Have I mentioned how great my students are?

You’ve heard it before and you will have to hear it again. Or, see it. The Turks are generous. I once admired a student’s earrings and she took them off and gave them to me. Seriously! You’ve got to love people who are so generous. Here’s a sample of what I’m talking about.

I mentioned that my students brought me some slippers to give to my friend Kathy when I met up with her in Belgrade. Well, they also gave me some things. Here are the slippers for me--colorful and warm! And the scarf has crochet all around the edge.

Look at that crochet work--have not seen anything like it since my great grandmother.

These are the slippers for Kathy. She sent me a photo of her wearing them in her living room.

 This is not even from a student--just a lovely women who we invited into class for our conversation hour while her son was in another classroom. A scarf, earrings (which I've worn a lot), hand made slippers, socks, a scarf with hand crocheted edges. In the middle is a hand mit to use in the shower. It's almost to lovely to get wet.

Not a gift, but a lovely view of the full moon over the minaret of Sirinevler square.
