A visit to Turkey was our best experience we have ever had. When we arrived to school we were surprised by greeting ceremony through the path of rainbow. We enjoyed Janissary Band, folk dancing performance. We learnt a lot about Turkish people culture, their lifestyle and hospitality. We visited a lot of interesting and beautiful places such as Blue Mosque in Istanbul, ceramic workshop in Iznik, Cumalikizik historic village near the Bursa that has been declared national landmark. Also we had a chance to keep a close watch on the art of marbling performance and even have tried it ourselves. We learnt that marbling is the art of creating colorful patterns by sprinkling and brushing color pigments on a pan of oily water and then transforming this pattern to paper. It was amazing!
We were accommodated by very kind, hospitable Turkish families. We are very grateful to them for their tenderness, friendliness, generosity and very delicious food. Their kindness was never ending. There we made a lot of friends from different countries and now we communicate with each other on Facebook.
All in all, we had a most wonderful time and appreciate the arrangements that Turkish team made for us. We came away with the most wonderful impression of Turkey and its people. Thank you for making our trip in Turkey enjoyable one and also for wonderful experience and impresions we got here.
