Letter 1

Nice lady with great sense of humor... looking for a soulmate to create a family and start new life. Expect respect and love from the man and ready to give the same in return.
I'd like to meet a man with good soul and big heart. The man I could rely and share everything in my life. A guy without big problems who believes in true love and clear relationship for life. A person who respects his partner's opinion and keeps himself as a gentleman...

Maybe we have more in common than it seems? Let's begin with talking...
Hope you like my picture... My friends think I'm good looking :-) I have some more to send.

Well, tell me a little about yourself. Ask any question. I will reply as soon as possible. I don't check Match too often. Better email me at: nice@med.la
Thank you.

Letter 2

Hello Bill.

My name is Ella.
Thank you for your reply. I am really glad to see your message.
I havn't checked my email box for long ago and I'm sorry I havn't written sooner. Hope you understand.

I am new on the Internet and Internet dating. Please, don't be too strict if something is wrong... I am a little abashed :-) I don't know how real it is and how I should behave...

Well, I guess I should tell a little about myself so we could start the conversation.

I am Russian. I was born and I've been living in Russia all my life.
My birthday is on the 25th of January, 1975. Big girl :-)

I am a doctor. I work here in a hospital as a dentist. I have good education, university graduate. I like this work, I like to help people and see their gratitude. :-)

I keep healthy life. Don't smoke and drink rarely. Prefer red wine or a small buttle of good beer. I enjoy sport and outdoors. Bicyclyng is my favourite pastime.

I also have many hobbies and interests. For example history, geography, reading, music and so on. I am trying to be a many-sided person (not sure if this word is correct). I know English and I am
working to improve it. :-)

I am afraid I won't be impartial telling about my personality but I'll try.

I am loyal and honest. I have good sense of humor and natural curiosity. I like animals and children. I like to be happy and make people around me happy too.

I wrote that I am from the USA at my profile. Don't think I lie. I will come there in a couple of months. And I'll stay for about a year.
I wrote that at the profile too. But it seems the profile doesn't work properly.

I've never been outside of Russia and I would like to have a friend in the USA... ;-) Don't think that I im interesting in friendship only.
I've forgotten to say I am single. I've never been married and I have no children... And yes, I am looking for my love. :-)

What person I want? Nothing extraordinary. I don't need a prince or a rich. I want a good guy. Really good guy with soul and heart. Who can love and respect his woman. Who can support and understand me. I like decent and honest men. I have just a few things I can't stand in the
man: rudeness and vulgarity. Hope I didn't scare you :-)

Well I think it is enough for the first letter. I will continue next time.
Please tell me a little about you. What you like and what you think?

Yours truly, Ella.

p.s. The picture is attached. Hope you like me ;-)

Letter 3

Hi Bill.

How are you? Hope everything is all right.
I am so pleased to receive your message. Thank you. I would like to continue our correspondence and get to know you better.

Tell me about your life, your place and people, your friends and yourself, please. Send pictures. I am really interested to see them. I will do the same.

As I told you I am coming to the USA soon. I don't know yet the exact date but I will be there in May for sure. I am in the exchange program. Our government conducts it with the help of the American side every year. I'm sure you heard about such things. In brief I will come there with the group of other doctors and we will work in a hospital or a medical centre for about an year. They will give us an accommodation and pay good salary. They said I will choose the place by myself from the list of the hospitals in California participating in the program. I will keep you informed about it if you would like to.

Bill I study the English language and I would like you to mark my mistakes. I must have fluent English and great vocabulary to get good job in the USA. Hope for your help ;-)

You know it is still a little astonishing to me that I can communicate with you. I am a beginner at Internet, computer and online dating. I am not sceptical just a little doubting how far I should go. ;-) I know you understand me.

I would like to have a friend in the new place when I come. :-) The idea of Internet dating came accidentally. I have been using Internet for reading articles about medicine and corresponding with my friends.
They are doctors too and they live in Moscow. I learned about the programm from them. I applied my resume and I was taken. One day I noticed the online dating service and decided to try. And here is the result. ;-)

Bill I don't have a computer at home. I had an old one but it doesn't work now. I use a rent computer at a cybercafe so I am unable to check my email every day. I am here two or three times a week. And I will write every time I am here.

By the way I live in the small town, not far from Saint Petersburg city.
I work as a doctor (dentist) in a hospital. Not long ago I even couldn't think I would see the USA. And now I plan my travel and talk with you. :-)

Bill I would like to learn about the USA from you. What is it like to live there? I have never been there and I know your country only from movies and TV. I would like to learn more about it and its people. I think you could tell me something. And I will tell you about Russia. :-)

Well, my time is over and I must go. Hope my letter is interesting for you.

Yours sincerely.
Ella

P.S. The picture is enclosed. I am at work.
Thank you for your pictures. I like you.

Letter 4

Hello Bill.

Great to hear from you again. Thank you for your letter.

Next week I will have some tests for exchange programm. So I am a little nervous. I don't remember if I told that I apllied my resume already and they took me into the programm. It means my level of education and experience are right for them. But these tests are in English and psychology. And I am not enogh good in psychology. ;-) I am studying psychology and reading the books at any free minutes now.
Well, hope everything will be all right. Cross fingers for me. :-) By the way I learned about crossing fingers from some movie. We say "pray for me" in Russia.

Bill it is really make me feel closer to you when I read your letter. I would like to know more about you. Please, tell me about your family and friends? What is your daily life? And I will do the same.

To my mind if two persons want to have good relationship they should have common ideas and goals in the life. They also should have some comon traits. Certainly every person is unique and it is great. I
can't imagine all people to be the same. ;-)

Well I better tell you something about me.

My hobbies... I have a lot of them. In another words I have many things I like to do.

I like different activity, some sport and outdoors. My favourites are swimming and bicycling. It helps to keep in good shape and gives energy.

I love dancing. My mother was a good dancer in her youth and teached me to dance almost everything she did. I also can play piano and sing.
:-) Really. I like it.

I enjoy cooking. I prefer Italian, Russian and seafood. Soups and salads are my favourite. I can cook great Ukrainian dishes. My grandmother was born in Ukraine. Later they moved to Russia and my parents met here.

I like reading. I used to read fiction. Later in the university I read a lot about medicine. Now I am interested in history and geography. I like to read about animals and countries I have never seen. Natural science is very interesting. I don't deal with the science. I just try to satisfy my curiosity. :-) I love the BBC programms on TV. It's a pity we don't have the BBC TV channel here.

About having fun I like everything. My sense of humour is friendly. I am very tactful and I hate vulgarity. From entertainment I prefer movie, theatre, walking in the park, occasionally restaurant. I like small cozy places more. My friends and I often go to the coffee shop to drink tea and talk.

I don't have a lot of friends. Just a few from my work and some from the university and childhood. I like the people who can fill you with some ideas or thoughts. Usually people talk about their problem but I think it is not right. Everyone has his own problems and it is not interesting to talk about over and over. Of course, I make the difference when my friend needs problem solving. I like to help people
and do it without any intentions.

Generally I like people and I like to make new friends. I met you a while ago but consider you to be my friend. I am not afraid to be open to people. I think the world is equitable. And everyone must be good.
;-) (Do I seem to be a theosophy fan? :-) Not at all. I just like the
idea.)

I am so sorry to cut my letter. The time is over and I must go.
I promise to write more often.

Yours truly,
Ella.

p.s. I attached another picture of me.

Letter 5

Hi Bill.

I am really glad to receive your message again. Thank you.
At first I want to apologize for not writing sooner. I have been really busy with my tests and work last days. Everything is all right here with me. Now I have a little free time to reply you. ;-)

Last days I have thought a lot of my future. What will it be? :-)
I am not afraid of new things and people. I enjoy having a new experience in my life. But I want a new experience to be positive. And it makes me a little watchful.

I have some plans for my future and I want to share them with you. I think you can understand my uncertainty. I consider myself enough mature person to adapt myself to new environment, culture and people.
But at the same time I would like to have a close friend in the new place just to talk or discuss something or ask for suggestions.

Bill you see I'd like to have the friend in the USA to come there and work in the nearest hospital. I wish to be close to his place or maybe the same city or town to be able to meet and spend time together. It would be great if you could be this person. :-)

I see we don't know each other yet. But I hope we will learn about each other more in the correspondence before our first meeting. ;-)

Well, I'll tell you a little about me and my family. And I hope to hear your story in return.

I was born in Sertolovo and I have been living here all my life. My father is Ukrainian by origin and my mother is Russian. My father is the person who can't sit at the place for a long time. He is a scientist and he goes a lot all over the country. He studies the languages of the little peoples in Russia. Now he and my mother live in Siberia. My mother is a doctor and I go after her. :-)

My parents are good people but they are a little strange in a sense.
When I went to school and studied at the university they lived here in Sertolovo. My mother worked at the hospital where I do now. And my father went on business once a month. After I graduated from the university they left for Northen Siberia and I started the life on my own. They live in a small Yakut settlement now.

I don't blame them for anything. They are great parents and they gave me everything they could do. I was given good education and upbringing. I call them sometimes. But they are so far away and never come here. My father dedicated his life to the science. And my mother is his true partner. I know they are happy together, they love each other, they love me. I just feel a little alone without them. :-) I'd like to have the same partner in my life as my mother and father are for each other.

I don't have any brother or sister. Just a few relatives in Ukraine that I have never seen. Last 7 years I have been living alone. I know it is the time to create the family. I have had some strong relationships in my life but for some reasons they always failed. I don't think I am too critical and I don't idealize my husband. I just want a good guy in my life to share my success and problems. I know the people are different and it is great. Everyone is unique and can give something to others.

What do I want in my life?... :-) To be happy, have family and careful husband. I want simple things. I am looking for the full life. I'd like to meet the person who can love, respect and understand his mate.
I want the man who can believe in me and help me. Who can support me in creating new life, family and business... I havn't told you yet about my dream... :-)

I want to start my own business one day. I'd like to practise medicine and I think I could work as a private stomatologist, open my own dental room or maybe a clinic. :-) I think everyone should deal with his own business in the life. It is not like to get some job to earn money.
It is the business for life. It must give you satisfaction and income. It must be useful for people and for you. That's why I am coming to the USA. I see America as a country of the great opportunities.

Bill I just don't want to look like a careerist looking for big money. Not at all. I want to live comfortable life and be completely satisfied with my spiritual life. Unfortunately Russia is not the place where everyone can do it. Possibly I am mistaken in something but I have enough energy to overcome it. I'd like to dedicate my life to my husband and my family not to my work...

Well I must close my letter here. Please, let me know what you think about my thoughts.

Hope you havn't tired too much of reading that. :-)

Yours,
Ella.

p.s. I send you a picture of me and my father. It's his 60-years birthday last autumn. I came to Siberia to celebrate it with my parents.

One another is my fitness team. I am in the middle.

Letter 6

Hello Bill.

How are you?
I am fine. Hope you are all right too.

Thank you for your warm letter. I am really interested to learn about you as much as possible. I will have enough free time and try to write you more frequently next week.

Bill last days I have been a little nervous. Why?
Because I am a little afraid of having new serious relationship, particularly, a relationship with you, because I want a relationship with you to work out. I want it to happen, to mature and excel.
Another reason I am nervous is because a serious relationship is a big step. A big step for both of us. And lastly, I am nervous of the possibility that you will say something like "You are a great friend, and I think we should keep things that way". I think I want more. It is based on what you have written me, what you have told me about you, and what you have told me of your thoughts, life and so on.
I think that I really want to develop our relationship. I know it may be premature for me to think this way. But I do because I feel this way.

I tried to analyse all my thoughts and fears and I found their source.
I feel this way because we have met by non-traditional way. We met in the Internet. I have never had such experience before you. The matter is the fact of our communication but not the way. An important point is that we can learn each other and imagine our characters in our minds. I think it's great.

Tomorrow I am coming to Saint-Petersburg. I will have a talk with our regional programm manager. There are still many questions to solve. They must give me my documents and papers for the travel. Also they will tell me about financing my participation.

Our trade union promised to pay my travel. It includes an air ticket, food, transportation and hotel until I settle in a new place. But I am a little nervous, what if they can't pay. There was a precedent when our trade union gave the promises and never held them. I know a good person in our trade union in Saint-Petersburg. His name is Genady, his wife worked with me for some time and we are good friends now. He deals with all finances and salaries for our workers. When I met him last time he said they had been waiting for federal funds and money hadn't came yet. Sometimes it didn't come for half an year. Health care is poorly supported by the state in Russia and our trade union is not well one.
Nevertheless I hope everything will be all right.

I have learnt that another doctor from our region participates in the exchange programm too. And I will meet her tomorrow. Maybe we will work together in the same place. I was also told that about 40 doctors from different places of Russia will come to the USA for the program.
I will tell you details about my trip to Saint-Petersburg next time.

Bill I can't think about anything but my travel to the USA. I am not crazy about making money or carrer. I don't like money for what they are. I am glad about what possibility this travel opens for my future. You are also in my plans... :-) ... at high position.
New country, new work, new people and our meeting, all that makes me excited a lot. I don't want to stay friends. I want more. ;-) I am crazy, we never met. Not at all. I hope everything will work out between us.

You told about having children. To be honest I had the thoughts but I don't want to have a child without his father. My friends with children tell me the same as yours. Children means the world for the parents and it's great.

Thank you for your phone number and address.
I will call you from New York city when I come. Tell me what way I can easily reach you. I don't have a telephone at home so I won't be able to call you until I come.

Well, I have to go now. I will write you again soon.

Yours Ksenia.

p.s. I am sending another picture of me. It's me with my friend's dog
Laima. She is very smart and loving dog. The picture is a little old
but I like it.

Letter 7

Hi, Bill.

I am realy happy we are in touch. Thank you for your letters. They make my days. I think of you constantly. You are very close to me. I don't know how it could happen so fast. It is amazing. I feel you very
close.

You see we both are sincere with each other. I think it is the way people must comunicate with each other. I think we must not hide our feelings and thoughts. I do it. I am ready to give myself to the destiny. I believe in fortune. I think I am lucky to find you.

I know I may seem too excited talking about "us". I just want you to know about my feelings. I like you and I want to develop our relationship. I believe we are compartible and we could be a great couple. Bill I want to know your honest thoughts about us. Would you really like to meet me in person? I want it.

I thought a lot about the situation. We met in virtual space. We found out that we have common thoughts and ideas for living. We both need someone in our lifes. We like each other. And we will meet soon.

What if we won't like each other when we meet? I know it is silly to sit here and think about all these "what and if".

I think we must meet and see if the things will work out between us, see if we will fall in love with each other. Without meeting in person we can't create full understanding of person. I want to meet you and to develop our relationship. I know we met in Internet but we met each other. It means a lot. Well I will be strong and wait until we meet.
:-)

I better tell you about my trip to St.Petersburg.
The first place I visited were our regional program manager. He said my document was almost done. I will get them in few days. I signed several documents and asked him about the place I would come. He said he didn't have the list of the hospitals participating in the program.
It is the prerogative of American side. He also said I would have a preference for selecting a hospital because of my high scores in testing. The greatest news was that I would be able to come to your state for sure. He said many hospitals participate in the program
because it is a government project and they get some benefits from it.

As far as the conditions of working they are the same in all hospitals. My salary will be fixed and guaranteed by American government. Also they will provide the accommodation with every convenience and medical insurance. The manager said that I got a chance giving once in a life. :-) He was sincerely glad and proud for me. He also explained me why the USA gave such chances to foreign citizens. It is the way to select the best professionals in the world.
The manager said I would have big chances to stay in the USA if I worked well.

There was another doctor I told you about. Her name is Ksenia. He introduced us to each other. She is a little older than me and we found common language really fast. Right away we decided to hold together. She is very pleasant and intelligent woman. She is also single and eager to realize her ambitions in the USA. Be ready to meet two girls ;-)

The second I went to our trade union. Genady said there were not funds yet. Actually my travel must be paid by my hospital or trade unon. My hospital refused to do it for lack of funds and trade union is my only source. Anatoly promised to do everything he could. He was going to call to Moscow regarding my travel. As he said he never did it before. Financing is a very difficult question here. It is always hard or impossible to obtain financing for your project or new equipment in state institutions even if you do it for altruistic convictions.

I will go to St.Petersburg tomorrow again. Hope Genady will give me good news.

Bill hope you understand I would need your support at first time when I come. I will come to absolutely different environment with another language, people and culture. You see I am preparing for this travel but I will need you in any case. You are the man I know and I can trust. You will show me the place around, tell me about your traditions and habits. I will need you. Bill to be honest the closer time the more I worry. I am not afraid of new emotions and experience. But I can't do anything to stop it. Do you think it's OK?

I have a small plan for us. I think you must not meet me at airport because there will be a bus for our group and we won't have any time to talk. I will better call you when we get to hotel.

We will figure out details about our meeting over phone. Also I'd like to have a chance to rest. I must look great when we meet ;-)

Bill I am so excited thinking about our meeting and travel. I surely want to embrace you and I will do everything that depends from me to make us met. Please, write sooner what you think.

I need you to uphold my spirit.

With love.
Yours Ksenia. (sounds like Xe-ni-a)

Letter 8

Hello Bill.

I am glad we could talk a little over the phone. I like your voice.
I havn't written you for a while. I am sorry. I know I had to think about you and just write you a short note earlier. I had a problem I must solve before I write you anything. I know you worry for me.
As you see from the subject of my letter things doesn't smile at me. I am sad and confused. I don't want to tell it to you. I know you want to meet me. But I will be unable to come to the US by my own. I need a
sponsor to pay my travel.

Bill I want to describe the situation in detail.
In my last letter I told you I would have a talking with Genady about funding my travel by trade union. I met him and he said that our trade union will not pay my travel. I asked why and how it may be? They carry out this exchange program without funding it? He said it is not right. Our government arranges traveling papers, visas, contract with American government. They also pay salary and provide place for living for american doctors coming to work in Russia. Travel expenses must be covered from local hospital budget or our trade union. My hospital refused to pay travelling and trade union can't pay for it too because Moscow didn't send money. Genady said it is because of the non-
coordination of our government.

I asked him what can I do? He said I can pay my travel by my own or find a sponsor. I must pay only my travel to the USA. When I get there I will be provided everything by american government.

Well, I asked him how much I must pay. When he said the sum I was really confused. It is $950 USD. I knew I didn't have such sum and I even can't borrow it from someone here. Genady was very sorry for me. He said such things happen often. The government conduct some program
and doesn't fund it.

Genady also said the department gave the date of the flight. It's on June 6. So I have some time to find money.

After the talking I went to bank trying to get a loan. But when they leant I was coming to the USA they refused to me. I talked to my friends trying to find money but I knew they didn't have such sum.
This is my salary for 6 months. I tryed to ask for sponsorship in some commercial companies but they don't want to deal with me without any profit.

Genady said I need to find a private sponsor and I thought about you.

Bill I didn't want to ask you for any help. I wanted to do everything by my own. But I don't have any other options. You know my plane is on June 6, 2006.

I must be in Moscow with money by this time. I will fly to the USA if I have money and I won't fly in other cases. I have not enough time to find money here and I want to ask you to be my sponsor.

Bill I understand everything you may think about me. I hate asking people for money and I always try to do everything by my own. But now I really need your financial assistance. I estimated everything. I will reimburse you this sum in one month. I also can pay you extra money back. I will work in California for sure. I don't know where yet but I'll try to be as close as possible. I will learn the hospital in New York city and I'll call you from there. I will earn at least $3500 a month and they will provide housing for me. You see I will be able to
return you the money.

Bill you are the only man I know in the USA. I don't want to mix our relationship and money. But I don't have anyone else to ask for this help. I know if things even will not work out between us we will
remain good friends.

I don't want to lie you and say that I love you. I can't say it to a man I have never met. But you must know that I have the warmest feelings for you and I want to develop them. You know what this travel means for me. It is my only chance to come to America and start new life. It also maybe new life start for you... or for us. I am honest woman and I honestly tell you that I will never hurt you or cheat you.
I will be there for ten months. This is more than enough to make a decision about us.

Bill I have already told you about my plans for future. I want to come to the USA, earn some money to start my own business and find good man to love each other and enjoy our life together. I think I have already found this man... Smile. YOU. When I heard from Genady that my future ruined I was so stressed and confused. I don't want to give it up. I still have my hope. You are the only man who can help me.

Bill, be my sponsor! Help me to overcome it, please.
I will wait for your answer with all my hope.

Yours truly.
Ksenia

p.s. You can see my passport. I scaned it for our department and decided to send you a copy. I like the picture in it. :-)

Letter 9

Hi Bill.

I received your letter and it gave me good hope. Thank you very much.
I am so happy. You are saving my future. :-) I knew you are the man I can rely on. I appreciate your willing to help highly. I will pay
money back to you in any case. This is my wish.

I understand you want me to present you more proof but I don't know how I can do it. You see I deal with Genady in our trade union and our program manager only. I also tried to learn some contact in the USA for the program but I can't do it. Genady said it's the government program and they don't have any public information because of safety regulations. All information interchange goes through our department and ministry for foreign affairs. I submited my application through our trade union and I was taken because I met all their requirements.
I have got my visa and passport only, other documents are in Moscow. I will get them when I come there before my flight.

In Russia doctors don't have any official doctors ID. We have only diploma from the university in Russian language. My diploma is in Moscow now, it is being translated into English and notarized.
Russian doctors can get an international certificate or ID if they worked somewhere abroad. I havn't done it yet.

Genady said you can try to learn some information in Ministry of Health in Moscow. To be honest I don't think they'll tell too much about it over the phone because of the anti-terrorist program. Since first terrorist attacks all departments kept the information closed and confidential. I even can't learn my flight information, I know only the date of departure. They'll tell everything at common meeting in Moscow before the flight. I am sorry.

I can give you the telephone of my trade union but noone speak English there. Try to call to Ministry of Health in Russia. They can give you the information. These are their telephones +7(095)927-27-65, 927-28-86, 927-25-20.

I am really tired of all these stuff. I am sorry.
I'd like to be with you now so you don't ask me to prove you anything. I am honest and I am real woman with my feeling and emotions.

I consulted with Genady about how you can get the money to me. He said we have a little time and we must do it fast. He advised me to use western union. You must hear about it? He said they have many agents everywhere in the world. They must have their web site also.

I will receive your money at Petro-Aero-Bank in Saint Petersburg.
They have a western union agent. There is the address of the bank:
PETRO-AERO-BANK
LOMONOSOVA 1
SAINT PETERSBURG,
RUSSIA 191011

Put my name in order as Ksenia Galkina and let me know the control number and your name and address as it appears in order.
Genady said this is sensitive information and I must know it exactly.
Write me this information after you send money and I will receive the transfer and pay for my travel.

Bill they really made me so busy with this travel. I have already passed all my papers to new doctor. He is a man and he tryed to flirt with me. :-) Don't worry, he is not to my taste. I said him I am leaving to the USA to meet my man. :-) It was worth seeing how much he was surprised.

When I was in St.Petersburg for the last time our program manager said we would come to Moscow two days before the flight. All doctors will come there. We will get hard training with the best professionals in Russia. Bill I will communicate with the people I saw on TV and read in the periodical. I can't believe it. They are well-known doctors and I am just a doctor from province. It is really stirring event for me. :-)

Bill I am really happy that is happening with me. I feel myself so lucky to find you. And I am very grateful to you for your help. I like you Bill and I am sure we will like each other when we meet. I know there are some things like phisical attraction and so on. But I already have strong excitement thinking of you and I feel an attraction to you.

Kiss you.

Yours always,
Ksenia Galkina.

Letter 10

Hello Bill

I haven't heard from for a while.
Where are you?

Please reply sooner.
I am still coming and interested in you.

Yours Ella

Letter 11

Hi Bill.

I have the greatest news for you. My travel is paid and I am coming to the USA! My Polina helped me again. :-) She is really the best person in my life and I am so grateful to her. When she knew about my problem she was so sad. She acted like a mother with her child. I understand her, it was her idea and she just couldn't allow it to fail. She was able to get a loan and paid for my participation. :-) I have to pay her in two months. I am so happy everything worked out.

I will leave so soon. I haven't noticed how fast time went.
Next days I'll spend at studies. We will have some days training in St. Petersburg before I'll come to Msocow. We'll have 4 lectures in one day. The first thing will be English language. The full professor from the University will teach us to speak English. It will be some kind of consultation about using medical terminology in English. They want us to talk correctly with our colleagues in the USA. Also we'll have lectures about the psychology of relations and intercourse. We must be tactful professionally. And two lectures about new methods in medicine using in the USA. It will be most difficult part of the studies. America are ahead of Russia in medical equipment and methods.
I think I'll stay there for a few days. I'll be able to send emails from
there.

Bill all that is so interesting and new for me. And I am glad I have a chance to experience it. There will be a lot of information and I will probably be very busy with the studing.

Bill I can't wait my traveling. I know these days will go fast. I always think about it. By the way I have a gift for you. I won't tell you what it is because I want to surprise you. :-) I want to give it
to you at our first meeting. You will like it for sure.

That is all for now. I am sorry my letter is short. I must arrange a few things here.

With Love.

Letter 12

Hi my dear.

I am really glad you are in my life. :-) Bill I know this letter make you a little sad. Don't be nervous.
I am coming to the USA but they made it more problematical. I will explain now.

I am back from Moscow now. Our programm coordinator convened general meeting. He made long speech about problems they have with American
government.

I will try to tell you everything I was able to understand. As always the problem is money. He said that everyone of us must have at least $500 in cash for customs agents. The coordinator said they were unable to arrange this with American side. American customs requires that every foreigner coming to the USA has minimal sum of money. I must have money declaration and this money in cash. It is required to prove that I have the money for food, transport and expenses when I come to the USA.

I know it seems so silly but the problem is that we are coming there without contracts with our employers. We will contract when we come to New York. The problem also is that we will get our first salary after two weeks of work and they must be sure we will be able to buy food and pay other expenses until that time. American government don't do any exclusions for us and they require money declaration from us.

Our coordinator was very sorry. He said last year employers'
representatives from America came to Moscow and contracted here. But this year they want to do it in New York to avoid additional expenses.

Well now you know everything. We have a few days to declare the money. I don't know what to say else Bill. I must fly by any means. They changed the date and gave us additional time to find the money. Our plane is reserved for June 10 and they won't return money I have already payed.

Can you send me this sum, Bill? I will not spend a penny from this sum and I will return it to you as soon as we meet. They said they will not let anyone to get on the plane without this declaration and money. They don't want to have any juridical problems and hearing in the USA. Bill I must have this sum before my flight.

I can't get any money here. Polina did everything she could.
Please help me somehow. I will reimbuse everything to you. I give you my word! Send money through western union to any agent in Saint Petersburg as soon as possible. Bill I must fly by any means and
I will do everything to be there.

My days here are so busy and I didn't have even a free minute. We have great lectures again. It was such huge experience for me to communicate with these people. They made us really proud to present Russia in the USA. I have just realized what great responsibility lies with us.
American doctors would appreciate Russian medicine by our work.

I am not afraid to have this responsibility. I consider myself very responsible person and I am very happy to do it. And I must say thank you to you again for this chance.

Bill I may seems too proud with saying all this. Don't think so. I just was very impressed by all this. I never become presumptuous. I always remember who I am and where I came from. And I would always remember who helps me with it. :-)... And I am still a single coming
to our first date.

Love you.

Ksenia

Letter 13

My dear Bill.

Thank you for your hard effort to help me with my travel. I will never forget it. And I am happy to have such careful and supportive man as you are.

Bill, I am really busy here with great lectures they give us and I don't want to miss anything. Sorry I can't write you much now. I just want to be completely ready for my work in the USA. I know we will have great future together. :-) We are good team. I have been always dreaming about having such good relationship with the man. And I am glad I found you.

Everything is going on as we planed. Send money and let me know the information right away. I will be checking my email more often until I get your letter.

I will also call you from New York as soon as I get to my room. I'll get the list of hospitals in your area and we'll choose one for me.

I am closing the letter. Will write you tomorrow again.

Miss you.
Ella
