Mike lives in Moscow. His girl-friend Lucy studies French
in Paris. Shehas been there for five weeks. Mike has been staying in Moscow for
about a year. He wants to visit Lucy in Paris and he has written a
letter to her. She has just received this letter from him.
sorry I have not written to you for two weeks, but I have had a lot of
homework to do. I will have my exams in a month and Russian is very
difficult. I am very glad that I will go and see you in Paris this
summer. I hope you will show me something of Paris. When you see me you will not recognize me. I have become so thin! Food is
very expensive here, and I have only one meal a day. But I have
made many friends in Moscow and sometimes they invite me to coffee
or tea. By the way, I am having a cup of coffee now and I am thinking
about you, dear Lucy. I hope to hear from you soon.
