"How is the food?" an EVS experience in Turkey vol 6

What everybody asks, after they know you live in Turkey is “ How is the food?”. I can talk forever about the food here, dreamily, excitedly and some times a little disturbed.

My favorite thing about living here is the variety of choices for fast food, traditional fast food, other than burgers fried potatoes and onion rings. The fast food changes from city to city, so i am going to talk about Ankara with some choice extras that deserve to be tasted.

"The Mosaic of different personalities that was created will never be forgotten", Youth Exchange in Ukraine

Lviv, Ukraine. During a cold and humid September, no one could have told us that a previously unknown city to us, would have created so many memories and feelings for us. Describing how remarkable and unprecedented this experience was would require a whole book of noting all the small details that made it so. But since there is space limit, I will only say this. The things we unconsciously and consciously learned during 2 weeks of constant exchange of opinions and knowledge would have required 2 whole years of dedication and research for someone to learn.

In the beginning it was just an idea, in the end it was the best experience ever.

Sitting on my PC as every day, doing nothing important and then the post of United Societies of Balkans came in front of my eyes. Call for participants for a project about extremism and xenophobia in Vienna. First thought: Hmm maybe. Second: Why not? Third: Do the application NOW. And I did it, and I was selected and I went there and YES it was the best experience of my life.
