Hey, emitis ;) Thank you very much for your kind words :) I am from Ukraine. Do you know about this country? I know, about Iran, but I have never spoke with people from Iran, only with you ;) Can I ask you? Can you tell me more about your country please? If it's not hard for you... And... Why don't you have a picture on this site?
I am looking forward to your answer ;)

Hello Demy. I'm sorry for the delay in responding. yes, i know Ukraine because we read about most of countries in Geography book in the school. I know your country has many neighbors ( 8 country) and it capital is KIEW. also i know your country is very beautiful and flourishing and has old history. but as you know, IRAN is home to one of the world's oldest civilizations and many ethnic groups live in it. Iran is the eighteen largest country in the world. The northern part of Iran is covered by dense rain forests called Shomal or the Jungles of Iran. The eastern part consists mostly of desert basins such as the Dasht-e Kavir, Iran's largest desert, in the north-central portion of the country, and the Dasht-e Lut, in the east, as well as some salt lakes. This is because the mountain ranges are too high for rain clouds to reach these regions. The only large plains are found along the coast of the Caspian Sea and at the northern end of the Persian Gulf, where Iran borders the mouth of the Shatt al-Arab (or the Arvand Rūd) river. Smaller, discontinuous plains are found along the remaining coast of the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz and the Gulf of Oman. Iran's wildlife is composed of several animal species including bears, gazelles, wild pigs, wolves, jackals, panthers, Eurasian Lynx, and foxes. Domestic animals include, sheep, goats, cattle, horses, water buffalo, donkeys, and camels. The pheasant, partridge, stork, eagles and falcon are also native to Iran.One of the most famous members of Iranian wildlife is the critically endangered Asiatic cheetah, also known as the Iranian Cheetah, whose numbers were greatly reduced after the Iranian Revolution.Iran consists of the Iranian Plateau with the exception of the coasts of the Caspian Sea and Khuzestan Province.
finally if you want know more i glad that you ask. I have many photo that is hard for me to chose one of them for this site, but i do that as soon as possible.
Best regards.
EMITIS

Hi, emitis :) I really hope to see you in Ukraine as soon as possible. And it will be really very cool. I wait you <3
In Ukraine we speak two languages it's Ukrainian and Russian, I speak both of them, but in everyday life I use especially Russian. Sometimes it's a little hard because I study in Russian school and when will be exams I will pass it in Ukrainian. What about me, I speak also Greek and English, but I continue study English :)
Me too I have been in Turkey as you are. But I have never been in Spain and it's my dream for now :) So maybe I will come in your country in future. Now it's will be my dream... And also I can see you there ;) And.. Can you tell me more about people in Iran? What is customs and traditions in your country? Do you want I can tell you something about my country, if it's intresting for you?
Your new friend Demy <3

Hi Demy. Thank you for the hospitality. It's so good that you can talk in four languages. I also can speak Persian and Kurdish because my dad is Persian and my mam is Kurdish. I'm trying to improve my English language too and i hope to succeed. I just tell you that Iranian are very hospitality. I love to know more something about countries, especially Ukraine, if it is possible.
Thanks

Hey emitis =) Sorry for late answer...
So Ukraine is a big country... Ukraine is one of the largest countries of Eastern Europe. The capital of Ukraine is Kyiv. It has state borders with Russia, Belarus and Moldova. It also borders on Poland, Czechia, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania. In the south it is washed by the Black and the Azov seas. The population of Ukraine is about 47 million people... People speak Ukrainian, the official language of the country. The national currency in Ukraine is hryvnia.There are a lot of plaaces to see in Ukraine and to be proud of :) There the Carpathians with their legends, castles, cathedrals and unique traditions. There`s Kyiv-one of the oldest cities in Europe, with it`s historical monuments, museums, theatres, exhibitions halls, art galleries and it`s rich cultural life. The Ukrainians are a gregarious people who will often gather in cafes or street markets to socialize.
What English songs do you like? Can you say me some names of famous Iranian songs? <3

Hey Demy. Sounds nice. Sorry for the delay. Your explanation is very thorough. I like Ukrainians because they are gregarious people who will often gather in cafes or street markets to socialize. My favorite English singer is Enrique Iglesias. He is Spanish singer. I like Iranian traditional singer such as Shajarian and Shalila.

Hi emitis. I can give you some names of our famous singers. For example: Ані Лорак, Эрика, Alyosha, Бумбокс, Злата Огневич, Океан Эльзы. Also I can give you a name of one song in Ukrainian (not Russian language). You can find it on YouTube. It's Zlata Ohnevych 'Зозуля' (In English cuckoo :) Do you like this song and language? What are you favourite subjects?

I live in a city and it has lots of advantages, and I like it, but I find that spending time in the nature can be really relaxing. I like to go to the lake nearby my city, to have long walks in nature with my friends and to make little picnics. I like picnics the most. I usually make them twice a month and go to some peaceful and relaxing place with my friends, have long walks and talk. I can't imagine my life without spending time in the nature.

I live inside of the city and I like it. But I often go outside to be in harmony with nature. I like to swim in the lake or river, I like to make barbeque... It's one of the best time spending for me :)
