Honestly say, I have too many friends to count. They are not just people that I have briefly met, but people that I have become very close with and will probably remain lifelong friends. My friends are mainly comprised of an even mixture of Russians and Europeans. Europeans are from Germany, Austria, France, England, Czech Republic, Poland, and Italy. Other friends I have found are from Nigeria and even the United States.
