Joey has written a letter to his Irish friend Sinead, who has been on a trip to Africa. But he has made a few mistakes. Try to correct them if they are wrong.

Dear Sinead,
It's really cool that you did so many fantastic things in Africa. Sometimes I think about what (1) would have happened if I went to Africa. If the weather were too hot, I (2) will drink a lot of water. You weren't afraid when you saw all those wild animals. But I think I (3) will scream if I saw a wild lion! Your story made me very excited about visiting Africa. If I ever get a chance to go, I definitely (4) did. My parents said they (5) would let me go if I paid for half of the flight. I have an afternoon-job - but I'll need a lot of money! If I (6) had started planning earlier, maybe I could have gone this year. But I was too lazy. Maybe I'll do it next year. If I (7) have time, I would write more - but I don't. But please write back. If you do, I (8) would send you a longer letter next time. I (9) would have told you you more about myself if you tell me you're interested in that.
