I'm writing a job recommendation letter for a friend of mine. There's a personal part about our friendship. I would like to know what could be improved. We're not native english speakers and I don't know if this stack exchange is suited for this. Here's the paragraph:
Me and John Doe are friends for more than 10 years. We lived a lot of life experiences together... We already were coworkers, friends of fun, of trouble, of adventures and trip partners. I really trust him. John likes to taste new foods, always open to meet new friends and new places, his desire to discover this world its a nice thing to see. He likes to walk, to drive and loves the sunshine. John is very practical, determined and positive person. These were the first 10 years of friendship... And i know we will have a lot of 10 more.
