DEB TALKS TURKEY.
When you first set foot in Turkey, you know you will return. So our return to Anatolia was well researched and planned, would not retrace any path taken previously, but instead would venture into what we referred to as The Wild Wild East; from Ankara and Trabzon to the borders of Georgia and Armenia, Iran and Iraq and Syria. From the Kaçkar Mountains in the north east to Mt Ararat in the south east, from Van Gölü to the Mesopotanian Plateau, the Fertile Cresent, Cradle of Civilisation and the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. We visited archaeological sites that dated back 12,000 years , followed the ancient Silk Road for days and stayed in the most chic boutique hotels with wifi. Hamams and nargilas, pul biber and baklava, dondermasi and gozlęmes, we had the full Turkish experience.
Don’t know your nargila’s from your pul biber? How about your dondermasi from your gozleme?
Well come along and be enlightened as Deb takes us on this magical cultural tour.
Find out why this is the Mona Lisa of mosaics (and it’s not because you can’t tell if she’s smiling or not).
Where : Senior Citizens, Meeting Room, Civic Centre Complex, Hovell Street, Wodonga. Visitors are always welcome at meetings and supper is served afterwards
