Hello I Wayan Bety,

Thank you so much for accompanying me to go around the city this past weekend. It was so wonderful. Bali is wonderful, your family is cool, and I haven’t felt more welcome than what you gave me last week. The trip was tiring, but I still enjoyed it immensely.

I’d like to reciprocate by inviting you and your family to my home in New Jersey. (I hope you can use a break from your hard work!) I know very well about the city and I can show you all my favorite spots here. And no need to worry, of course you’d all be able to stay at my flat during your trip. Don't worry about the cost; it will be my treat. It’s the least I can do to pay you back for your amazing hospitality.

Please write back soon if you would like to visit.

Yours truly,


Michelle Trump
