Dear Jonny,
Hello! How are you? I received your letter today. I am very excited to hear that you are coming to stay with me for the holidays.
I am sure we will have a lot of fun together.
My parents have agreed to let you stay with me. They offered to pick you up at the airport. All you have to do is to tell us when you
are coming.
I will now tell you about some of the things you will experience here in Indonesia. You do not have to worry about the local
spicy food. We have a lot of fast food restaurants here like the ones you have in England.
You can also shop for souvenirs to bring home. Sarinah or Blok M are our famous shopping areas. They have many shops
selling all kinds of things. I am sure you will love them.
I am also planning to take you to a few tourist spots like miniature of Indonesia, National monument, or Safari Garden. We can also
go to the Ancol beach where you can swim, play on the beach, and have picnics.
My family and I are looking forward to your coming. I hope to hear from you soon. Good bye.

With love.
