If anyone asks,
Part of my undergraduate degree was spent focusing on the Ottoman empire. I spent 3 years pouring over texts on the country, reading things about the diaspora and the culture of these people. I was ensnared - and still continue to be.
I'm sure that you've already seen this, but there is this amazing video of Turkey going around and winning all these awards. I wanted to share it with you so you can see the beauty of this place.
Enjoy the film, and promise yourself that you'll visit Turkey one day!
