Issiz Adam

No crazy adventures lately... just a general enjoyment of life and people and spring... so I am posting a series of short entries with some pictures of that sentiment. This particular entry is about an evening when female Turkish and international teachers got together for a night of wine and a Turkish chic flick. The film was beautiful. Issiz Adam (2008) (loosley translated: Empty Man) is set in Istanbul, and will quickly dispel the belief about Muslims and Turks being conservative or Middleasternized. It is a story of those people whose lives have been isolated by modern lifestyles. Also included: Food, beautiful Turkish ballads from the 70s, and Turkish mothers. So if you see it in the Foreign Film section, I highly recommend it. It was also really nice to spend time with the Turkish teachers. Kivanc provided a beautiful spread of food.

This is nice, something I wish we did more of at our school. Our staff is just so big, and the local hires have their own lives, children, etc., we just don´t seem to mix very often. Nice work ladies--making it happen!
