Hi, Tim,

Great to hear from you and so glad you’re coming to my country!

If I were you, I’d bring warm clothes, such as jumpers and jackets, as it’s quite cold at the moment but you don’t need a hat or scarf. You asked about something for your mum. We have lots of typical things but I suggest you get her some biscuits as these are special in our country and something you cannot buy in other countries.

The best thing to see is the stadium. It is very famous and has just been built and you can go on a guided tour. Ask your teacher to take you!

Yes, I hope we can meet too. Tell me the exact dates you are here and then we could try meeting in one of the cafes in town to have a drink together.

Can’t wait to see you!

Karin
