b) Dear Mother,
Yesterday I arrived in Great Britain. I decided to stay in one of the small hotels in London. My room is very comfortable. There is a bed, a wardrobe, an armchair and a desk here. I want to take a shower and to have breakfast. As for my other plans they depend on the weather. You know that the weather is very changeable in Great Britain.
If the weather isn't rainy I'll go to the Regent's Park and to the Zoo. If it rains I'll attend St. Paul's Cathedral. I read a lot of information about its architect Sir Christopher Wren. For 35 years the building of St. Paul's Cathedral went on, and Wren was an old man before it was finished. After that I'm going to have supper in one of the small cafes. At 9 o'clock I'll return to the hotel and go to bed because tomorrow I'm planning to see the Tower of London, the National Gallery and many other sightseengs. Sec you soon. Yours Vira
