“It seemed to me that we had known each other for all our lives. And the feeling was mutual,” says Yuliya.
The girl lives in Minsk, Derrick is a resident of Sao Paulo, but they regularly visit each other.
“Of course, being partners in a long-distance relationship is not easy. But we talk every day and plan our future.”
Knowing that Derek is interested in the cultures of different countries, Yuliya gave him an ornamented T-shirt made by the Belarusian company symbal.by as a gift when she came to Brazil.
The girl was impressed by the country and in particular, by the responsiveness and openness of its people. “There is a different culture of relations between people, there is a certain level of trust, friendship and mutual amicability,” she says.
Not long ago Derrick Green visited Belarus and celebrated his birthday here. The musician was a little bit surprised by the cold winter in Belarus, but on the whole, he liked his staying in our country.
“He is such a dear, he is sensible, kind and sincere… And he loves our Belarusian draniks [potato pancakes]!”
The young couple are set to live together in the near future, but they have not yet decided on which continent they will settle.
