I'm a friendly and open-minded person but I rarely met new people in the past. However, I usually move to other places because of my job, so now, I often meet new people. I very love it since it's so interesting and wonderful. When I meet new people, I can make friends with them and learn a lot of new things about the place where they live such as customs, costumes, food, drink, and traditional festivals.
