Dear Mom and Dad,
I finally arrived at the city of gold. People from all over the world come visiting me. I'm fine.

I have my own cage. Okay, it's a small cage. Sometimes it feels like the cage is even smaller than me. In fact, I hate the cage.

We have no air conditioning and the heat is unbearable Ö I feel like a grilled penguin. My neighbour, the bird, isn't moving anymore.

They just give me food, drinks and accommodation, so I canít send money home. Sorry...
