My dear Mary!
Last summer my husband Danny and I travelled abroad. We went to Spain. We had wonderful holidays. The weather was wonderful. It was hot and sunny.
I went to the beach, swam in the sea and sunbathed all morning. I relaxed near the swimming pool in the afternoon. I met some nice people at the hotel. We ate at the restaurant and went dancing in the evening. We had a lot of fun at beach parties and discos. Sometimes we went shopping. It was so exciting. I bought a lot of good things, but I didn’t tell Danny about it. And Danny didn’t ask any questions. He is such a dear husband. I had a really great time.
Danny relaxed at the bar all the time. He didn’t swim in the sea. He didn’t go shopping or dancing. He didn’t eat. He drank bear. We didn’t say a word to each other, as we didn’t see each other much. He says he had fantastic holidays too.
But why did we spend so much money?

Nadia, 17. We go to Ireland every summer, because my mum Irish and we always go and visit her family. It's good in see all my cousins and everyone. Two years ago I went to Egypt and met my family in Cairo — my dad's Egyptian. Then my cousins and I went to the Red Sea, which I thought was beautiful. We did a lot of water sports. We went jet-skiing, snorkelling, and we went on a banana boat and things like that. It was really good fun.
My ideal holiday would be to go to Brazil, to Rio de Janeiro. Latin American culture is interesting.
Terry, 17. Last month I went on a college trip, to France, Which was a lot of fun. We weren't treated like kids; the lecturers gave you freedom — you were allowed to do whatever you wanted.
In the summer I usually stay in London arid go out with my friends. But three years ago I went to Hong Kong. It's an amazing place. It's a beautiful city and it's really full of life: there's never a time when you have to go to sleep.
My dream holiday would be to go with my friends to Hawaii or somewhere like that.

I have a pen friend in America. His name is Mike Thompson. We write letters and communicate in the Internet.
He is an ordinary American boy. He lives in Florida with his parents. In July, I invited him to visit Russia. He did not want to go to a big city and I offered him to go camping. He was very happy, because he liked camping very much.
We went camping early in the morning when he found a nice place. We put up a tent and made a campfire. We cooked our food on it; we ate burnt potatoes, sausages and vegetables. Mike didn’t know Russian and we spoke English. We picked up berries, mushroom, swam in the river, and went fishing. In the evening we gathered at the campfire and sang a song. «Фестивальная». It is the best known song of all tourists in Russia.
Do you lire camping?
Why or why not?
In the Village
I’d like to tell you about my last summer holidays. First, we went to the country. There is nothing like our village. Our family has got a small country house there. Our grandparents live in the village. There is a large river there. We often went boating, swimming in the river. The weather was always fine and we liked to be outdoors. We went for long walks to the forest, picked flowers, gathered berries and mushrooms. We made jam and salads. We watered plants in the garden, fed domestic animals and birds and helped our grandmother about the house.
My grandfather was a partisan and in the evenings he told me about his young years and we sang partisans songs. He told me the famous song “Katyusha” was the hymn of Italian partisans.
I met many new friends there. We went to the local library and when the weather was bad we read many interesting books about Russian history, symbols, tsars. Now we know “Matreshka” is the national Russian toy. Many villages in Russia are famous for their specific crafts: painted boxes in Palekh, wooden tableware in Khokhloma and toys in Dymkovo.
What is the national Russian toy?
What song was the hymn of Italian partisans during the world war the second.
