Where do you meet your friends? What time do you usually meet?
I often meet my friend at coffee shop - a warm place with music and outside view.
My friend specially love going to the coffee shop in rainy day. I think it's a wonderful experience when staying in the warm and full of light place enjoying hot coffee while it's cold and wet outside. So peaceful!
