I have an old friend. He and I were classmates about 40 years ago. He lives in my neighborhood. I often see him in the street.

ı rarely meet my old friends because we are different cities and some of my friends are married, they have children so that they concern their family and they don't have enough time for meeting.

I see them at least once time in a month and we usually meet in a bar or in one of our houses. We're not friends with any of my old teachers.
