Antalya, Turkey

arkadaşlar merhaba!

My first postcard from Turkey! Thank you Susi! Great Great Great!

Earlier this year me and my Susischmusi actually were in Antalya! It has been really super, although we didn’t went in main season and so most of the people who stayed there were old people and so every turkish man in the area under 50 thought we were interested in them. (We weren’t, really we wearen’t ^^) But it was so funny talking to the people there, they were so kind! And about 80% were able to talk german. My friend really fell in love with the turkish language, we’ll see if she is gonna leran it one day.
I put you some pictures I took in Antalya. Hope you like them!

I send love!

p.s.: For all you Germans:  Sagt mal ganz oft hintereinander das Wort Moschee. Hihi, ich bin kindisch ich weiß ^^
