Friendship always requires patience and understanding, even if the two people are from the same continent. Often friends are not only different nationalities, but different religions, with different political view. But, friendship is not based on a quality the mind can conceive, but on the quantity of love, the heart can acheive. best of luck with your search for true happiness and friendship.

Since the internet, the world becomes smaller. I am able to make friends from all over the world. Most of the time we communicate by email or MSN. I will also contact them by Skype if it's necessary.

Absolutely, that is something that I have always had. I don't like to stick to people simply because of their nationality or their cultural background. I will make friends and associaite with people who are like me personally and with interests, so a lot of times my personality does not fit into one nationality or culture; in fact, it seems as though I feed off many different types of interests that fit with all kinds of people. I love having friends who are very different in other ways, because there always seems to be something new. It never becomes a consideration for a person's nationality. That never factors into my choices for friends.
