Sample Answer 1:
Hope this letter finds you in good health and spirits. I have something very interesting to share with you today in this letter.
You see, last Thursday my dad and I decided to take a trip to the Quetta museum that is located on the Steward Road. He wanted me to learn a bit more about the history of our country so this museum was a perfect place to start.
The museum is full of historical artefacts relating to the period before the separation of Pakistan and India. Among other things, it exhibits the first ever constitution drafted for our country, the first ever proposed national anthem that was handwritten by Sir Syed Khan. It also showcases the wax sculptures of many of the founding fathers of our country.
Honestly, it felt amazing. It was almost like as if I was there with them during that pre-partition era. After observing all these artefacts, I am filled with even more respect for our ancestors as they had to make great sacrifices in order to gain independence.
I say we should catch up some time soon and visit this museum together.
Lots of love,

Model Answer 2:
Hope this letter finds you in good spirits and health. As you are aware, I am currently in Chicago for a month for some professional work. I am writing this letter to share my experience of visiting the 'Science Museum' in Chicago Downtown, which I thought you would enjoy.
Let me share my experience of the museum with you. The entry fee was $15 but I was lucky to get a free pass from one of my colleagues. It’s visited by a large number of local citizens and tourists. The ground floor displays the invention of robots, with many robots on display and how they were developed. I learned that theories based on the abacus were further expanded to enhance this technology. The first floor displays the extinct animals, skeletons of dinosaurs and the history behind their extinction. This was quite interesting. Then the second floor has a shop from where you can buy books and souvenirs. Kiosks are placed on all floors which provide more information about the displayed items.
It was a great learning opportunity and a fabulous experience and I will cherish the experience. I wish you had been with me when I visited the museum.
Why don't you write me back about things you have done recently and enjoyed?
