Dear my host parents, Tom and Dianne
This is Tezukayama High school student, Yuri Kikuchi. I thank you very much for your kindness while I was there. Now school is out for winter vacation. So I am home and relaxing. I am sending you some pictures.
I wish you a very happy new year!
This is Anri Kawaguchi. Do you remember me?
I am a Japanese student who stayed at your house in October. I am sorry to send an e-mail late, for I took a regular exam until yesterday. You gave wonderful memories to my visit to Australia. When I returned home, I tell my parents all my experience in my visit. For example, about my hat that had fallen into the valley! But I am all right because it’s in winter here. I’ll be pleased if you send an answer to me. And I would like to send photos to you, so would you tell me your home address? I am waiting for your answer.
