The Moveable Circle: Introduction

Time it Takes to Read: 1 minute

Every week, some members of the “Moveable Circle” get together. Sometimes, we watch a film or have dinner in a cheap restaurant. Whatever we do, we usually end up in a coffee shop discussing different topics from films, politics, sex, religion, and everything about the absurdity of life in this Third World country.

We cannot share all of our discussions because certain famous political personalities and celebrities will definitely sue us if we divulge some private information. Here is our first effort.
