We live in two different continents. We live in two different countries. The ocean is between us. When ones of us go to bed , others get up and go to school. Different time, different spaces... But we share, we communicate, we are similar in minds and that is what make us closer. We are students, we are pen pals, we are the new citizens of the new word who can live together overcoming the distance, differences and time. Frienship is our leading star!
