At the Palm Resort in Pamukkale.
Fun fact: Cell phones in Turkey are really, really expensive. The cheapest you'll find is at least 300 lira.

I had a fabulous
weekend. Here's what I did:
- Went to a danc
e club to celebrate the end of final exams with AIESECers. It was a lot of fun, and I was happy to find that I like Turkish music.
- Arrived in Pamukkale to one of the prettiest hotels I've seen.
- Swam in a therma
l pool and used the mineral-enriched mud as a beautifier. =)
- Took a Turkish bath.
- Saw a bellydancing show! It was just one girl and it wasn't as authentic as I would've liked, but still, it was pretty cool.
- While the parents enjoyed their high school reunion, us ki
ds hung out in our hotel room, drinking Efes and talking all night.
The best part, though, was when around 1 am, my host mom and Julia's host mom came to our room, pulled some Efes they smuggled into the ho
tel (the hotel's alcohol was really expensive) out of their purses, and hung out with us. They're awesome. =)
- Walked around a huge ancient city, Hierapolis.
- Saw Pamukkale and the white travertines, which also held thermal water. It was really beautiful. And it was my host family's first time seeing it too, so that was fun. Tugce and I climbed
around in them, enjoying the warm water.
- Went to a Turkish village. Everything I ate after breakfast on Sunday was grown and made by my host father's uncle. It was absolutely delicious. Later, I also got to taste freshly m
ilked milk, warm and with sugar. It was also really good.

Ok, that was supposed to be my condensed version, but oh well. =) Sadly, I leave at the end of this week. =( But I got the week off from the schools, so I'll get to just hang out and have fun.
