I meet friends in tea shop or bar. I usually meet friends in tea shop where we enjoy hot tea and Samosa. I usually talk informally. Since covid I could not meet my friends. I'm in home isolation. I met my friends on zoom where we talk about study related things.

I often meet with my friends in bars or restaurants near to the job. We went out when there was a celebration for a birthday, christmas, or any special event. Now, We don't go out because this places are blockdown for the pandemic.
