I hope your day is going well for you. And, I hope it's not as cold there now, as it was before. Hopefully, spring will come soon for both of us.
I'm writing to you to thank you for sending me all of those beautiful photos of your churches and other beautiful buildings there. It was very kind of you and I am very grateful to you.
I hope someday to visit Ryazan and I hope to meet you, your family and some of your friends, when I visit.
Thank you for being so nice to me. I'm very happy that we have met on the internet and I hope we'll keep in touch for a very long time and perhaps you could visit me one day.
I would love to hear from you whenever you have time to write.
