Dear Ivan,

How’s life? I know you must be very busy these days since it’s the beginning of the term. I hope you are not too tired and still have time for yourself. I found that the school here is exciting too. I have made a lot of friends, I’ll tell you about them later on my next e-mail.

I have a new hobby now. Planting! You won’t believe it. I grow so many kinds of fruit here such as guava, mango, orange, and dragon fruit. I usually buy the seed at a nearby shop. I’m crazy about planting now. I guess because it’s so easy to get the seeds or young plants, and the soil here seems so nice to plants. Everything grows easily here. I own a small farm behind my house. I love my farm. It’s about two hundred square meters. My little brother helps me at the farm. We make a great team.

Well, I promise to send you some fruits when they are ripe some day and let me know how they taste.

Bye,
Rehan
