This afternoon I took a bus to Kizilay and met up with a friend from church. We then got on the metro and went to Yenimahalle (means the “new” neighborhood) to get together with a Turkish girl (Ipek). We had Turkish coffee, tea, and some pastries at her house. It was a nice time of fellowship! The Turkish girl actually knows English, so it was nice getting to talk with her! When I arrived home, I had an email saying that she added me on facebook J. She said that she enjoyed meeting me, and was “glad that she has a new friend”.
It is hard to believe I have been over here 52 days. It seems just like yesterday that I came over here! There have been slow times, but for the most part the time has gone by pretty fast. I will be just getting ready to land in the States four weeks from today!
