            Dear Noura,

                        I'm writing to you from Paris. You can't imagine how cold and rainy it is here. Paris is a very beautiful city. There are many interesting places to visit. You can go for walks around the Eiffel Tower, the tallest tower in France.  You can also visit the Louvre museum, or spend the whole day with your children at the Disneyland Resort Paris. Also, it has a lot of coffee shops, restaurants, and parks. However, Paris is busy and crowded with over 30 million visitors per year. However, Parisian people are kind and friendly.

We are waiting for you to join us in our vacation. Don't forget to bring heavy clothes and gloves to keep you warm. Say hello to your family in Riyadh.

With love,

Nawal
