We are from three different countries (the USA, Russia and Japan). There are five bedrooms (they’re called galleys). There is a small room called the service module, too. Our personal computer (for e-mails) is in it, and there is a big white table… and a bike. My galley is very small, of course! There is a sleeping bag in it, but it isn’t on the floor, it’s on the wall! No, it isn’t cold. It’s very warm and cosy in here! And it isn’t dark. There are a lot of colours on the walls, and there are fourteen windows. What’s my favourite thing? Good question! In space, my favourite thing is the computer… and on Earth it’s my bed! Write again soon. Maria and the crew.
