Dear Yekta and all teachers from MERSIN UC OCAK ORTAOKULU
Portuguese team wants to thank you very much for the warm welcome and for sharing with us your traditions and culture.
Thanks a lot to Yekta who made a very good program and accompanied us in all activities.
Thanks to the teachers who made the food, the workshops, the concerts and all who share with us these moments. It was a very good experience.
Thanks to Erdal, who picked us up at the airport in the middle of the night. His sympathy and availability made our communication perfect even though we didn’t speak the same language. Thanks to Yekta’s husband who accompanied us to the hotel too.
It was our first time inTurkey. The Turkish people are very friendly, respectful and kind.
Mersin it´s a paradise. I’ll came back with my family one day. For now, I ‘ll put into practice what I have seen and learned.
I brought with me the memories and three musical instruments that I will begin to study and share these experiences with my students: a Kemençe, a Baqlama and a Bendir. I hope that next year I can already play them…
