Dear Carol,
Thank you for your letter. I hope your exams are over now and you can start relaxing!
I’ve just passed my school-leaving exams and I’m getting ready for the entrance exams for the University. I’m already making plans for the holidays. They’re exciting! I’m going to hitchhike across England for three weeks. I can’t wait!
That’s why I’d like to ask if I could come to visit you for some time. I would be so terribly grateful if you could let me to stay for a week. Please let me know if it’s OK with you.
I do hope I’ll be able to see you at my place in Russia some day, too!
Give my love to Tom.
All the best,
Marina
