Let’s Talk Turkey!

As we are travelling to Turkey this year, our friend Eric arranged for an invitation to an evening hosted by the Intercultural Dialogue Institute-“Step by Step Towards Global Peace”.  BURC was founded by Turkish-Canadians of Calgary in 2006.  It is a non-profit organization that endeavours to promote respect and mutual understanding among cultures.   It was wonderful to meet and talk to people about the culture and hear from various speakers from our community (Calgary).  We were treated to a delicious    meal, including Baklava for dessert, and turkish coffee that the ladies prepared in the traditional method.   It was a stellar prelude to our travels.
