無事に着いたよ。君が言ってたようにすごくいいところで、来て本当によかったと思います。イヴァンくんは僕にとてもよくして くれます。もう一人新しい友達が出来たんだ。リアという名前の、イタリア出身のアクアめーる配達鳥なの。僕と一緒に休暇中です。イヴァンくんのお姉さんと 妹さんは、彼女を肩に乗せたり僕をひざに乗せるのが大好きなんだよ！
Draga Mariko i dragi Kamegoro,
Pogodi tko je sad sa mnom?! Da, Pingvin Ryota je ovdje! Pojavio sa sa jednom malom bijelom ptičicom, koju je upoznao na putu ovamo. Hvala ti što si mu dala adresu. Stvarno je zakon! Upravo sam ga pitao da mi daje lekcije u ronjenju ovo ljeto.
I don’t know exactly why he is traveling to Croatia, but it seems that Kamegoro somehow made him interested in the place. He probably told Ryota how beautiful the Adriatic Sea looked. I’d love to swim in it, too!
OH?! Je li on pingvin? Želio bi ga upoznati! Molim te, daj mu moju adresu preko Aquamaila, ako možeš. Znaš li zašto dolazi u Hrvatsku?
Žao mi je što sam zaboravio da ti pišem o mojim sestrama. Starija se zove Lucija and mlađa je Danica. Obje pozdravljaju tebe i Kamegora.
I went to the city library last Saturday and borrowed several books on Croatia with very nice photos. No wonder Ryota wants to visit there so much.
Oh, I’ve almost forgot to tell you about him! Kamegoro’s friend, Penguin Ryota, is heading to Croatia right now. He left Antarctica in February or March for the Adriatic Sea. I know it has been his dream to swim in it. What a brave guy (I mean, penguin)!
I miss hearing from you.
Nažalost, još nisam vidio Spidermana 3, ali jedva čekam. Bojim se da ćeš morati biti ljubomoran, jer izgledam bolje od obojice, zajedno. Samo se šalim! Mislim da ćete ipak to trebati odlučiti ti i Mariko. Ne mogu čekati da vidim film, pa da možemo o njemu pričati.
Nadam se da se čujemo opet ubrzo.
Have you seen Spiderman 3 yet?!
The world premier was in Japan, and we got to see it before any other parts of the world! Mariko-chan and I loved the film. We won’t tell you anything about the story till you watch it yourself. I wonder if you look as good as Tobey Maguire or James Franco. If you do, I’ll be so jealous!
Dear Ivan,I’m sorry it took me so long to write back! How are you? Kamegoro and I have been doing well.
I am so sorry to hear that you lost your uncles and grandfather because of the war. Having lived through such hard times is beyond my imagination. My grandfather was taken to the war during the World War II, but he fell sick there and was sent back home before the war got worse.
I’ve been to Hiroshima and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. The museum is really a must to see. I was extremely shocked and speechless to see the objects and pictures displayed there. I want to take you there someday.
This is the official homepage of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial. Make sure to visit the virtual museum in it. It’s very good. I feel I should study more about the history.
P.S. You forgot to write about your sisters’ names and ages!
These are my friends. They carry the aquamail to people all over Japan. Right now they are on their lunch break. Aren’t they cute?
