You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear .................,


Model Answer: 

Dear Rohan,

Hope this letter finds you in good health and spirit.  I haven’t heard from you since we did some mountain hiking together about a year ago.  Anyway, you surely will be glad to know that I'll be visiting your town from 7th of October till the 10th of the month for the purpose of attending a big car auction in order to buy an old but good car for me at an affordable price.

I'll be staying at Maple Leaf hotel in the downtown of your city which is located right at the intersection of Jenkins Avenue and O’Conner Street.  Now, I'm not too sure how far exactly you're from the hotel, but I'd be more than happy to see you at my hotel.  But, if you're too busy to visit me during one of those weekdays because of your work, please just let me know where I can enjoy some nice Japanese foods, along with some nice oriental music, during the evening. 

I guess, that should do it for now, but please do feel free to visit me when I arrive in your city. 

Warm wishes,
