I received no news


Joni Turunen, my e-mailpartner, seems to be a very nice boy. He's 17 years old (maybe 18 nowadays). He lives in Sipoo, a very small place, some 30 kilometers from Helsinki.

He never wrote me what he looks like. Actually, I'm a bit curious about it. He likes to practice sport. He plays European football. He plays the guitar and likes older music. I think that he knows a lot about it.

It's difficult to say something about his personality, because he didn't write much about himself. From the letters I received, I can say that he's very helpful to other people, especially his friends. I think that he's got a few close friends who are very important to him. I don't think that he likes school very much. But, I'm sure when he has to, he'll work hard for it.

We don't really have the same interests, but that doesn't mean that I didn't like the e-mail project. Now, I learnt more about Finland, a country of which I knew almost nothing. I only regret that I didn't receive a last letter and a picture of Joni.

But, I wish Joni  good luck in his life and I'm sure it will be successful!
