I never imagined spending two weeks in Turkey. However, I went through with the decision and so far Turkey has been nothing but a wonderful adventure. This is a summer study tour that takes place in Istanbul, Turkey and is run by UNR Professor Berch Berberoglu. I am currently two days into the program and I’m enjoying every bit that this city and country has to offer.
So far I have able to experience the culture and environment of Istanbul as well as the surrounding cities. Most importantly I have been able to experience the cuisine. Today for instance, I got to eat a Turkish pizza. It’s different than what we would consider pizza back home, but it was still delicious. Another thing we did today was visit another continent. We hopped on a boat and crossed the Black sea into Asia. All in all this experience so far has taught me so much, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the trip has in store for me.
