letter from Olga! =)

Not to long ago, I posted a message re: meeting women of the former soviet
union through romance ads.

 In August, Olga will travel to Moscow from her home in Kiev, Ukraine. In
 Moscow, Olga will have a much easier and cost efficient means to place your
 personal romance ad throughout Russia.

Last week I received the following from Olga:

 "I have already sent your ad to the papers in such towns: Moscow, St.
 Petersburg, Vladimir, Kazan. At nearest future I will send your ad to the
 paper in some more 12 towns of Russia, where papers are published. Some
 times (in winter, spring & now) I placed your ad in other papers, but they
 are not most popular paper in Moscow and some large cities of Russia.
 Besides, I am continuing to place your ad in papers of Ukraine. I promise
 to place your ad in some other papers when I will come to Moscow in August.
 I am glad that you have received fairly many letters from Russian &
 Ukrainian girls and I think you will received some more ones and will find
 your ideal in my country soon. I thank you very much ones more for your
 kindness & your help. My best wishes,


 This isn't a scam - call it panhandling if you want. . . I sent her $40 or
 $50 and I've received over 45 responses. Unlike placing romance ads in the
 U.S., women from the former USSR respond. Although one would guess the are
 doing so in the hopes of American citizenship, I haven't found it so.

 Olga lives in Kiev, Ukraine (population 3 million) and will travel to
 Moscow in August to visit her father. If you were to send a letter this
 week, she would receive it in time. The population of Moscow is 10 million
 -- (3 times the size of Los Angeles.)

 Feel free to send a letter and ask her your questions. She will be happy
 to respond.

Olga’s address:

Ukraine Kiev 253121 Dekabristov Street 5 - 178 Olga Kozmina

 I am posting anonymously because of the flames and volume of inquiries that
 would result otherwise. I think those who are truely interested will take
 the time to write.

To: probable flamer Subject: polite note

 Although Olga has never seen a newsgroup nor heard of "net-etiquette," she
 believes that offering lonely singles the possibility of romance exceeds
 the cost of angering those who feel the net shouldn't be used in this
 fashion. IHA (I humbly ask) that you not flame the postmaster of this site.

peace. . .
