I meet my friends, every weekday after work. We meet in the main street at 5;30 p.m. Sometimes we meet one hour later if someone has to do shopping or stay late at job. We go to our favorite coffee, we usually take black tea and a slice of lemon cake. We relax and enjoy our time together. This is how we keep our friendship for ages.

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.
