Istanbul Diary 2

I’m having great time here in Istanbul and therefore time flies. It has been almost 8 weeks! I love this city as I mentioned in my first diary. I started March with a meeting with Langston Hues, do you know him? It’s a photographer from Detroit. Than we had a trip to Cappadocia, which is a historical region in Central Anatolia. On friday we went to Cappadocia till monday morning. It was an amazing trip and we had a lot of fun there, you can see the pictures. On monday morning we were back in Istanbul and back to school. I’m having bussy days, first school and after school going out with friends, our weekends are fully booked with activities. Exploring Istanbul. I bought a lot of books but I don’t have time to read them, shame on me! It’s so nice here and it is always so crowded. Day and night. Next week my mid-term exams will start, so I have to start studying. Wish me good luck with my exams. Hopefully I will get an A+ for every single exam. :)

Ik heb hier in Istanbul geweldige dagen en daarom vliegt de tijd voorbij. Ik ben hier al bijna 8 weken! Ik vind Istanbul helemaal geweldig maar dat had ik in mijn eerste diary ook al gezegd. Ik begon maart met een fotoshoot met Langston Hues, kennen jullie hem? Het is een fotograaf uit Detroit. Daarna hadden we een trip naar Cappadocië, wat een historische gebied in Centraal Anatolië is. Vrijdag vertrokken we naar Cappadocië tot maandagochtend. Het was een geweldige trip en we hadden veel lol daar. Maandagochtend waren we weer terug in Istanbul en terug op school. Ik heb het hier erg druk, mijn dag begint met school en daarna heb ik telkens plannen met vrienden, elke keer verschillende activiteiten. Exploring Istanbul. Ik heb hier veel boeken gekocht maar geen tijd gehad om ze te lezen, shame on me! Het is hier een en al geweldig, ook altijd erg druk. Werkelijk dag en nacht druk. Volgende week beginnen mijn mid-term tentamens, dat betekend dus dat ik moet beginnen met leren. Wens me veel succes. Hopelijk haal ik een A+ voor elke vak. :)

Lots of love..

    Ik kijk altijd Turkse series, en natuurlijk is bijna alles gefilmd in Instanbul, waardoor ik er echt graag een keer naartoe wil! Lijkt me een prachtige stad!
