its funny how a single sport can bring so many people together in the world. For instance, some one can be 1000 plus miles from home in a new place surrounded by strangers, and manage to meet people through the sport they love. It may not be so easy at first because its difficult to determine who plays and who doesn't, especially when the people look different than what you are accustomed to.I've learned that no matter how far you go, as long as you have a soccer ball by your feet,there will always be new people to meet. some good and some bad, depending on your skill level some people may grow jealous and try to hurt you, in contrary some will admire your skill and try to learn off you. Either way, there are new people to be met as well as new rivals to beat.So remember no matter where you are, if you look hard enough, you will find what your looking for.
