Dear Karen,
Guess what? My brother, Mike, and I are going to go to the Winter Carnival in Quebec City this year. It’s at the beginning of February, and we’re going to go up and stay for a week. Can you join us?
Do you know about the Quebec Winter Carnival? It’s a lot of fun. There are always exciting things to do and see there. They have night parades and firewoeks, and lots of winter sports. (you can either watch them or do them. Of course, I’m going to go skiing every day!) There are interesting special events, too – like an ice-carving contest.
 And we don’t have to stay at the Carnival the whole time. I want to visit Quebec City, do some shopping, and go to some of their great restaurants. So, are you interested in coming with us? Let us know soon, so we can get you a room at our hotel.
