Letter from 15-year-old Donna Ponts to her grandmother.

(Punctuation, grammar, and spelling of original)


Hi! How are you doing? I hope you & everyone else are doing good. I’m doing well & I’m really happy. I really like Guyanese life.

What have you been up to? I’ve mainly been going to school. I’ve made alot of friends – we really have alot of fun! I’ve been getting good grades so far.

There are a few different foods I have never heard of before. Like a fruit called the Sourcup. It is hard to describe but all I know is that it’s delicious. It is good to eat it fresh & also to mash it up & put it in the freezer – it tastes like sherbert. There is also the Granadilly. You use the pulp & make cobbler out of it. It tastes better than but something like peach cobbler.

I am sorry to hear that you called the radio station but since you did I will not be writing to you anymore. I don’t know what you think. All I know is that I love it in Guyana & I truly am happy!

Yours truly,
