Our Night Out in Town :)

imageimageimageYesterday was our most fun day yet in Turkey! After working hard teaching from 8 to 5, we went to Taksim Square for dinner. Taksim Square is one of the major tourist attraction sites in the European part of Istanbul and is filled with restaurants, shops, and hotels and has the Monument of the Republic. We had delicious  traditional Turkish dinner and dessert at Mado restaurant, where I discovered my new favorite dish: yoghurt kebab. Yummmm! We are definitely going back!

Checking Out Our Classrooms

Figuring out how to play podcasts on the projector in one of the classrooms we're using.

We got access to the school’s facilities the day before our classes started. It was great being able to tour the school and the surrounding areas in Istanbul briefly. It was a nice break from dealing with some problems with our housing situation. (Five girls sharing one not so functional bathroom doesn’t usually equate with smooth sailing) But at the end of the day, we all went out to eat a delicious dinner! All in all, a successful day.
