    Do you have online friends in a different country?

    An open question to possible contributions of the life experience with those friends.

    Yes Tim, most of my online friends are from different countries. Especially here on HubPages but also Facebook and other sites. The Internet has brought the world much closer together.

      I agree & it has opened my mind too. I believe I have received many blessings from these relationships that I value.

    Oh my goodness, Tim!!!!  Based on my (our) participation here at Hubpages, I have numerous online friends from a country other than the U.S.!!!   It's one of the wonderful positive aspects and "privileges" of being a member here.   I could go on listing for an hour, but just to name a few of my "buddies" from their countries.....there's  Martie (South Africa), Nell Rose (England) as well as Eddy, Suzi, our Irish lass, Devika from Croatia.....Alun, aka "Greensleeves."  I'll bet you have developed a special bond with a few of our fellow writers from elsewhere!
    I see this as a privilege and beneficial side effect of our writer;s site!  After 6 years, I have learned much invaluable information from these friends.  You can't get much better than learning about a country, it's culture & geographic points of interest right from the horses mouth!!  Have a great day, Tim....Peace, Paula

      You brought up many names that have contributed to my journey here at HP including yours :-) They all have contributed to expanding my mind leading to a global perspective, which I am thankful for.

      What a wonderful short list Paula. Isn't it just wonderful. I ain't gonna get rich here, but through my friends I will have riches innumerable and invaluable. And maybe folks should know that the Midwest America is a foreign compared to Southwest

      Oh my..How could I ever neglect 2 add our wonderful sweet Aussie friend, Jodah! Everyone loves Jodah! There are so many & if I had time, I could list ALL, but would not intentionally leave out a friend from all the great places outside the U.S.

    Yes, on Facebook and other places where I post my views. However, we do not often communicate except when posting.
