You havе rеcеivеd a lеttеr from your English-speaking pеn-friеnd Thomas who writes:
… Last summer my family and I went to Hawaii. I’d never seen an active volcano before. We were walking on the still warm lava! I wasamazed by its horror and beauty. What natural phenomenon have you ever been greatly impressed by? When did it happen? What did you feel when you experienced it?

Thanks for your letter. I'm sorry I couldn't answer you earlier, I had to prepare for an exam.
You must have had an awesome trip. I've climbed an inactive volcano, but it is probably nothing compared to walking on warm lava. I am glad to know you liked this experience. The last natural phenomenon to impress me a lot was the polar day I experienced last summer while visiting the Solovetsky islands. Funny, but mostly it felt sleepy, since I was completely knocked off my sleeping routine by continious daylight within 4 days.
Horse riding must be an awesome sport. Is it difficult to control the horse? How high can it jump? How fast can you go on horseback?
I'm sorry, but I have to leave now, it's time for me to walk my dog.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
