I received no news.


Hello, I have to write my impression of my English e-mail-partner Tomy Backström, a seventeen-year-old boy. He only sends me one letter. So, I don't know much about him. What I do know is that he lives in Sipoo, near Helsinki. In his school, there 're about 120 pupils and 15 teachers. He does all kind of things in his spare time. He likes to play football and ice- hockey (the same version as we play overhear). Tomy smokes and also likes to drink. He likes to go out as all people of our age. And so, that's it. That 's all I know about him. It's a pity he didn't send me more letters, so I could learn something more about young people in Finland.

But so what? I asked my girlfriend what she hat to say about her partner.

He likes to play the guitar. He also lives in Sipoo and has a big house. He has to go by bus, because his school is 10 km from his house. At weekends he goes out with his friends to Nikkilä, that's the Centrum-place of Sipoo. There he likes to eat pizza with his friends. What I noticed is, that they are all crazy about sports. So, there 're some differences between Finish people and Belgium people who are between the age of 17 and 18.

I hope he will put his photo on my web-site, so I'll get an idea of my Finish e-mail-partner.
