Oh I forgot. I have a friend when I go to the pool that is from Japan. She has told me some things, but not a lot. I haven't been to the pool for almost a year, so haven't seen her in a while.

I remember when Mom was taking night classes to get her high school diploma. I would go with her so her teacher could help me with my homework.
There was was a lady there from Thailand who was improving her English. I had a lot of fun helping her learn some new words, esp. the slang ones (yes they were the clean ones)

I do. Many of them started out being my English As A Second Language students when they first arrived in this country. I love meeting people of different cultures & learning about their customs & traditions.

I have friends from many cultures. My sister-in-law is Chinese; my cousin is engaged to a Chinese gal; a very good friend of mine is African American; I also have Native American friends; and I grew up in southern Texas where many of my friends were Hispanic.

We do have a family from Africa in our church and they have had their other church (all from Africa) come and tell about their worship they do in Africa. They did their worship dances and songs and drumming. They are from a country on the eastern border of Congo (I can never remember the name but starts with a B) and were refugees for several years before getting a sponsorship to Colorado. The women wear the prettiest dresses.

Through the my internet crochet group, and Sparkspeople I have many friends from many cultures. I love learning about them.
I had one friend from Yemen that had to move because of rebel fighting, sadly I have not heard from her in years and don't even know if she's still alive.

Since highschool, I have always had someone from another culture among my friends. My SIL is from the Phillipines. I hope to go back to her village someday when she visits her family.

We lived on a small island off Puerto Rico for 12 years. We particiapted and enjoyed their special days and celebrations.

Puerto Rico is an American Territory, but Spanish is theiri offical language and many of the handed down traditions are still followed.

Oh yes. I have friends from all ethnic backgrounds. I was one of only a few Americans in the International Club back in college and I still keep in touch with several of them and now even in mt small town I have friends from other cultures, Philipines, Mexico. Russia, Poland, England, etc. It makes life more interesting.

Live, laugh and love!

I don't anymore. I used to have a really close friend where I used to work, but she moved to another state and I lost contact with her.

Do you have friends from a different ethnic background from you? Are you familiar with their ethnic culture? Do you find it very different from yours?
