The second thing that I experienced was having to put on plastic over my shoes. As we entered the hospital, they have bins at the door, and we were required to cover our shoes! I thought it was pretty interesting.
The third thing was something I did not really experience, but something that I saw. I know all of you are aware of the swine flu. Well, over her people have been going crazy. I guess a lot of Turks are fearful of things in general, so everyone is pretty scared of H1N1. I have been starting to see people wearing masks! It is not an everyday sight, so it catches my eye when I see it.
We scrimmaged the junior boy’s basketball team last night. It wasn’t really much of a game. It was nice to be able to play rather than practice (it has been a long week of practice)!!
Today, we had two practices again! This evening, I had a parent of one of the younger girls (on a different team) tell me in broken English that her daughter has enjoyed watching me play. She said she wants to have me over to the house for dinner sometime…pretty awesome!! She went on to say that her daughter shows her pictures of me and my sisters (on Facebook )! I always make it a point to talk to the younger girls, at least say hi, and try to give them high fives. They usually practice right before our evening practice.
Well, I am going to read some and then hit the sack! The Lady Flames are getting ready to play in about an hour, so I think I am going to try to listen in J Normally I am not able to listen to the games, because it is 2:00 in the morning over here, but since the game is at 4:00 I will be able to!
Have a great weekend!!
