A little bit of Turkey

A little bit of Turkey

I have been able to get around on 3 different modes of public transportation plus the ever useful taxi. I have my new awesome PT card and a few routes down now. I miss my scooter more than I can articulate here, but I’m looking in to it already. I like getting myself around.

But here are a few photos of the places I have gotten to this last 10 days.

Apparently everyone, children included eat lunch on these nice table cloths, family style, at my new school. Glad I don’t have to do the laundry.

Just happened to get off the metro as the sun was going behind the mosque! Lucky beautiful shot.

My first Pretty Woman shopping spree, got 4 new outfits and 3 pairs of shoes!

A Catholic church we were taken to as part of a small tour of the city.

And then a trip to the mosque!

Wasn’t quite sure if I had it on correctly, but they let me in, so I must have. No shoes, head covered, long skirt, check. TOTALLY worth it. Stunning inside.

Amazing architecture

A staircase up to one of the towers

Friends make everything better

A few stickers from the stationary shop for helping to teach emotions….. I thought they were pretty cute.

One more week before students begin school.

I miss a lot of people, but mostly my family Sven, Mike, Cori, David, Jean, and Sheri. I love my friends, even though I may not call or write nearly as much as I should, you are in my thoughts daily. Sincerely you are.

I found a good German app so I’m studying that in the evenings and trying to pick up a little Turkish as I go throughout my days…..  Off to another day in Turkey!!

    The pictures are beautiful… you with a mantilla (head covering) is a bit of a stretch, but quite charming. Enjoy your time there exploring and learning. Hello to Wendy.

    Love You
