If I'm going to say that it is good to have friends who come from the same country, can I say, "It's good to have the same national orientation friends?"
The friends are from Italy but I'm from Thailand. We are now in U.S.
You can say, 'It's good to have multiple friends from the same foreign country.'
or, as in your specific example...
'When in a foreign country, it's good to have multiple friends from another foreign country.'
The above must be an extremely uncommon thing to say, but that would be the grammar to express that meaning.
Thanks a lot, 2006. Sometimes I think sentences in Thai then translate to English so... that's why it is awkward sometimes. LOL
