A Typical Day Teaching in Denizli

I’ve probably already told most people what my life teaching English in Denizli is like, but I thought I’d give a quick summary anyway.

The university I work at is Pamukkale University, just a short walk from where I live. The campus has a nice background, located at the foothills of the mountains.

Semester Break–Home and Istanbul

After having a nice break between semesters at home, I’m back in Turkey and leaving for Denizli tonight. It was to see everyone in VA/DC and Madison and recharge for the rest of my time in Turkey.

Before going home and since coming back, I’ve spent a lot of time in Istanbul. Apart from seeing the major tourist attractions (Aya Sofya, Sultanahmet, etc.), there is so much more to do and see in Istanbul. I stayed on the Asian side of Istanbul (in Kozyata─č─▒), so every day I would have to take the ferry over to the European side to see places. Although the commute over took awhile, I still really enjoyed it. While on the ferry you get nice views of both sides of the city. The Bosphorus is always a little choppy, and is a greenish-blue color, which makes for some nice pictures.
