Greetings from... (postcards)

Dear Mac, 

Greetings from the beautiful island of Hawaii. This is the most wonderful place ever, and I’m having a great time. I just got here yesterday and I have already taken surfing lessons, tried some local dishes and got a bad case of sunburn when I was enjoying my lunch at the beach. Now I look like a pepper, but because of the sunburn I haven’t climbed the volcano. Tonight we are going to sit by the campfire telling stories and making smokes. 

Well, see you when I get back,

Dear Jovan, 

Greetings from Egypt! I am sorry I haven’t written you before, but I’ve been on holidays. So I’m writing from Cairo, the capital city of Egypt to let you know how I’m getting on. 

It’s hot and sunny and I’m having a fantastic time. I’m staying at a big hotel at the city centre. I’ve been here since Friday and I’ve already done lots of interesting things. 

Last Monday I went to Giza. I saw the Great Pyramids and Sphinx. The view from up close was breathtaking! On Thursday I took a boat trip down the Nile. It was great. I’ve taken lots of photos so far. On Saturday I came back to Giza and climbed on top of Cheops’s pyramid. 

I’ve also been shopping at the stores and big markets in the centre and bought a lot of little pyramids and sphinxes. 

We’re coming back next Sunday, so I’ll see you then. 

Take care,
