There's no special place for me and my friends to meet. I see my friends often in the evening.

I used to meet with my friends in the university cafeteria from Monday to Friday at 9 pm. Now, I always meet with them online through the Zoom app.

I meet my friends when their birthdays have , and also my birthday. And usually we meet at donations and weddings of friends. But It not always . Only one or two times a year! When we meet , we cook and eat something at one friend home .We meet on the whole day from morning to evening. It was the happy times! The last meet is six months ago. Now , we can't meet each other whatever because of Covid-19. And, I sometimes met my partners on Saturday Evenings. They aren't my friends. But we have understanding and kindness each other. We usually went to restaurant and we talk about our job , and then went back to home before night.

I always go out with my friends Abed and Marwa to a nice Cafe in Saida, south Lebanon. But recently and due to COVID crisis we are looking for other options where we can feel safe.

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.
