Dear Mom and Dad, and also Moms ‘Close Friend’ Julie, and dads painting hobby.
Address: Somewhere Thousands of Miles Away
I;m doing well out here. I’m learning a lot about local culture, and getting closer to my uncle and cousin. It’s kind of weird that I hadn’t seen my uncle since I was a baby, especially since his wife died. I really feel like we should have been at that funeral. I’d like to pass along uncles number to my therapist in the big city, if that’s okay.
I made some new friends, most of whom are the kids of local business owners. I’ve never been clear on what dads company does, or why he has to talk to so many officials in other countries, but maybe we could look into opening a branch out here. I also got a part time job looking after kids, and met a nice young woman who gets the same look on her face auntie Julie does when I ask her about her ex husband. Keeping an eye on that one.
Also, I kept up with my trumpet lessons like I said I would, but haven’t found the time to paint. I know you guys are going to be gone a whole year, but maybe you could visit during the summer? The river flats is really beautiful in the evening.
In closing, you might be hearing some rumors about me being arrested, but there was no permanent record made, and I am not, repeat, not having the same problems as I was in my last school.
I’ve been… feeling pretty good, here.
I don’t need any spending money, but if mom could get the book she gave me when I was little about the birds and the bees sent here ASAP, I’d really appreciate it.
Love, your son, Waruiko.
P.S: Please turn down any interviews for national TV this year. I can’t say why.
