Dear Louise,

Hi, Louise! How are you doing? I finally decided that I should visit France and spend a few days together with you and your family. Hence I have booked tickets for Christmas vacation as you too will have vacation. I am really excited now.

I would like to bring a nice gift for your family. Can you give me some idea? Is there anything in particular that you would like from India, especially Gujarat? Please feel free to tell me. You know Gujarat is famous for its handicrafts.

Since I am coming for ten days, I would also like to visit some places tn France. It is a beautiful country. This means that we would be travelling for a few days. Do let know which places we are likely to visit or are worth visiting. Hence also let me know what sort of clothes I need to bring? In winter I am sure it should be pretty cold. Do I need to carry any special clothing, for travelling?

I was curious about the feed you eat. Do you eat non-vegetarian food? You, know here in Gujarat we like only vegetarian food. Is vegetarian food available in restaurants in France? Do eat vegetarian food daily? Do you cook daily? You understand what I am trying to say. Do let me know. If you want me to buy any spices or any other ingredient, let know.

I would like to have more tips and suggestions from you regarding clothing, food or travel plans. I have enough time to shop and pack.

Eagerly waiting for your reply. Love you all.

Yours Lovingly,
