Last week, some friends and I went on a cruise around the Mediterranean for fall break. It was a blast; a great way to travel and experience different cultures in the world. My favorite place we went to was Turkey. I never had any ambition to go to Turkey but I am glad that I did. Coming to Florence was my first time experiencing a new culture that was so different from America, and Turkey was just another level on top of that. I only had a day to explore Kusadasi, Turkey, but in the time I was there I saw a completely different part of the world I have never seen before. Here are some pictures from our journey:
Every country likes Coca Cola!
The Kusadasi "Grand Bazaar". A line of many Turkish shops.
Climbing up the steep streets of Turkey.
Some street cats picking through a dumpster.

We hiked to the highest point we could easily find, and the view was extremely rewarding especially when we got to hear the Muslim prayer time song echo through the city.
