Dear Alexander,

I wanted to write to let you know how much I appreciated all the work and effort you put into our trip to Russia to make it a memorable one. Knowing that you were taking care of things made me more confortable when I was there (and my parents a little less worried than they otherwise would have been.) Please extend my thanks also to Dennis Dima, and the others who helped us as well; I'm thankful or all their effort. I believe the program you have established is a wonderful one - I learned a lot about Russia and about people in general from opposite sides of the world. For this, I thank you again for providing the opportunity. Thank you again!

Best wishes to you and your family,
Robyn Manchester

From Renee Russo

I wanted to write a quick note to tell you we made it home alive. We got to Chicago without any problems, my family and I made sure everyone had a way home and I think Eva, Brennan, and Eric made it back to their home cities befor the day was finished!

It is nice to be back in Chicago - I am at my Aunt's house, so you do not recognize the address. If you would like to get a hold of me through email, my address at home is - I know I left it somewhere, but just in case.....

I want to send a letter to my friend who lives in the dorm, but I only know the address to GRINT, so I am asking when this letter arrives, addressed to someone you do not know, please give it to one of the english teachers to bring to the dorm. I hope this is not a problem, or send me a better address and to mail it to. Thank you for your help!

If you would still like for me to write some sort of reaction/suggestion paper for you, just let me know. I do not care that it will be connected with my name, I am a big girl and stand behind my opinions.

Take care and I hope to hear from you soon!
