You are about to go on a vacation. A friend from another town shall come and stay in your apartment.

Write a letter to this friend. In your letter

  • Explain where your friend can get the key to the apartment
  • Give your friend some instructions about using your apartment
  • Recommend some place to go

Answer:

Dear Sanjay

I hope this letter finds you in pink of your health. Thanks for agreeing to stay in my house for a month while I am on a trek in the Alps.

When you will reach Pune next month, you will find the apartment key with my neighbour Mr. Mane who is a war veteran. The old age may have hampered his movement and do call him in advance.

Once you enter the apartment, reconnect the LPG burner as I will have it disengaged for safety. The milkman delivers milk early in the morning and the housemaid follows to cook the breakfast. I have updated both about your stay and I am sure they shall follow your specific instructions. You may use the washing machine and other electronic equipment as you please.

In case you are bored, you may visit Old Pune where you shall see the past glory of the Maratha Empire. Especially, the Kelkar Museum and the Shaniwarwada are a treat for the history lovers who, I know, you are. You may also choose to explore the nearby markets which have foods exclusive to Pune. Being a foodie, I am sure you will cherish those.

In case needed do give me a call. Thanks in advance for looking after my house.

Love,

Sonali
