Hi R!
I am very glad to receive from you the answer. And first that I want to
tell it a thank. It is very pleasant to me to see your letter because it
means that in this huge world someone thinks of me. I ask forgive me if
my letter will seem to you strange or inconsistent. Simply for me it
difficultly what to begin acquaintance itself. I the modest and shy girl
and consequently I worry slightly. But I hope that if will pass any time
and we can get acquainted closer, and we can find out each other better.

I begin to write to you and probably in this letter it is necessary to
tell something about me. Yes certainly I should send one of the photos.
At first I shall tell when I was born also age. I was to be born on On
December 21, 1975. 
It means that soon to me to be executed 28 years, probably it already
large age. In family I was the unique child and I do not have brothers
of the sisters. And now I live together with the parents in a small
apartment. I think that at this time it is time to reflect on the future
life. I very much would like to have own family and I very much want to
bring up own children. I very much love children and I very much would
like to bring up children, I do not know how many I want children 
Because it should depend not only on me, but also from mine male because
he is the chapter of family and he too owes 
To think concerning children.
I have grown and was born in Mari-El. 
It approximately 850 kilometers from Moscow.
It the small city near Volga river.
My father works in militia. At you it refers to as police.
My mum works as a saleswoman in shop which to be not far from houses.
She sells bread. Probably I shall tell to you about my parents more, but
in the other letter. Now I would like more to tell about myself that you
it would be possible to represent me. I already spoke that I was born
1975. And as well as majority of children I went in a children's garden
till 7 years. I now understand that my parents could not constantly sit
with me and they had me to give back in a children's garden. But I
remember that when I was small to me the children's garden did not like,
because I very much wanted to be with the parents. After that I have
gone to school. I do not know why, but I could study well without effort
in that time when other children had problems with study. I have
finished school with the Red diploma in 1993. On it my formation was not
finished also I has gone to study in Institute, I have arrived there
without problems because I had red diploma after leaving school. It
spoke about that that I very well studied, it has helped me to study
free-of-charge in Institute. I have finished Pedagogical institute in
1998 and after that I did not study more. At me always it turned out not
only to study, but also it is good to explain and I could itself teach
children. After I have finished institute, I began to work at school.
And from that time I work as the teacher of small children. I teach just
children, who have come from a children's garden. I teach by him all
sciences. I teach them to read and to write. I very much love children
and me very much to like that that I make. The work with children
requires attention and I think that with children to work little bit
more difficultly than with the adults. As I already have told my work
very much me to like, it is perfect to help children. In my age to
become clearly that children this our future and I try to learn to their
volume that I be able itself and even hardly more. The love to children
has come to me with my age and now I want to get children. I dream to
have perfect family in which family center always warm. Probably you
will ask me why I have written to you? But I do not know, And why you
search someone? 
I am like you I want to find the happiness. 
I already spoke that I the shy girl and consequently I do not know as me
to explain to you that what I speak with you, And why would be not
present? It is difficult to me to get acquainted with the people in the
street and I could not find to myself male here on my native land for
the sake of which I is ready on all. My girlfriend at work has advised
me to try to get acquainted in the Internet. I should write the letters
from the Internet of cafe because I do not have computer of a house. 
It dearly enough what to put the computer home. In our country not so
many people have computers of a house. Therefore I hope that it normally
that that I write from the Internet of cafe. Standard of living in
Russia not such high as in other countries probably is simple. Only I
ask you understand me correctly I would not want that you thought that I
complain. I would earn enough money what to live here. 
I think that on it my letter has approached to the end and I hope that
this very large letter what will distract you. Now you can read it and
if you agree with that that I have written, we can continue to get
acquainted further. Whether I hope I can set to you a question " you
agree to have the serious relations with the Russian girl? Whether " you
Agree to continue the relation with her. I in any case wish to you only
goods and I hope to see your letter next time. Sincerely yours new
friend Maria.

For me was by a pleasant surprise to see your letter.
Therefore I want to tell you a thank.
You have a lot of work?
I can to you than help?
When I searched for someone on the Internet, I have sent the message to
four men, 
but has received back only from you and I am very glad to this. I am
glad because your structure has liked me most of all, 
I waited back only from you and consequently you probably can not even
present as I is glad. The Internet of cafe to be not close to my house.
But this distance not a problem for me because I am ready to pass many
difficulties to speak with you again. I would like to spend in cafe more
time speaking with you, but it happens difficultly for me because of my
I very much want to learn more from you and me also it would be
desirable to tell as much more about itself. I hope that my last letter
was not too large. And you were frightened by it. I am simple not
worried also much to me it would be desirable to speak very much. Allow
me to tell about the family. My father was born in Mari-El And now to
him 61 years. My father the militarian, but now he on pension. he
strongly got tired of the work and I saw it. And when I was small we
went to have a rest on a nature, and it very much was pleasant to me. My
mum was born in Kirov in 1949 and her now 55 years. My parents have met
in Kirov, it happened after my daddy have sent there to work. The
militarians frequently send in other cities, and then they have returned
to Mari-el already together. Here they also have remained to live. After
wedding I have appeared. I grew without the sisters and without the
I do not know why I was one in family, but probably to my parents it was
not simple, because of work of the father. I hope that my parents have
liked you. Certainly I very much love mine the parents. And I think that
me very much was lucky with the parents, but I became adult and I need
to think of the family. How to you mine the English language? I hope
that that what I speak you can understand and read without problems? The
study of my language began at school. I very much liked this language
and I always wanted to learn to speak on English easily and freely.
After school I have continued to study the English language on special
I read many textbooks and was engaged with the teachers.
I spoke that I liked to study and I studied this subject with pleasure.
I probably make mistakes? But I hope that them not much. Simply practice
is necessary for me and I think that I can speak normally. I shall be
honour and I shall tell that I sometimes use by the interpreter, I hope
what you it not strongly disturbs? Me was lucky because when I studied
education was free-of-charge and I could much study. 
Now all very dearly and now I can not be engaged with the teachers. But
I think that to me enough that knowledge that I have received. My growth
5 ' 6, my growth 130 ids, I watch the figure and I shall do it always,
because I love always to be in the form. I very much love to look films
about happy love and I dream of that that it at me sometime will be.
This my dream from childhood as well as at many girls. In the past I
have met which man strongly has grown fond. But I was silly. he has
deceived me and me was very sick. But not looking on it I continue to
trust in love. It is one more reason on which I write you. I want will
meet the man which is worthy by my clean and sincere love. Which will
never deceive me. I always trusted in such light feelings as love,
friendship, fidelity, fidelity, kindness. I could not meet such man in
Russia. I am to be trusted that you which that man I searched! I hope
what not strongly has tired you with the story about itself. I shall be
glad to answer your any questions but I not always I can understand a
question. Therefore I ask to not be run if I can not answer your
question. I am very glad that we can to continue our acquaintance
further. I ask write to me more about itself. I shall be very glad more
to learn you. For me it is very important. In hope that our relations
can go above. To my friend R! With impatience Maria!

II think, that you can send me the letter in a regular mail.
lf you also will give me your home address, I also can send you the letter.
BUT I think, it is not so convenient for us. Each letter will go very long time.
We have a problem in the regular mail not always the letter achieves the addressee. Probably our mail works very badly.
I also would like to speak with you, but at present I have found out that it is impossible.
l very much would like to hear your voice. And I think that you also would like to hear my voice. But I regret it is impossible.

I cann't give you house phone number because I have no phone of my house.
i want to speak with you, it would be amusing to hear your voice.
But my familiar too have no phone.
There I work there is a phone, but he is used for emergency calls.
Therefore on this phone it is impossible to call.

It is very expensive. Our city haven't such phones also.
They are only at rich people.
I have found out that such phones are in moscow and it saint petersburg.
They are at the international airports. And telephone conversation is costs very expensive.
Therefore i can't call to you. it is a pity to me.
But i am happy that we have an opportunity to contact you with the help of the internet.
I think that internet - great achievement of a science. It allows to speak with people, taking place on
the big distances.
And I am very pleased that we could meet each other help of the internet.
Oh, i nearly have not overlooked, I have informed my parents about you.
That we have acquaintance.
I have told my parents a little about you, in the beginning, they have considered cautiously to ours to attitudes on internet.

But subsequently, mum sends the regards to you.
She hopes that in future we can shall be magnificent pair.
If it is true, I too think so, but we know each other absolutely short period of time. And i think, that early so speak about it.

I simply haven't anybody except for you, whom i can inform this words only you.
And i really hope for continuation of our attitudes, i think that you not against.

Hello my best friend R!
I too want to speak with you, 
Giving I was better itself I shall try to cause you, you should inform
the phone number on which I can always find you, number of mobile phone
is better. Well? I am glad to see your letter. I am understand that
between us fine attitudes are fastened. And I become sure, that sometime
there will come day when we can tell each other: " I love you ". Or may
be probably I am mistaken. Today before writing to you the letter, I
spoke with the manager of internet cafe. He has told that Internet have
a lot of deceit therefore I should be cautious. But when I read your
letters, I understand that I should not be afraid of a deceit. He also
spoke that many girls play in false love to entice money or with the
help of this false love to left in America. My god why in this world
there is not enough validity? But you can trust me. I do not deceive
you. Though probably you will not trust me. But I haven't idea to
deceive you.
I already spoke you that I use the Internet only with one
purpose. I want to find my half because I can not find worthy male here.
I know what such a deceit and his consequences. In one time one male has
deceived me and I had feeling that my private world is devastated. And I
in this occasion have huge grief. 
Well, I shall forget this bad theme for conversation today.
I shall write a little about my daily routine. 
Per working days I rise early from bed.
I rise at 6.00 mornings.
It would be wonderful, if I could wake up near to you and speak you "
good morning ". But it_ only dreams. Then I go in a bath where I wash
and I clean a teeth. Then I do small gymnastics that my muscles came in
the older. Further I prepare for breakfast. In the morning I do not like
to fill in my stomach. I eat a little. I make sandwiches with sausage,
cheese and cooked eggs And then I drink tea with a lemon. It is my
breakfast. AT 7.15 I go for work. I go for work on bus, as I have not
the own car. For 45 minutes I need go to my work. Near to with my house
a stop. I go to bus stops and sit down on a bus number 16. Then I change
to the bus number 23 which carries me directly to work. 
My work begins approximately at 8:00. I and my colleagues we go everyone
in the study, where we are waited by children. And I begin a lesson
from, whether that I check all children on a place. I teach children who
just has come in school and me to have to teach them to all sciences at
once. I teach children to write, to read and to consider. Certainly
there are still subjects which I teach. But that that I have told is
main. Now the beginning of new academic year, autumn also came new
children, but still there are problems with children who did not want to
study earlier and I should train them much. But there are such who does
not want to study and me to have to translate them in classes where
subjects conduct the men. I the woman and me am difficult to swear, I do
not love to shout and to argue. And consequently I happen sometimes
difficultly to raise a vote even on the child. But certainly if the
child it deserves I accept serious measures. I consider that in such age
the main this education and it is necessary to bring up the boy with
character the man, and the girl would need to be brought up so in the
future she could make the house cosy, and heart the man hot. I think
that in education of the boy more father should be engaged, because he
is the chapter of family and the son him should grow by the defence
counsel. I have a break from 12:00 till 13:30. I usually fill him to
write to you the letter. I also write you this letter in a lunch break.
My work conies to an end in 17.00 evenings. If I can not write to you
during dinner then I write you in the evening after work. And I go home.
At home, I am usually occupied with domestic affairs. It is washing of
clothes, cleaning of rooms from a dust. And another. At leisure, I watch
TV more. In days off, I also am in the basic house. I do not like with
recent time to go on various dances or a bar. Sometimes I go to my
girlfriend Anna. We can speak with her on any themes of conversation.
Usually we discuss female themes. We speak about recipes, lady's wear
and much the others. But I think that to you it not interestingly. 
I hope that I have not bothered you with the letter.
With love Maria.

Hello my love Ry !!!
I am happy to receive your letter.
Today in the morning as I spoke, I went to visa agency.
I asked about moving to your country and I got the answer that I need
the visa, foreign passport and some other documents for registration. We
have defined a type of the visa and it's type which allows to marry in
the future That visa is tourist. I think, that it will be enough to know
each otner and in a consequence to marry. 
If we marry during validity of the visa, I can remain with you on more
If we do not marry, I should leave your country on the termination of
validity of the Visa. I asked about prices and was very surprised, first
I ask about time of performance. and they said that there is many people
who wants to make documents and leave the country Therefore, if I wish
to fly in the country earlier, I should write the application and pay
the visa on next week. Then the visa will be ready during 2 weeks. If
I can not write the application and pay the visa on next week, that I
should wait manufacture of the visa during 2-3 months. I was very much
surprised with the prices of services. The visa costs approximately 270
dollars, and the passport and necessary documents cost 79 dollars. It's
make me little suppressed and disappointed. I don't have so much now. 
I was make application but I must pay for it.
I asked my mother about our savings she said that the money should not
be a barrier 
between two people which love each other.
I counted my sum and I found out that I have only about fifty dollars
and my wages. 
will be not soon.
I asked my friends about helping me and they said that have not at the
present moment. I asked the advice my mother and she said that maybe you
can help me, because you love me. I asked her how he can help me,
because he is far from me. My mother said that you can send the money
through company which make this service. I asked about it, on my work
and I know now, that exists reliable and fast company, which makes
remittances in world and it's western union. I remember that I saw
advertising this company on tv. I take a directory book and found the
address of it and it's not far from me. I went there, and I asked them
about service. They said that sender must go to the western union, give
them information: the name 
and last name of receiver, country they make transfer and bring the ten
digits secret code to sender. The receiver must know ten digits for
receiving money. They say that the branches of it must be everywhere
worldwide. Here is the information about me:

Country: Russia
Name: Maria 
Surname: Haritonova

I must know your full name, full address.
You must know that I decide to ask you about it because I love you and
trust you very much. I decide to come to you because I feel this way and
you are very necessary to me, 
decided to come to the unfamiliar country and I never be outside my
country. But I decided to do it because now you are part of my life and
I trust you in all. I think you trust me too and love me too. You must
inform me the closest airport to you I'll ask the help with ticket from
my relatives.
Please, don't forget to tell me the closest airport. 
My love I need 300 dollars I think you will help me because we found our
love and we want to meet closer. You must inform me ten digits and I can
receive it. You must know we must hurry because I can receive the
documents soon, and if we lost the time it is necessary for a long time.
Now it's very difficultly to receive the visa to your country, and it's
fact, but if I pay now, I think I do it. I think about sense of money,
and I'm very sad if this paper can prevent people to meet each other. In
most cases the money play a main role in life but it's not right! I'm
sure. And the quantity of money was and will not important to me, I
always not aspired to material enrichment and don't search specially for
rich male. 
I appreciate human qualities and relations, and I love you Ry!!! I
love you all my heart, I want to be with you now. I want to be with you
If it's mutually we will be very happy in our life. 
I think you love me too and we will meet very soon.
You are my love, my Angel. My heart is yours.
Probably, you will not trust me after that the letter. 
Probably, you will decide that I am a deceiver.
But I can repeat to you, all my words, all my ideas, all my feelings to
you is a 
And as though the destiny has not turned to us, as though you have not
decided, I shall love all the same you. And I shall prove to you, that
it is not simple words. I'm waiting good news from toy, I hope
everything will be all right and we will be togethr soon. Every day I
think about our meeting, and I think it's real, we must use this chance
of destiny. I LOVE YOU!!!!!!

Hi my dear Ric!!!!!!!!!
I was very glad to your letter. I am very grateful to you that you want to help me with capture of criminals, but I assure you, that the Ministry of Internal Affairs here in Russia uses the best efforts to catch them.
To me have returned all documents and I once again speak you that were gone only money which you have sent me last time. For criminals were necessary only money.
I think that even if you use the communications it will help only with that to catch criminals, but it will not return that money which they have stolen.
Only do not understand me incorrectly I too very much I want that them have caught, but I have solved now that that business of militia and I hope that they will perform the work honesty.
I think that to us is necessary to think of that where we can find money again. Because my visa is still valid and at the airport already for a long time wait for my bell on the account of flight up to Seattle.
I wait for your letter my lovely.

Yours Maria.
