Rocks and books
Rocks and books
I spend most of my time reading nowdays. On Sunday I went down, literally next to the see, sat on some huge rocks and just spent some pretty relaxing hours there. I’m reading Flowers for Algernon now, It is really good. I don’t really want to write about the book because it has nothing to do with my trip. But reading helps a lot when someone feels lonely as I do sometimes.
In school the students have a lot of exams during this part of the year, therefore we have a bunch of freetime. We do some exercises for our lessons for Poli, but it is hard without the teachers in some cases.
Today I came across another providence in the case of Turkish warm welcoming. I had to wait to Laura and her host, Beste in front of their house and all of a sudden a complete stranger shouted at me from the other side of street : -Edöm, come, otur-otur! (otur=have a seat, sit down). She is Bestes father’s friend, a women in her late fourties. The point is that she runs a drugstore there. I went in, she offered me coffe and when I said, no thanks, I don’t have that much time, she gave me an Armani parfume as a gift. It costs 60 liras (around 6200 HUF) it just blew my mind. It was a bit shocking to be honest. I coud not really say anything.
The sad thing about this week is that we had to postpone the rehearsel. Our flute player has a son who got dangerously ill, he is in hospital now in Samsun, which is 150 km away. Also, the drummer is not free this week. We will have the first meeting/rehearsel on Sunday.
