More about the children of Turkey
When visiting a country, there is always the temptation to romantisize the experience, to exaggerate the positive and ignore the negative. But there is something about the children of Turkey that continues to fascinate me. Even in the poorest of villages or slums of the city, they are always ready to meet you with their wonderful spontaneity. Just look at the picture of the teens below: there is no sulleness, no "whatever" attitude, only a willingness to meet a stranger with a refreshing openess and spontaneity.
