Our dearest American friends!
We’d like to thank your professors, Gerry and Olga, and you, those 13 people, who had found time and desire, for coming to our country! Russia is a big country and we tried our best to show you as much as possible. While you were in our country we visited not only historical and cultural places of interest, but also tried to show you our modern life, the one that we live right now, although even those 3 weeks are not enough to explore everything, believe us! But still we hope that now you know more about not only Russia, but also about Russians and Russian lifestyle. As for us, thanks to you, we found out that Americans are an absolutely amazing nation! You are extremely friendly, open, funny and easy-going people! Now we know that it’s a real pleasure not only to work with you, but also to have fun and just hang out with you, because all of you are gregarious and outgoing! Now, thanks to our meeting, we know a lot more about American traditions, culture and lifestyle. We hope that you like our country and our people even more than you did before, because we do like you and the US! Someday we’ll definitely come to you and we believe that you’ll show us your country. Also we’d like to hope that after this time in Moscow, Russia, some of you will come to us again, because we’ll be waiting with our hearts full. You all filled our life with your light and optimism, so stay as you are! Thank you once again!
Forever yours, Russian students
