My friend Hussein:
Thanks for the photo. It's nice to actually see the person I'm speaking with. You look like a nice man. You have a kind face. I'm sorry about asking your name again, but I thought Hussein was a last name. My friend's last name is also Hussein. He's originally from Pakistan. He's  older than I am, but we're good friends. He's taught me a lot about his faith and culture. I have a lot of respect for him. Regarding my age..... I'm not 45 years old, I'm younger than that. The photo I sent was taken a few years a go, while I was on vacation.  Since my mother has been ill, I haven't traveled as much as I once did.  She requires a lot of assistance. It's difficult for her to get around, she's now in a wheelchair. I take care of her. Today is my day off from work. I had lunch out with some friends, and went to a movie. Tomorrow is the weekend, and I have to work.  I don't like to work on the weekend because of religious reasons. You asked me about what we discuss at work...... We discuss a variety of topics and subjects, such as politics, religion, current events, etc.
We just elected a president last November. My country was really divided as to who they wanted as their president. Many people were for Bush and many people were against Bush for president. It was so important to people, that everyone turned out to vote. (including myself). Throughout the presidential campaign, politics was all we seemed to discuss at work. Americans are passionate about their politics and ideals. I remember when I was a young boy, my father would take me with him to vote. He felt that it was a responsibility and a person's right to vote. My father died when I was young. He was a wonderful person. You would have liked him. Anyway ... lately we've been discussing the war in Iraq, and of the young men serving there.  There are many that feel that America should not be there, and there are other's who feel that they need our help to become self sufficient, and free to choose their own kind of government. I wish the best for the people there. They deserve a leader and government that listens to them and works for them. (not the opposite).Americans tend to discuss just about everything, including sex. We're open like that with one another, both male and female. We're not embarrassed by the subject.  I sent you some photos of my city and different places around town. Did you get them? I plan to take some more pictures and will send you some. Okay?  You also asked about my activities..... As I told you before, I come from a large family. We often get together over each other's houses for dinner, parties, and such. I like to keep fit, so I go running a lot.  I try to work out at least three times a week. I live near the lake, and often go running by it. I also enjoy going out with friends and having a good time. I like to read a lot, and listen to music. I love all kinds of music, but when I need to calm down, I listen to classical music. It makes me feel peaceful inside. I enjoy having parties at my home with friends. I like to entertain. I hope that I answered all your questions. That's what friends are for, right? Well, take care my friend. I hope you have a good weekend. I hope to hear from you soon.
                                                  Your friend,
