Dear Polina,
I am in Lviv. I came here four days ago and now I'm with Dmytro's family. At first the weather was terrible and we didn't go for a walk. The weekend was great, it was warm and there was no rain. Dmytro showed me Lviv. It is a fantastic city! We saw wonderful places — old parks, churches, galleries and museums. In the museum I learnt a lot about the history of Lviv, it was really exciting. We heard interesting stories about famous people, and I took some photos. It was half past four when we came back home. Yesterday it was Sunday, the twenty-ninth of March. Dmytro's mum and I did some shopping in the city centre. There were lots of people at the department store. I bought some souvenirs for my friends and a teddy bear for my little brother. Dmytro gave me a present for my book collection — "Treasure Island" by Stevenson. It is an old book — R. L. Stevenson wrote it in 1883. I made new friends here, that's why I enjoyed my holidays.

Love, Katia

DOLPHINS
Dolphins are some of the most playful and intelligent animals on our planet. They are not fish, but are mammals. Dolphins can't breathe water like fish, but need to come to the surface to breath air.
Dolphins are very social animals. Many dolphins travel in groups called pods. Sometimes pods can group together to make giant pods as large as 1000 or more dolphins. Baby dolphins are called calves.
They like to jump and play and do acrobatic spins in the air.
