Would you like to meet for a coffee?


Yes! When?


I'm working now, but I finish work at five. Maybe at 5.15?

OK. Where?


The Blue Café is nice. I love the tea there. heart

I usually like to meet my friends in any open places like any park or any other open field and we like to meet each other in the afternoon. If want to say more specifically it will about half-fast four in the afternoon.

I usually meet up with my friends at a cafe which is called "TeTe". We generally get together at the evening. Btw, due to corona, we have not been meeting for a long time.

I normally meet my friends at work or home, and I hardly ever go to cafes or restaurants. This is because I don't have enough time to meet my friends on cafes. I also prefer to get away from restaurants and cafes, because they aren't mostly clean, especially in Afghanistan I don't like to go such a places. When a friend offer me to meet him/her in a cafe or restaurant, then I often reject him/her. Sometimes, if I don't have time or there is no other place to meet each other, I will accept my friends. I would rather to meet my friends on holidays, especially on Fridays than other days. But it is necessary to meet one friend of mine, I prefer to meet him in the afternoon. I should truly say that I haven't seen my friends after March, you know this is because we are in quarantine now and I don't want to make health problems for my family members, society and my friends. So, now social networks like Facebook or Watsup and so on make it easy to get or be in touch with friends. These days, I am usually in touch with my friends and colleagues via these ways. Of course, I suggest you to stay at home to be healthy. I hope to return back at normal days very soon. Thank you so much M. Sharif Tayyebi
