Greetings from Turkey….

Tonight at the Persian Dinner Nasrine & I made, OK Nasrine made dinner, I made Salad & Yogurt Dip with the help of Gunay who cut vegies…it was a great meal…thank you Nasrine…

Hi all, I am in Turkey, have been here for about 5 days now & yes Ginny I am having a blast…everyone is awesome & they are all now addicted to glass beads…my student Elif said to me today that she no longer wants to be a Ceramics students at the Mimar Sinan University, she is here with her friends Aybuke & Gozde on scholarship as a part of their degree in Ceramics & Glass Design taking my Glass Bead making class…I also have a student from Iran named Nasrine (makes the best beads) who saw my beads on line last year & waited to take my class this year…also I had two other students for the first 3 day class, my new boyfriend Altan & his assistant in real life Gulsen…

Last but not least my assistant & favorite bead maker friend Gunay has been doing the very hard job of translating from English to Turkish…I teach in English to Gunay, she translates to Turkish, then I teach in Persian to Nasrine, at first it was odd, but now we all speak English, Turkish & Persian, sort of…its kind of a mad house, but a good one…we have discovered that Persian & Turkish have many words in common, so we have started a list on the board in class…We laugh so much that the office people & hot shop people walk by our class wondering what kind of party is going on inside…Next week I will have 15 people total in class including Gunay & myself, most everyone will be speaking Turkish, it will be an interesting 3 day class I am sure of it….


First night here, out to dinner with my friends Pinar Hakim & Gunay & my new friend (red head)Gaye.
