I often met my friend in a cafe or sometimes when we've got no money we just met in one of our houses. We usually meet before 12.00 and finished at the night or sometimes we do sleepovers.

I don’t hang out with friends so instead I’ll be talking about where me and my cousins go. So the place we usually meet is each other’s houses around 3 to 5’o clock. It’s always had been fun to see their faces, playing games together, walking to the café’s together.. It never bores me, and I really cannot be separated from them no matter what happens. The three of us were brothers in arms.

Where do you meet your friends? What time do you usually meet? I used to meet my friends at the bus stop near the university...We didn't have a favourite place, we used to go to some cafe or a fast food restaurant where we could order an ice cream, a smoothie, o some other drink with a snack. The time depended on the classes schedule, we used to get together when we were free. If we had to meet on the weekend, then that was usually in the afternoons after 5.00 p.m. to take a break and relax after having studied a while during the day.
