Dear Ana,

Thank you for agreeing to stay at my home in Ottawa during my trip to Japan next week for the International Science Conference at Kyoto. Allow me to give you a few instructions on managing home equipment in my absence.

All food-related equipment can be easily located in the kitchen, except barbecue, which is in the backyard. You will find the oven in the extreme right corner of the kitchen. You can cook delicious pizzas just by switching on the green button. The washing machine and dryer are in the basement. The heat in the dryer is set for cotton clothes. Please make necessary adjustments to suit your needs.

During winters, the main attraction in Ottawa is the Rideau canal which is frozen, and people use it for skiing. You can visit the Parliament building and watch a beautiful laser show in the evening explaining the history of Canada. Moreover, you must visit the world war museum that shows all the military equipment Canadian military used during the first half of twentieth-century.

I am sure you will enjoy this week long stay in the capital of Canada.

Your friend,
