|Feeling full after lunch!|
The lessons are around 2 hours long and then we had free time and the promised surprise was revealed.(Safa promised us a surprise yesterday for around 6.30pm) The surprise was that Kiymet, our Monday to Saturday cook, had invited us all round to have dinner in a real Turkish Families house, her own. Traditionally, in Turkey, when invited round someones house, you bring a small gift with you - we gave her a big box of cookies from all of us.
At around 6.20pm we all piled into two taxi's and Safa's car. The drive didn't take long but when we got out, the view down the street was truly beautiful!

Tomorrow breakfast is at 11am again, and then we are leaving at 4pm to watch/film/take notes on the Opening Ceremony of the Terracotta Symposium. After that we are meeting with the artists and other participants, but not the public, for a cocktail and to celebrate the opening. We have been told to dress up a little so I might wear my black, white and grey maxi dress that hardly ever gets used because I never have anything posh enough to wear it to :) - the other girls are also thinking of wearing dresses, so should be okay :)
