I think I can prove you that age is not a handicap. Ask your quastions and I will answer them with pleasure. Today I have got wonderful mood and I want to tell you about our holidays. From this the expression "holy water" appeared because Jesus was baptised by water from river. It is considered that if you bath in this water you will never fall ill and you will wash off all your sins.
When she was young she corresponded with a young man too. But in spite of it they corresponded for three years. My aunt even told me on a secret that she had fallen in love with him.
The doctors said that if the father was alive she would live longer. I recalled that I didn't tell you Peter about my education. That's why in 1994 I entered Surgut State University.
I like skating very much though I can't skate as a figure-skater. On this I am finishing my letter, because it is late already and I have to go home. And then I would like to learn more about you Peter. As I promised you last letter I will continue to tell you about myself. But it is difficult to find a job in our town if you haven't got a higher education.
My working day has finished and I continue to tell you about myself. I can give you my address but I am afraid that you will send me presents for my birthday. And then I like to dream very much and I alwais dream and hope for something better. It is good because when you dream and aspire to something it is becoming to live more interesting.
On 31 of December at 10-pm we begin to see off old year.
I could do it because of not knowing your traditions and rules. It is very funny to watch these people especially who tries for the first time. Only it is considered to be a family holiday and I unfortunately haven't got any brothers or sisters.
If I have offended you Peter anything in my letter, please, forgive me. Next letter I will write you how I spent New Year and Cristmas. Some days ago we like all people in Russia celebrated orthodox holiday Epiphany. That's why we have got such a tradition - on this day people make a large there and the most courageous take off their clothes on the snow and jump into the icy water. And not only "sea cows" but common people from young to old bath there too. Write me I am waiting for your letter with impatience.
Well, as for the rest, I will let her letters speak for themselves.
I live in my one-room flat, which it is left after my parent's death. He called it pilaw for Vaska, because nobody cooked pilaw with cranberry yet. After the father's death my mother weakened very much, the father's death became a great breakdown for her.
