My first holidays in Turkey

My first holidays in Turkey

Halloween has always, ALWAYS been my favorite holiday.

Maybe it’s the secret actress in me but I love dressing up and getting to be someone else for a night.

Halloween is not really celebrated outside of the US. In fact, it’s pretty much only “celebrated” in other countries where there are concentrations of Americans that will make it happen whether or not it’s recognized.

Luckily for us here, a few establishments and another US expat held Halloween parties, so Wendi, Robin, and I got to dress up a couple times. First, we went to a house party as 3 Bad Ass Biker Babes!


 


 


 


 


Dunno who he was, but he kept asking me about serious, so we got his photo!

 

Then on actual Halloween, we went to a local bar for a little dancing fun. There really aren’t any dance clubs here, so going out dancing is more like finding a space by your table to dance if you want to. And since we bring our friends along, and our friends dance, we danced like we came from out of this world ………until it was time to go get food.


 


 


 

I really like how the colors of the lantern, the flower, and the wine looked together, so here’s a little artsy photo just because.

 


 

In between Halloween outings, there was Republic Day. Adana held its first Oktoberfest at one local “pub”, so of course we had to check that out before going dancing.

 


 


 


 


 




 


 


 


 


 


 

All in all a good week of first holidays here in Turkey. Now to start planning teaching stuff for November. I’m thinking Gingerbread…..
