Dear Brad,

Sorry I have not been in touch recently. I have intended writing to you for ages, but I have been so busy studying for my exams that I have not had time to do anything else for weeks now. I really am fed up with it!

However, as soon the exams are over, I'm planning to spend a couple of weeks on a beach somewhere. Because I have been studying so hard I have not had time to go out and I have managed to save up a bit of money. I am thinking of going to Thailand actually. You have been there, haven't you? Do you remember the names of any cheap hotels in Bangkok, and is it a good idea to book a room before I go? Do you think two weeks is enough time to see the place?

Despite the exams, I am still really enjoying being here in San Francisco. It's a great city with lots to do. It's really clean, relaxed and very cosmopolitan. There are some excellent shops and most things are much cheaper than back home. My apartment overlooks the bay and you can see the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, the famous prison, from my bedroom window. I visited the prison a few days ago actually. Everything there is exactly the same as the day they stopped using it as a prison. Did you know the gangster Al Capone spent ten years there? Apparently, the worst thing about being there was that in the evenings, they could hear laughter and parties from the mainland. With all the work I have been doing at the moment I know that feeling!

Anyway, time to do some more studying - if only I had worked harder earlier in the course! Please write back soon and tell me all the latest news.
