Our First Day!

Today was a huge success!

Our entire team has been together in Turkey for just over 24 hours and we have already finished our first day of teaching.  There were a few hiccups, but they have all been dealt with smoothly and efficiently by both our team, and our Turkish hosts from the University of Istanbul.

As great as teaching is, I can’t believe how much I’ve learned.  I can now speak about 6 Turkish words (although I can’t spell any yet), eaten traditional Turkish foods and breakfasts, and have already met with a doctor from the OB/GYN department associated with the school who has volunteered to allow me to learn from him and shadow him when we have time.

I can tell this is the start of something great.
