There is a very large population of Turkish people who immigrate to Switzerland and Germany. My two friends Dilek and Ozge are Turkish. Truly kind, awesome and funny ladies. When they talk about Turkey, they both get this very excited look - only the kind of look that someone gets when they truly love their homeland and culture. Both emphatically told me that I should visit Turkey. After their stories, I decided that "should" was quickly becoming "absolutely need to."

It was incredible. No. That's not the right word. There is no word to describe the depth of enchantment that Turkey has. I'm not kidding when I say that I would move there, despite having to be careful about drinking the water. And I'm a bit of a clean freak, so extremely high praise.
