23rd August 2010
As you know I have been applying for various higher education courses in the USA. I am writing you this letter to tell you that i have finally, after two years, been accepted and have received my admissions letter as well as my visa. I am scheduled to leave in just three days. I am ever so excited, but so sad to be leaving you, my best friend, and India behind.
We have been best friends for twenty years and have stood by each other through thick and thin, and shared our problems, secrets, and have always been there for one another, especially when my parents passed away last year.
I wish you all the best for the future, you already have my email address, and I will send you my new address and new cell phone number as soon as I have them. Please promise to always keep in touch,
