I have many friends in Japan. I was sad when I came here, because I was sorry to part with my friends. I was especially sad to part with a close friend.
She is a friend from high school. Her name is Yuri. She is very beautiful and smart, on top of that. She is kind. She always helps me when I have trouble. Also, she often encourages me: "You can do it."
I like her very much.
I hope we'll be close friends forever.
