From the Russian East to the American West



In summer 1981 after my 3rd year at the University I took part in an expedition to the Caribbian to study hurricanes. Our ship "Akademik Korolev" left Vladivostok and few days later, passing by Kamchatka, my friend and I wrote a letter, put into the bottle and through it into the Ocean....... We forgot about this bottle with the next down. Two years later, after my graduation from University I got letter from Manhattan Beach, California. First, I couldn't undestand :"Who know my name and address in a small Siberian town-my parents address...?"

................................................ Teresa and I have had correspondense during 9 years, hadn't met each other. We met first time in 1991, in San Francisco during cultural expedition "Russian-America 250 years".
