Personal thoughts

It has been 7 days since we arrived Turkey! This country is totally amazing, people are kind, food are delicious, culture are characteristic and scenery are beautiful.

The most impressive thing in Turkey for me is soccer. Many people are very passionate to soccer, there are always stores selling soccer jerseys and equipment beside the road. Turkish soccer league is very successful a and attractive, there are 4 renowned clubs in the league. Galatasaray, Fenerbahçe, Beşiktaş and Trabzonspor. (Beşiktaş has just won over English Classic team Liverpool on Europa League, that night Turkish people were so crazy) The comfortable environment and steady economic conditions attract a lot of high-level international players to come and play here. (Wesley Sneijder, Demba Ba, José Sosa…) They also have a successful national team (Which has Arda Turan, Nuri Şahin and Hakan Çalhanoglu).

The food here is also delicious. Usually they eat lamb and chicken, beef sometimes. It is kind of weird to have a lot of sausage for breakfast, but most of Turkish people do. All the food have high calories, they use a lot of honey while making dessert, and foodstuffs are very cheap compare to U.S, so it will absolutely make you fatter to travel in Turkey for 2 weeks.

Everybody knows that turkey has a long history, that’s why it left a lot of ruins of the old castle and temple. Not only ruins, they also have some tradition skills left, such as manufacturing gem and making carpet. These skills are handed down to the next generation, these intangible cultural heritages will pass and save well.
Turkey is amazing, and I’m looking forward to our trip tomorrow! 🙂
