others. In America many great musicians. I like many Russian musicians. For example Philip Kirkorov, Valeria or groups: Chaif, Splin. But you likely do not know them. I very much like cinema. In Russia create few good films. I like works of such directors as Tarkovsky, Konchalovsky, Mikhalkov. My favourite movies - Siberian Barber and Tired by the Sun. It's masterpieces of the Russian cinema. The American movies in Russia use huge popularity. The American movies is considered the greatest. I very much like the American movies and I like many American actors. For example: Gladiator, Brave Heart. Mel Gibson - good actor. I like films- The Sixth Sense, the Rainman, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Gone with the Wind, Magnificent Seven, the Godfather, Groundhog day, The Scent of a Woman. My favourite actors - Bruce Willis, Al Pacino, Kevin Costner, Samuel L. Jackson, Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks, Demi Moore, Kevin Spacey. My hobby, if it's possible to tell so - the English language. I have loved English long ago, when I studied at school. In Russia the program of training necessarily includes foreign language, as a rule - English, German or French. I have entered in group of the English language and I am happy that I made it. I very much like your language. After school, I continued studying of English language at the university. I like this language. It is a very soft and easily-memorized language. I learn the English language easily. At present I attend courses of the English language. I study your language within 18 years. I want to know this language perfectly. I know that now I admit mistakes, but I hope you won't angry. What else to tell about me? I never was married and I haven't children. I am lonely and the reason of my loneliness not only in me. However, I do not know if it interestingly for you. I live honestly, and it brings pleasure to me. I am optimist and I like to smile, because a smile - mirror of soul. For happiness is not required many things. Likely the main thing that does not suffice me now is love. People without love cannot be happy. But when near there is a close person whom you love, life becomes fine irrespective of where you live and what you have. But the loneliness fills a life with sadness. But I do not want to speak about sadness anymore. I am glad that I have an opportunity to write to you and I am glad that you write to me. And at present it really causes a smile on my face. I should finish my letter. You have the big family? What do you look for in a soulmate? If you do not want, you may do not answer my questions. I travelled in Russia, but never not travelled outside of my country. I very much want to visit your country. It so is interesting. I have no any relatives who live about me. But I have some girlfriends, only one best girlfriend. Her name Elena. We are friends 18 years. She the true friend and always helps me, as well as I help her. She has very kind heart. For the sake of our friendship we can return all what we have. I am very glad that I have such girlfriend. Such friends as she - the big rarity. I hope to receive your letter soon. Sincerely and with the best regards. Marina.

Letter 3

Hi! I am frankly glad that again I have a possibility to write you. Today I saw my mother in my dream and thought that I have to tell you about my mother, because when I say about her - I tell about my family. It is really so because I have never seen my grandfather and grandmother and I don't have brothers or sisters. I was the only one child in the family, and my family consisted of two people - my mother and I. I really feel great proud when I say about my mother because she was a very good woman. But together with this, every time the recollections about my mother cause tears and I can't keep them. My mother died when I was 16 years old. Three years before her death my mom has damage in road accident. She was standing in the street and she was knocked down by a car. Probably the driver was strongly drunk, because the witnesses said that the car moved by zigzag and suddenly appeared on pavement. As a result of collision my mum was paralysed. She spent three years in the wheelchair. I looked after her did all that was in my forces to make a life for which she was fated since this moment - easy and joyful. I spent little time with my friends and practically all my free time I spent near my mother. I was crazy happy when mother smiled, because she smiled very seldom. She was ashamed of her helplessness. Every time when I was going home after school I looked at the window and every time my mother met me. She was looking through the window and smiled. It happens always. She met me every day and never forgot. That's why I felt alarm at once when several years ago I looked at the window and didn't see my mother there. I understood that something is wrong. I rushed home with tears in my eyes. When I oped the door I understood that I stayed alone. As usual my mother was sitting in her chair with the smile. But she was dead. I remember how I stretched my arm and touched her pulse. It got dark in my eyes and my feet didn't obey me. I couldn't stand. I thought I would go mad. I have felt that I lose consciousness and lain on the floor. I sobbed and couldn't quiet down. I couldn't imagine that I will live without mom. This was the person I lived for. All I did in my live I did for her. She was such a good mother. She taught me everything I can do in this life. My mother dreamt to bring me up as an honest and decent lady. I was the only child and mother gave me endless love. And I tried to do all to be worthy daughter, to be worthy her love. And I hope that I became such a lady as my mother wanted to see me. Now I appreciate the difficulties of that time in a different way. Difficulties train the character. I lived without help and support; I went through different difficulties about which I don't want to speak. But I have gone trough these difficulties and remember this I feel that everything I have done correctly. My mother always told me that one should look at difficulties with smile not mentioning that there is a shout of despair in the throat and there are tears in eyes. One should be strong and proud - as my mother was. Forgive me that I have told you about this so in detail. But I say about my mother seldom. But when I say about her I can't do it in couple words. I loved her very much and that's why I told you little things about her. Forgive me. I decided to share my recollections with you as with a friend, because I didn't speak about her with anybody for a long time. Forgive me that my letter is a sad, big and uninteresting. Simply when I begin to say about my mother I can't stop. But I promise not to write such letters anymore. Now I rent flat in Zvenigovo. There is a one room, kitchen and bathroom. I understand that this is a little flat but I feel convenient in it. And it is not far from my work. It takes me 20 minutes to get to the shop. I often walk to my work when I am not late and the weather is good. Sometimes I get to the shop by bus. But I don't like it because the buses are always full and it is not convenient to stand there. Is the nationality of a person important to you if you are to care for them? I don't have such prejudices. the nationality is not important for me. I don't look at eyes, color of the skin. And I don't think where a person was born. I want to find a man with kind heart. I love kindness and I hate a rage. For me the most important in a man - honesty and kindness. Without it is impossible to create the world of harmony and love. Roughness destroys love. I am ready to give all my love to a man who also is ready to give me his love. I think that in any relations the main thing - mutual respect and mutual understanding. I think it not so much. The rest is not important for me. Kindness. Honesty. Respect. I and my girlfriend Elena became girlfriends because we lived in the nearby houses and also together went to school. I have no pets, but I dream to have a dog. Only I cannot solve what dog I want. I equally love the big and small dogs. Likely my choice will stop on the big dog because I live alone. I am afraid to remain at home alone, because the crimes in Russia at the highest level. But probable with the big dog it will not be so fear. I really am the good cook and I like to cook.
I have to finish. Sincerely with best regards. Marina.

Letter 4

Hi! Today I had so much work that I was afraid that I wouldn't have time to get your letter. And I have to say that this frightened me. But now I have found free time and very glad. Thank you for your kind letter. My last letter was sad. That's why today I will try not to write about sad things. Today my colleges have good mood because today all our collective goes to the circle. This is a Moscow Zoo which has come to Cheboksary for a week. This is great news because The Moscow Zoo Is the biggest zoo in the country. So everybody discuss only this news. Everybody wants to visit the ZOO because the tour will last only for several days. I like animals very much and I have never seen Moscow Zoo. I have never seen alive tigers and bears. Have you ever seen a tiger or a bear? The biggest animal I saw in my life is a horse. I like horses very much and think that these are the most beautiful animals in the planet. As matter of fact I have always dreamt to have some pets - a cat or a dog. But when I think that a little puppy will wait for me at home alone I feel pity. That's why I don't have pets. I always wait for weekends with impatience, because I get tired mentally and physically at the work. That's why weekends are the only possibility for me to rest and to get new forces. Weekends I spend differently. Sometimes I want simply to rest in my apartment. I like my apartment - little and cozy. On weekends I always clean the apartment properly. I like purity. And though I always try to keep my apartment clean, there is always something to do about the house on weekends. But when I want really to relax I listen to music or read books. I like to read books especially historical novels about ancient Russia or other countries. I don't like to read western or detectives, though lately I read stories about Sherlock Holmes with pleasure. I like to spend time with my friends. I have two best girl-friends. We are friends for 18 years. When we meet with girl-friends the air is filling with laughter. We like to walk and communicate, we go to movie and to the park. If you want I can tell you about my friends. I like to spend time in nature in the open air very much. In Russia camping is very popular. I adore to go to the forest and to live in a tent though now I have seldom such an opportunity. I like to look at night fire. I like to look at the stars very much.The sky is strewed with stars. It is incredible beautiful. I like to cook on the fire. There is no more wonderful when in the air the fragrances of forest, river and smoke mix together. I am romantic undoubtedly. I really like cooking. I know that I do it well, because I started cooking from childhood. My mother taught me many things including cooking. She said: "Lady who can cook well don't have disadvantages and demerits, because tasty food is a way to the man's heart. May be she is right. I like Russian dishes and my favourite dish is pancakes. I am not sure if you know such dish. This is a Russian national dish. The pancake is round thin bread. It is possible to eat it with a stuffing and without. For a stuffing we use meat forcemeat, cottage cheese or jam. It depends on what pancakes you want. What dishes do you prefer? I don't know if I told you about my father. It is unpleasant for me but I have to tell you about it. I have never seen him. My mother told me that he had left us when I was very little. That's why I don't remember him. I have never asked my mother about him. And she didn't tell me. To tell the truth I don't want to know where he is and what he is now. I have a question for you. Are there many divorces in your country? In Russia it is a very frequent thing. Many men in Russia are alcoholics and that's why women can't live with them further. My mother didn't married anymore and that's why I don't have brother or sister. I very much love children. Children our future. They raise mood. If I will have children I will love them more than life. I never thought of how many children I want to have. Such decision is necessary accepting together with a man which becomes the father of these children. For me it is not important where to live, Russia, America or other country. It not the main thing. The main thing that there was a love. The main thing - together with the beloved. Marina.

Letter 6

Hi, my dear friend! I hope you not against if I say so. Thank you for your letter. From day to day I feel more necessity to get your letter. My mood has become better again when I have got your letter. I should say that when I have good mood my buyers too smile to me. So healthy smiles of our children now depend on your letters (smile again). I told you about my visiting Zoo and I want to tell you about it. My colleges and I were very surprised that there were so many different animals. But the most excitement was caused by the moment when we saw an elephant. This was a very big animal. Also we liked a tiger. It lied in the hutch and looked at us tenderly. but I know that this is a very strong and dangerous animal. I saw a camel. Oh, have you seen it? This is a very proud animal? I was impressed by his constant tranquility. We walked in the Zoo for long and got cold. Therefore we with the girlfriend ate much hot pies also drank hot tea. I very much love tea! After Zoo we have together come back home, we were cheerful and pleased. By the way, when I came to work today my mood was bad, because my girl-friend fell ill and now she is in the hospital. The saddest thing is that she has birthday today. She is 30 years old today. Unfortunately she will spend her birthday in the hospital. But have already talked with the doctor and I will be allowed to spend the evening in the her chamber. In the evening I will bake a cake, buy balloons and go to the hospital. I want very much that she have good mood on her birthday. This my best friend. By the way, she works with me in the shop. As matter of fact I have only two real friends - Elena and Veronica. Elena is that lady who is in the hospital. Veronica has left to the north for three months. Her grandmother lives there. My friends are not married too. We are friends for 20 years already. Elena and I are like sisters. Elena and I like to walk. Usually we walk in the park. But also we like to spend time in Elena vegetable garden. She lives in an old wooden house. I don't know if you have seen such houses. This are the houses which were built before the second world war, in the fortieth years. These are very old houses which don't have bath and running water. So people have to take water outside in the well or in a pit. In modern world such conditions seem very terrible, but this is really so. We like to spend time in Elena vegetable garden. There she grows potato, tomatoes and cucumbers not to buy them in the market, because in winter the prices of these products rise very high. Every winter Elena and I make a big Snowman by big snow balls. We make a carrot instead of nose and potatoes instead of eyes. It is very funny. All neighbor's children come to see it. First time we made such a Snowman 16 years ago. Since that time we do every year. This is a tradition for us. We pour it with water to cover with ice. So it stands for the whole winter. I like Zvenigovo. Many people in our village know each other. We have little buildings - maximum 4 floors. Veronica says that she wants to live in a big city. I don't know where it is better. Big city is a big traffic, fast rhythm of life, garlands of fires, lightning shop windows, high buildings, fountains, cinemas, parks, attractions, theatres. It is wonderful, of course I like it. But our village is a fresh air, a lot of trees and birds, silent and comfort no hubris and vanity inherent for big cities. We have a lot of small and large lakes and rivers. The places are very beautiful. If there were no criminal the place could be considered as a paradise. But alas, the criminal in small cities, as well as in the big cities is an integral part our life. Unfortunately criminal in Russia is situated on a very high level. But I don't want to tell about sad things. I have to finish my letter. I don't want but I have to. Today when I will come to Elena we will speak about you. She likes to ask about you and I like to tell her. I wanted to ask you what makes you happy? Now I am happy to get your letters. I am also happy that I have friends. I think thank you are my friend too. Sincerely yours and with best wishes.
Marina.

Letter 7

Hi! The day is wonderful today and the weather is good. The sun is shining all the day. To add to all this I have got your letter and my happiness doesn't have limits. And what about your weather? May be today after work I will go home by on foot. I like to walk along the street and to breath fresh air, especially when the weather It is good. As a matter of fact I don't want to go home. It is very boring and lonely at home. Sometimes I don't mention it, but sometimes when I come home with good mood, I want to talk very much, to share thoughts with anybody, to have fun. But my flat is empty and I have to be in full solitude. And my good mood disappears. I simply sit down in an arm-chair and look at the window. And when the silence deafen me when I hear as My blood flows in my veins, I hear movement of my eyelashes, at that moment becomes unbearably and my heart compresses. I don't know how to struggle with it. I can listen to music or read a book. But in some moment I understand that I just deceive myself. In fact I want a beloved person to be near me, with whom I could spend evenings, to meet morning, to speak about yesterday and to dream about tomorrow day. I want to walk and to feel a strong man arm holds me. I don't want to cook meals only for myself. I want somebody to appreciate it. But enough about it. I told you that I visited Elena in hospital. I was there for two hours and Elena was very happy that I would spend her birthday with her. She told me that may be she wouldn't be in the hospital for long. She has not complicated inflammation of the throat. I brought Elene a chocolate cake, flowers and balloons. These balloons are one color, blue - this is my favorite color. And I hope that Elena like it too. And do you like blue color? Elena and I spoke about you. I said that you are a very good man. Elena told me and wished good luck in my relations with you. Sincerely, Marina.

Letter 8

Hi, again. I began writing the letter in the morning. Now it is 2 p.m. already. Can you imagine? Today to us in shop there passed family. They bought a computer. The little boy there was. I have asked him: Of what you dream? He has answered, that he dreams what to begin adults as soon as possible. It was so funny. I often remember childhood. I always dreamed to become a grown up as soon as possible. As every child I completely believed that grownups don't have problems at all. I dreamt in the childhood and I dream now. Of course, the world of dreams is an illusive world. We live in a real life, so we can't to sink into the world of dreams and phantasies for long. When a dream becomes obsession, it can bring only pain and disappointment. Practically dreams do not always realize. It happens that you use all power, all aspiration to make the dream come true. But as much you try, not all in this life depend on us. When the dream for a long time does not come true, as though you did not try, dream ceases to be that star, which was for you lighthouse in ocean of the life, which illuminated your way. But anyway, I think that it is impossible to live without dreams and hopes. When there is a dream, the life is filled with sense.

You agree with me?I am surprised that I write you all this. I have never had a person, with whom I could share my thoughts. But now I have found you, and I am very glad. Forgive me for my frankness. If I said something superfluous forgive me please. Do you like when your friends come to your home? I like very much when my friends come at my place. I like to cook and that's why I regale them different tasty dishes. Elena is a good cooker too and she often helps me. We often cook different dishes and regale each other. I also like to watch films with my friends at my place. It is a pity I don't have VHS or DVD players.live world. The dreams contribute variety in ordinary and grey life.

Our flats are very bad equiped for live. I even don't have telephone. I always help Elena with the vegetable garden, when necessary, today I shall water plants of tomatoes and cucumbers. I like to cook salad from fresh vegetables, from garden Elena. Last time we went camping the last summer. We went to coast of the river with tents and went for a drive on a boat. I like to swim. I very much love water and I like to swim away very far. Most my best memories remained from the city of Saint Petersburg. It is very beautiful city, it cannot be described words, it is necessary for seeing. I will wait for your letter with impatience. Marina.

Letter 9

Hi! I am very glad that you have written me. Thank you very much. I like your letters very much and wait for them every day. Today there was very strong rain at night. The rain went all the night long. In the morning when I go in the street I have seen that all footpaths and roads completely are covered rain. But I like such weather. When our city is covered with a veil of rain, all people gloomy and sad. It's strangely, but weather so influenced on mood of people. People do not notice beauty which surrounded them. But only not I. In me such weather wakens the big energy and fine mood. I remember once upon a time I have suggested to Elena to walk, when in the street was a strong rain. But she is surprised spoke: "In the street a pools, the rain and a wind. I am not a lunatic to walk in such weather. I shall better sit at home and to watch TV." Then I have told to my girlfriend that it is necessary to be able to search for the positive moments in negative. And necessary to be able to enjoy what you have at present. I have described to her the rain so, how I see it. After she has listened to me, we at once have gone to walk. Elena is the seller as me. We work together. Today I will go to her in hospital once again. I hope that soon Elena will be healthy and we will be happy to meet in our shop. I like all seasons. I like autumn in Kanash. Yellow leaves, gold trees. It is so wonderful to walk in the park and to listen how leaves rustle under feet, and to feel in the air the smell of arriving winter. And clouds floating in the sky; and birds are departing to the warm grounds. And at night the sky begins to cry. The rain knocks on windows and roofs. A lightning illuminates for shares of second the empty streets. It is fine. In such weather it would be desirable to appear in a small room with a warm fireplace. Weak light and singing of a cricket. And if near there will be a beloved - it will be paradise. How you think? What can be finer than romantic evening in rainy day? I at all do not know what season I like more. As well as all people, I wait for the summer in the winter, and in the summer I wait for the winter. But all the same Russian winter is delightful. All the world around is white. Only fur-trees with the green clothes heat a look. And falls of snow bewitches. Especially in the evening. Flows of light from a window, and on a background of black sky, small snowflakes are similar to stars. If during this moment for a long time you look at the sky - it seems that you flies through these wonderful snowflakes towards something unknown. I like spring in Kanash. The world as though is born again. Air is filled with freshness. All troubles and failures thawed together with snow. The sounds of the baby birds chirping for the first time. Summer is a fine mood, the desire to learn the world, to have a rest and enjoy life. I feel that I rambling on. Forgive me. Simply now I have romantic mood. I also dream of that someone like you strong would hold me in arms, would tenderly kiss me in a neck and whispered tender words of love in my ear. It will be the most remarkable moment. Elena also rents an apartment in Cheboksary, but her apartment is in the other area of city. To visit Elena, I am required drive by bus 20 minutes or 40-50 minutes to go on foot. Sincerely, Marina.

Letter 10

Hi my friend!!!! I am very glad that you have written. Many thanks. You have again raised my mood and have placed a happy smile on my face. By the way, today I went to job being absolutely confident that you write to me today. Earlier I always went with an thought that you probably yet have not written, but today for the first time I went with an thought that your letter waits for me already. I went on the street and I smiled. I could not hide my smile. People which passed near to me looked back on me. Ladies in Russia smile rarely, because life is filled with different problems, cares, difficulties and obstacles. All this prevails over little fortunes which the lady has in her life. In Russia the lady stands on the same stair as the man already for a long time. She can do the same work as the man can. Very often In Russia the lady does the man's work - the heavy physical work. In the 19th century one Russian poet wrote about Russian woman: "Russian woman can enter in the burning house and she can stop frightened horse running towards her". The only thing she lacks is simple warm and caress, which she wants to receive from a man. This is the problem of Russian men. The Russian lady does everything for the man but doesn't get anything from him. All what she needs is at least a couple of tender words and gentle touching of his hands. Is it really so difficult? Is it really difficult to present your lady a romantic evening and a supper with candles? In Russia as a rule such gift give lady for a man, but not a man for lady. When a woman carry heavy bags in the street no man will help her, he will only turn his look away and go farther. That's why the Russian lady never feels happy at her heart. You say that I am beautiful. In Russia I am not considered like a beautiful lady. Russian men, practically all of them, usually treat to ladies disrespectfully. They consider that woman only have to work, to cook, to wash cloths and entertain the man when he wants. For the Russian man it is a usual thing to offend a woman. I like to cook and to wash cloths but sometimes I would like to receive simple caress, love and attention. I don't want to offend all the men. Of course there are good men in Russia, but there are few of them. Men frequently speak dirty words (not normative lexicon) when speak with lady and consider that in it there is nothing bad. I had boyfriend. We had good time together. He was kind. But he liked to drink. When he got drunk he became an absolutely other person. He talked with me with bad and dirty words. The time passed and his love to alcohol became a habit. He became another person - rude and evil. Has taken a great interest in beating me, frequently struck and knocked me by hands and the next day he smiled and talked with me as if nothing had happened. I began to be afraid of him and and I have left him. My soul was wounded very much. After this I couldn't make myself get acquainted with another man. Now I don't trust Russian men. I am afraid to give my love but get in lieu thereof the roughness. If you have disagreements with lady, you can apply roughness? But I don't want to finish the letter with not good words. So I will tell you about Elena. Soon she will recover. Elena feels good and sais hello to you. I hope that soon she will be at home and returns to the work. I feel lonely without her. We spent good time during the dinner in the policlinic canteen. The love does not submit to any laws and rules. Many consider that to understand true love, years are necessary. But so frequently people spend years to study each other, to understand that are created to each other, try to understand love it whether or not. Years will pass, life will pass, and people understand that they were mistaken. But at the same time so frequently is enough one glance to understand that this person - destiny. I think and I am sure that the love does not happen identical. For love really there are no laws, barrier, rules and textbooks. I feel, that with each letter you become closer, we search for the same things in the person, but at the same time I should be sure in my feelings to you as will prompt me heart. Your Marina.

Letter 11

Hi my dear! Today fine day. But only for one reason - I have received your letter. And all the rest become unimportant for me. Today I really have no opportunity to write much. Please forgive me. But I have enough time to tell to you that I thought of you and waited when the opportunity to write to you will appear. But I have time to tell the main thing. I do not know why, but today I have woken up earlier than usually. I could not fall asleep again. In the street already was sunlight. I sat near a window and began to look at street. Unexpectedly the small birdie sat down on a window and began to sing. She so beautifully sang. She looked at me and sang. The birdie at all was not afraid of me. I looked at this birdie and thought that you now somewhere there, far. I have thought that maybe you sleep and see me in your dream. And I have thought, if I was a birdie, I too would sit down to you on a window and began to sing my song. I have told to a birdie: "Fly off, my small birdie, and sing this song to my far but close friend. Tell him that I think of him". And in this moment the birdie flinch and fly off, as though she has heard my words. And I have thought, maybe this birdie really will fly to you and will sing her beautiful song. So if you will see near to yourself a small birdie which beautifully sings know that I have sent this song to you. Today I have happy news. Elena has recovered and now she already at home. Elena came to me at the work to see and please me. She said that soon she will work. I was happy that soon I will be able to see Elena more often. I think to you it will be interesting to find out about Elena's parents. Parents Elena live in Kanash and I frequently see them, when I come to Elena. Sometimes In the summer in warm weather we with Elena to go to the beach lake. Here we have much beaches to swim and sunbathing. I like to swim. I very much love water and I like to swim away very far. It is required approximately 2 hours to reach up to lake. I and Elena we like to visit museums and picture gallery.But we not frequently visit them because we already all saw. We also have big stores, but they not so big as for you. The blue sky, the bright sun, warm rain, stars in the night sky, your letters make of me happy. I like to read your letters and to find out about you more. Your letters makes me happy and they it is valid make me smile. Forgive, but I should go. I want to send you my kiss if you do not object. Your Marina.

Letter 12

Hi, my far, but dear friend. Many thanks for your letter. It was the long-awaited letter. I am really madly glad to receive your letter. I am really glad that I have found you. I should tell to you that I have ocean of emotions and sensations which I had no in my heart before. And on this, my reason and my heart say me that I should answer by sincerity your constant sincerity. My heart and my reason says me that I should tell what I feel now because it is a part of our friendship and I should share it with you. I should tell that it was required all the day to write and think over this letter, because I wanted to say just the right things to you. I didn't want to offend or upset you in anyway, and it really bothered me that saying something wrong may do that. I normally speak directly from my heart, and I am right now, but sometimes, words must be carefully chosen. I feel somewhat lost when I have no opportunity to use a computer to read your letter. In my soul, I feel contentment and joy when I think of you. I have never done this in my life, (tried to initiate a relationship halfway across the world), and I might have much to learn about how to proceed, but I am more than willing to learn whatever it takes to succeed if that is your desire as well. I also believe that couples should be the best friends possible, which trust and share with each other everything that they feel. I do not know if my word and thoughts make sense to you, and I try very hard to put them in typed words that you will feel and understand. I believe in God, and I believe that I have been put through trials to prepare me for meeting a man with whom I will spend the rest of my life loving, to better appreciate him, respect him and cherish the love, that he would give; only asking that I return the same. I hope that my words and letters are not boring to you, but they are much more than mere words, they are my thoughts and feelings, and I send them out to you. I very much desire that you find it in your heart and are comfortable with sharing your personal feelings with me, I wish to know you on a more intimate level, I would like you to share your dreams, your hopes, your feelings of the heart with me, I truly wish to connect with you on a level that goes way beyond mere friendship. Please do not think me foolish for thinking these things, I believe that in order for anything to succeed, you have to be honest, and that is what I am doing with you. Could you close your eyes for just a minute, and think and dream of what a life we could share, what it would be like, the fun of learning each other. I really believe that dreams do come true for people which dare to believe in dreams, because if they believe in them hard enough, dreams could become in reality. I guess that you are shocked that I feel this way, but here, where I was raised, the gift of true love from a man is something that is more similar to a Mirage or self-deception, rather than mutual feeling which two enamored people can give each other. I hope that I am not rambling on with my words. I have so much that I wish to share with you, and each time I write to you, I feel there is never enough time to say everything that I want to say, and I always feel that I have forgotten something important that I wanted to share with you, when I speak of you and I think of you, it does not matter for me what anyone else thinks. I want to tell that you are very beautiful for me. I mean, I find that you are not only attractive as a man, I also speak of the beauty that is within you, beauty of your internal world, and alas, this particular type of beauty is very special and rare. Most men have only appearances, but not have beauty inside, and this is where true beauty is. This, is that for me is the most important and significant in all limits of my character, my soul and my consciousness. Your words spoken to me with so much kindness and care, they express the beauty within you. I think that you are truly handsome, the essence of what beauty should be, and there is nothing that anyone could say to me that would compel to change my mind even a little bit. I want to reduce essence of all my letter only to one thought. I do not know if I could clearly explain all my thoughts and feelings, which overflow me now, or not. I want to tell that I feel, we become very good friends and I really enjoy our friendship. I aspire to learn you more and I dare to hope that you suppose a thought that our relations can develop more than it enough for simple friendship. It is that way which I feel. As always I hope that my letter finds you in good health and spirits, and I hope that every yours wish you have comes true one day. I will look forward to your reply as always with anticipation and impatience.... I hope that your reply is not of a harsh nature, and I look forward to its arrival. With tenderness, Marina.

Letter 13

Hi! Thanks for your letter. My heart calms down when I receive your letter. Today Elena came to the work first day after disease. You don't believe we talked very long. As we did not see each other for the whole year. We got bored each other. But now we will meet more often and it pleases me. Elena sent you hello again. She is glad for me and you that our relations continue. I dream and think about you and about me. It so is surprising. I look in a window, there, where the sky and the ground merge in a single whole. I try to be lost in this imagined world, I try to weaken my sight, that all what I see became indistinct, dim. And then your image has emerged before my eyes. And I already see how you go along the street though I absolutely have no idea what your street look like. But I see you, I see as you smile, as at cinema in the slowed down action you come nearer to me, and your image becomes more and more precise. You speak something but I do not hear you. But I read on your lips, and my heart with fatal delight understands what you speak me. And these your words burn me from within. During the some moment I so sink in this world of illusions that I cease to understand where a reality. But the next second all breaks off and again before my eyes the grey sky, the white ground and people which at all do not suspect what occurs in my heart. It is so unusual to me, and in same time I feel so conveniently as if I know you the whole eternity. And I am sure that it not accidentally. And it is not important what waits for me in the nearest future; I know that I already have found remarkable, kind and good a man and a friend. And if I will see him, if I meet him and I can look in his eyes, I can tell to him everything what I cannot tell in letters, I will be madly happy. Now, today, this minute not important, where will bring me this way. I know that it is true road. I live not the future, - I live today, and exactly today I live by bright and happy life. I should finish the letter. In relations with lady are you a dominating part? I have in view of - you like more to be the leader and to make all decisions personally or you like to discuss questions with lady and to make a decision together? I think that it is good when the problems are solved together. Even if the problem is of one of the spouse. I think it is good when the spouses tell each other their problems. I think about mine mom and frequently I see her in dream. And you can share with me all your sad ideas. Tonight I shall go to house Elena whether to find out all in the order with her and I shall necessarily pass her hello from you. I think, that tomorrow or the day after tomorrow will Elena be returning to work. Your Marina.

Letter 14

Hi my soul! I with trembling heart waited your letter. Thank you for told all what you think. Thanks for your letter. You have written to me and it means that one more day I will be lived with good mood. I want to describe to you my day completely, since morning and till the night. At 6:45 rattle my alarm clock. I do not love my alarm clock. Because it so loudly rattle, that each time I jump as scalded. I rise with good mood because in dream I saw you. At 7:00 I go to a bathroom and I THINK OF YOU! I wash and I clean a teeth. At 7:20 I cook a breakfast, as a rule strong tea or coffee and a sandwich. I drink tea and I THINK OF YOU! At 7:30 I go to work. Usually, if weather good, I go on foot and I THINK OF YOU! I like to go on foot since morning. Air clean and fresh. To job I come vigorous and cheerful. At 7:55 I go to a cabinet where works my girlfriend. As a rule she already on work at this time. If there is an opportunity I receive your letter. If the opportunity is not present I receive it later. At 8:00 I start to work and I THINK OF YOU! At 10:00 I go on street and I THINK OF YOU! I breathe fresh air of 10 minutes and come back to work. At 12:30 a dining breaks. I go home for a dinner and I THINK OF YOU! I reach up to a house by a trolley bus. At 13:00 I eat and at 13:10 I go again for work and I THINK OF YOU! I go by a bus but I abandon a trolley bus earlier, than it is necessary, to again take a walk on fresh air And TO THINK OF YOU! At 13:30 I again work and I THINK OF YOU! (Though in my work is impossible be distracted and think about something another except for work)(Smile) At 15:30 we with my employees do a small break and we drink tea for have a rest. I was not capable to drink tea because I THINK OF YOU! During the working day when there is an opportunity I answer your letter. At 17:00 I go home. I go on foot, slowly. I feel it self perfectly because I THINK OF YOU! At 17:40 I take a shower and I imagine that YOU WITH ME! (Smile) At 18:00 I have supper, alone, but I smile, because I imagine that YOU SIT OPPOSITE TO ME! At 19:00 I go for walk with my girlfriend (but it happens seldom). We walk in park. I THINK OF YOU! If I do not go for walk, I listen to music, I read the book, I watch TV, I knit, I make various homework and I THINK OF YOU! (Of course not all simultaneously)(Smile). At 23:00 I lie down to sleep. Usually I fall asleep very quickly because I THINK OF YOU! Only do not think that all my days pass so. It is an approximate variant. Every day passes on miscellaneous. But is that peculiar to each my day: IT'S MY THOUGHTS OF YOU!!! Your and only your Marina.

Letter 15

Hello my love!!! My love, I very much love you. I still never met such fine person, as you. And I am glad, that we with you were reduced with destiny. You the ANGEL, who has gone down from heavens kindling my heart! I have found you, and you me! I want, that you knew, I shall always love you! You for me will always stay the most desired, gentle, tender, unique and the beloved in my life! It is pleasant to me in you absolutely all. You - the most delightful creation on the ground, the most gentle, sensual and passionate. I very much - very much LOVE you. Always and everywhere, there is no you better. You are those, what is actually, is not present drops of pretence - I love you for it even more strongly. I with impatience wait for the moment when I shall fall in your tender embraces, and I shall inhale your aroma, repeating your name, listening to your voice and, again and again, peering in affable features of your person. At night I see your beautiful person, a mouth, I present, as you concern me the charming lips. With you my life was filled with sense, now I know, that I want. And I want TO be WITH YOU, to be always, all life. I for you both in fire and in water, everywhere, where you will call. You my ray of light in this heart-breaking darkness of a life. Thanks you that you are! I love you! I shall always love you, my heart will not cease to beat yet. When I think of you so deafening my heart loudly knocks, it is a pity, that you now do not hear him. Any idea has no value, if this idea not about you. All my desires and dreams are connected only to you. Anything and nobody will break my feelings to you. It seems to me, that at times even in dream I admit to you love, I fall asleep physically without you, but I wake up always with your name on lips. Know, loved, that near to you there is a person, whose heart is beaten ONLY FOR YOU. I very strongly love you, I simply live you, one day when I do not receive from you letters - as if eternity, thanks you for all: for your love and care. You are of what I dreamed all life for whom waited the happiness. Fairly, I do not know how to express in words even a part of that is created at me on soul. If I was an ice floe, I would thaw from one your sight, be I a flower - I eternally would blossom only for you and if I was a song on light white it would not be more wonderful than this music because she for you, only for you. But to a great regret, and I can and fortunately, simply the person. With loving heart, with singing soul. And except for you I so yet did not love anybody, anybody so did not wish. I LOVE YOU!!! My heart is beaten for you. I live only for you. And all this too for you. I cannot without you, I miss, I love you simply that you are. Loved mine, I with impatience shall wait from you the letter. And I think, that you will write already soon to me. Yours Marina.

Letter 16

Hello my love. Loved, I always think of you! From a dawn up to a decline and from a decline till a dawn! It seems to me, I without you cannot live and day, minute, second! I want to feel always heat of your body, your sweet lips. You for me the most dear in the world! I value you! I do not know, as though I could live without you, I do not present, as earlier I could without you. You for me, most. I do not want anybody another. You for me one the most good and loved. At me it for the first time, that I have fallen in love and to others I do not pay attention - you have made it! You have forced me to believe in the present love - and my love it you! I madly love you!!! I very much - very much love you, you at all do not imagine, as far as is strong, you became sense of my life. I cannot transfer you the love words at all as it is simply impossible. You the best in the world the man are the fact. I so would like your love, your heat and tenderness. I would like, that once, you have told: Marina Your I forever, want, that you passionately would whisper to me it on an ear, have touched my cheek the cheek. Sometimes my dreams of you come so far, that it seems to me, as if I have gone mad, but I like to be a lunatic because I am glad that I can though to dream of you, in fact dream to me can to forbid nobody. I want to wake up in the mornings in your gentle, tender embraces. Only becon, and I shall go for you, call, and I shall come at any time as it would not be borrowed, I shall come, I shall come tearing along, you to me are the most important on light, you are necessary for me, as air, as water, as food. But recently it is no time to me eat, drink, breathe and other as I constantly think and I dream of you. When I close eyes, it would be desirable to stretch a hand, to touch you. But it only your image. I can look at him only. And me of it so a little. It would be desirable to be closer. As far as physical borders only allow. To kiss you, to embrace, be dissolved in you. My condition is similar to illness. But I would not like to be treated for it at all. Well, she has developed into the chronic form. I shall store for you the warm feelings, I shall listen to nobody, only an internal voice and palpation of the heart. Love this delightful madness filled with tears and pleasure, languor, expectation. When you completely feel it, like all heart, each cell of all organism, dream in the afternoon and at night only of one, to see you. My loved, I on you very much miss. I cannot without you. I precisely know, that without you to me to not live. You have learned me to love, you have learned me to be such what I am. Thanks you for it. I shall make everything, everything to kindle your heart the love, the overflown feelings, and all because my life without you grey existence, without you will be gloomy and cold even the most solar, warm day. On it I stop.

…and so on until the first letter hinting at visa….

Without the passport for travel abroad. And in general, which documents are necessary what to visit me.

At us in the country completely other orders, other rules and other laws. I have told to you the absolute truth. I do not understand, why you do not want to trust me. By your words it is visible, that you trust people which at all you do not know more. You have told to me, that you would trust a site which is located in Internet, than to the Russian travel agency. I have told to you only that have told to me in travel agency. By your words it is visible, that you do not trust not only to travel agency, but also me. You do not trust me?

Hi my love!!! I am glad to receive your letter. My lovely I should apologize that I have not written to you in the days off. Yesterday I had an entertainment. I went to walk together with Elena. First we with it walked along the street because in the street it was warm and the sun shined. We with it have decided, that while there is such weather it is necessary for it to enjoy. We walked on city. We with it have bypassed almost all city. Were in all places. Went to park. Now on trees almost there was no any leaf. But in park it was all the same beautiful. I told Elena about you. I spoke that you very good person. I very strongly love you. I have told to it, that you can acquaint her with the man. But only it will be not now. It will be after we shall meet you. My lovely after we have taken a walk in the street, we have gone to cinema. We went on film which refers to "Welcome in paradise". It has very much liked us. This film about people which sell drugs and adventurers. Film began that there was a failure of the plane on which transported drugs. After that show island on which the main heroes live. It is the young guy and the girl. They are engaged in underwater immersings and search for the ancient sunk ships. And they casually find this plane. Then there are people which want to take hold of this plane. All comes to an end that these people put in prison, and the girl and the guy have continued life on this fantastic island. I think, that you looked this film. Though I am not sure in it. My lovely so we have lead the days off. Now I want to tell to you, that I not absolutely understand, by what exactly you speak to me about money. You can tell to me, you will help me whether or not??? I do not understand you. You write me that there are people which are engaged in a deceit in Internet. I heard about it. But what exactly you want to tell to me it? You accuse me in it? Explain to me it, please. I shall wait for your explanations with impatience. Yours Marina.
