Looking for friends in USA

Hi guys, my name is Dana. I'm 28 years old. I'm from Kazakhstan, Almaty. Far away but fun place to live. I used to study in high school as an exchange student for half a year in Alabama. It was the only experience I had in the USA. Whenever I say to someone that I studied in Alabama, majority of American citizens start to laugh at me..I wonder why???
Therefore, now I would like to make friends from other states and compare how are they different with their life styles..
I can tell you about our country or Almaty city if you want as well..

Hey Dana!

I hope you will make many new contacts soon ;)


Hi Dana, you can email me and I can help you. I'm an American and headed back soon for film work, but traveling as you can see.

So people in Alabama laughed at you....Happens--but not all over the US. I lived in The South and it's just like visiting a foreign country sometimes and they don't see that much diversity but the rest is pretty ok. I can do tours, give advice etc.

I am from Alabama and  none of the American citizens laughs at me...:)

I think its just your misunderstanding...:)

That's because your apparently from there nancy.....

Hi! Dana . How are you ?

Hey, I'm actually driving through alabama right this moment.
I live in mississippi so don't feel bad when they
Laugh about Alabama . Take care

so sad i havent been there so i dont know how it is but i wish i could get  a feel of it soon, i am trying to get over there to have my own experience

They probably laughed at you because, to some people, the south is a big joke. Not all people here are like that. I'm from Texas and I'm sure people who are not from Texas would laugh at me, and have laughed at me. It just has a lot to do with the fact tht a long time ago, much of the south was uneducated farmers. They're no longer uneducated, but we still have distinguishable accents and a lot of farmers.
