“Nice to MEAT you” : My first week in Turkey

26 Oct

One week ago, I made the journey here to Erzurum, Turkey.  The jet lag has worn off and I am safely in my apartment.  This week happens to be a significant holiday for the religious Muslim people.

Yesterday was the sacrificing of the animals and today, the meat was delivered to people as gifts.  Not being much of a meat eater myself, the others here were happy to have it.  The butcher downstairs grounded the meat and we made meatballs.  My Japanese friend Erica made the rice.  I must say, the meat was the tastiest I have ever had!

LOVE, PEACE AND COMPASSION to all human beings!
