Letter(s) to S. H. (USA)

Letter 1

I must apologize to you for my slow response here. I've been busier than usual and have just not had much time to sit and write to you.
I hope you remember me? I have written to you the short letter and you have answered me. I wanted to answer at once to not keep you waiting for my answer, but I got access to a computer only now. Please, forgive me. I am very glad that you have answered to my letter. Thank you that you have found time for answer.
Probably first of all I should write the most important thing. I hope and I think you are not very much afflicted that I live not in your country (I think you already know about it). But I very much hope that it does not frighten you, because I am the same lady like many other ladies living in the different countries. I am the same person with heart and soul. I very much am afraid that my nationality and my residence will disappoint you and you will not write to me more, but at the same time I sincerely hope that nationality and distinction of cultures for you is not the most important things in a lady. And if your interest is not limited by distance or borders, I really will be very glad. My country is Russia.
Moscow is the capital of Russia. Now I live in settlement of Gigant.
It's a small settlement, where live a few hundreds inhabitants. Probably if you want to have the best understanding about where I live, I should tell you that my settlement is located close to the big city - Rostov on Don.
It is a city located in Taganrog area - in a southern part of the European Russia, near to Rostov Area and to such known cities as Novocherkassk. In the childhood I dreamed to be a translator of the English language. I dreamed to work with our President to know all state and international secrets! (smile). But the destiny has disposed differently. I think our president doesn't need my services now because I am the children's doctor, and I think that our president would not allow me to examine him (smile)! I began to get education in the comprehensive school with a medical bias. After ending school I entered the Medical University. Now I work in a clinic. I work as an the children's doctor (pediatrist). I already said that my name is Olga. I promised to share with you my picture, I fulfils my promise with worry and with pleasure. I im blonde. My height is 5 feet 6 inches. My weight is 115 pounds. My eyes brown. And of course you should know that I am 29 years old. My birthday is May 16, 1980. I understand that all people have various tastes and interests, but I sincerely hope that my picture and my appearance will be pleasant for you. But if my appearance doesn't conform to your tastes and interests, I will understand you, of course. I the optimist at heart and it's often help me in my life. I already adult woman; and I look at the life with a philosophical shade. But as though I did not try to inspire myself that I absolutely happy woman, I can't do it. I have fine lady friend, I have job and my apartment. But there are things without which people cannot be happy. And for me it's not material things. I have written to you the first and it means that I am ready to share with you my thoughts. I am very glad and grateful to you for that that you have answered me. Anyhow, I hope that you, just as I, have interest in our dialogue, and I will wait your answer. In the end of my letter I want to ask you the most banal questions: what music you like, what movies you prefer. These questions are really interesting for me because I like American movies and American music very much. I with pleasure will tell to you about it in my next letter if you really want to learn more about me.
Do you like your job? Had you ever had experience in correspondence with a friend from other country? Maybe you are more skilled in this than I am? If you do not want to answer these questions, please do not answer. It is simply my female curiosity. I will be very grateful to you also if you will send me your pictures. I will be happy to have your pictures in the computer. With the best regards.

Letter 2

I hope you are glad to receive my letter because when I have received your letter I really was glad. Many thanks. At once I want to tell to you about my opportunities to write letters to you. I write letters on my job because I have no the personal computer. The computer is in an accounting department. Lady who works with a computer will allow me to use a computer in my interests sometimes. It depends not from me, unfortunately. I work from Monday till Friday. It is Russian standard.
Therefore I will not be able to write you and to receive your letters Saturday and on Sunday. But sometimes I work Saturday and even Sunday.
In fact any pain hasn't schedules(smile). Therefore, maybe I will be able to write letters in the Saturday or Sunday.
Well, I will tell you more about my interests. I like various types of music. I like to listen to classical music. I like Dire Straits.
But my favorite is Pink Floyd. They are not similar to anybody. It is a great band. I like Robbie Williams, Madonna, Beatles and many others. In America there are a lot of great musicians. I like Russian musicians but likely you do not know them. OK, movie! I like works of such Russian directors as Konchalovsky, Mikhalkov. My favorite movies are "The Barber of Siberia" and "Burnt by the Sun". It's masterpieces of the Russian cinema. The American movie in Russia is considered like the greatest. I like American movies very much. Brave Heart, the Sixth Sense, Rainman, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, the Godfather, Groundhog Day, the Scent of a Woman, Dragonfly, Apocalypto. My favorite actors - Mel Gibson, Bruce Willis, Al Pacino, Kevin Costner, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Tom Hanks, 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 like your language very much. After school, I continued studying English at the university. I like this language. I have been studying your language for 18 years. I want to know this language perfectly. I know that now I admit mistakes, but I hope you won't angry. But my biggest predilection that will be with me during all my life is the knitting! My mom has taught me to knit in the childhood, and now I knit , jackets and waistcoats for myself and for my friends. I like to knit very much, and I like woolen clothes very much. Basically all warm sweaters that I have, I have made by my own hands. I do not know if in your country the knitting is popular, but here it is very popular. What else to tell about me? I have no children and I was never married, though of course I was in relationship and even thought that it will lead me to the happy future. But now I haven't anything except of bad and painful memoirs.
Thank you for your picture. It is a fine picture. You are a strong and handsome man. I very much like this picture. It is wonderful, when a man combines force and charm. It happens so seldom. Forgive me for my frank words. But I always speak what I think. I think there is nothing bad in it. You have pleasant appearance and it is wonderful.
In Russia it is very widespread personal a garden. I certainly am able much.
I have not understood what you meant when you asked me to tell that I am real? Your words really offend me. What you meant when you say that I can be not real? Of course I am real. And why I should deceive you? I do not understand why I can deceive you? I am looking for serious relations.
But any relations begin with friendship. Any relations are based on trust, friendship, sincerity, fidelity. And I do not understand, how possibly to deceive if the purpose - relations, friendship and maybe the love. Anybody never during all my life could not reproach me in lie. I cannot lie and I do not see in it any purpose. And of course your words offend me. I had in my life a lot of insults and humiliations and I have no desire and time to play games. Here I have been surrounded with the lie often. And I hate lie. I think that sincerity and trust - the strongest base in any relations, especially in relationship of a man and a woman. I do not know why you have asked me if I am for real. You offend me.
How you would describe your character? I never tried to describe features of my character to somebody. I live with a smile on my face and with hope in my heart. I think I can consider myself an optimist.
Yes, I the optimist! :) And maybe it has helped me to dare to write you.
I saw a great deal in my life, and for 28 years I have passed through a lot of vital tests. And I know that I do not need many things to be happy. All I need is a man, friend, soul-mate, love. And my life has led me to the fact that now I seeks it in such way. And I do not think it is bad. How do you think?
I live honestly, and it brings pleasure to me. I know that happiness not requires many things. Likely the main thing that does not suffice me now is love.
People without love cannot be happy. And I speak not only about love between a man and a woman, but also about love to a family for example. I have no family anymore and it really oppresses me. I always recollect my family. You meet your family often? I very much want to return that time when I had family. Are you looking for the soul mate or just a friend? What are you looking for in a soulmate, if you are looking for? I hope to receive your letter soon.
Sincerely and with the best regards.

So what do you do for fun? Hopefully you get to have time for your self. You can't work all the time. You have to make time to have fun.
