Turkey Day in Turkey

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days of the year. Every year I visit my grandparents, aunt, and cousins in Rhode Island. We eat delicious food, play cards, and spend as much time with each other as possible, because we know we won’t see each other until next year.

This year was different. This year, I was alone in a foreign country while my family celebrated without me. Except that I wasn’t alone. This year I was with my new family: the Duke in Istanbul family. We took a cooking class with a famous Turkish chef and feasted on turkey and Turkish side dishes and for a short while I even forgot that I wasn’t at home. Nothing can beat mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce, but this definitely came close.
