''Followers of a long tradition'', Experiences from a Training Course in Portugal

The story has been told by Nikos Davvetas. When in 1945 the allied troops freed Buckewald‘s concentration camp, they found a prison committee in existence which actually operated the camp. A council of French, Belgian, Spaniards, Norwegians, Czechoslovaks and Greeks. When this committee dissolved, and everyone pulled its post-war road, gave an oath. That it will not allow Europe to return to the pre-war era, the years of xenophobia, anti-Semitism and poverty. The vision of united Europe was built on this oath.

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.
