Dear friends, sending you greetings with my card./ I arrived here yesterday, I am working, but I am fed up, it is not enjoyable here./ And so I want to finish the city life this week./ Do you plan to travel and I will journey as well./So please write, how are you all doing/ Do you think we will look for a new place together, then I will come or should I go alone, it’s not bad, maybe will be better./ These are just my thoughts. Please reply as soon as you are able to. I will wait for your reply.
