"...We are in California now. All of our friends met us in the airport.
After that there was a long way to the host families houses through San
Francisco, Golden Gate and many little towns by cars.
We are very glad and proud, that there are many people, who helped us to
do this long trip to America. We have done it!
The program of staying here is very interesting. The first two days we
will be staying in host families and after that - 4 days in
archaeological camp together with the host families. After that we will
have the cultural program.
Natasha and Svetlana are staying at Linda Hudson's family, Zhenya and
Larissa - at Robin Joy's family. Tanya is staying with Elaine's family.
We spended the whole day and night without sleeping. Now there is
evening there and we will sleep a lot.
Sarah, Jeremy and Samantha met me at the airport. Now we are staying at
one beautiful house near Fort Ross. I'm very glad, that Fort Ross is
very closed from our place. There is computer (Apple)
:-) and I'm writing this first message to you from America.
A big hello to Everyone.
Elena and folks".
