Only 24 more days until I leave for Turkey. In that time I have to finish my last two weeks of my internship, make several more batches of pesto from my basil plants, pack, shop for a few more things, bake pies for our pie booth at the county fair, have a going away party with my college friends, see my high school friends, unpack and repack, look over the layouts of the airports I’ll be travelling through so I can get around quicker and not miss my flights, and finally go on a short vacation with my family the week that I leave.
WOW, I don’t know how I’m going to squeeze this all in. But, tonight I am making a blueberry kuchen with one of my best friends. This recipe is older than I am and super delicious. My family has been making it for years and I always look forward to it during the summer. I’m hoping to take lots of pictures and make it my first true food post on my blog. Hopefully I will get an idea of whether or not I should continue trying to post about the amazing food that I will soon be eating.
On another note, I posted in the Koc University (from here on out referred to as KU) Exchange Student Facebook page and asked if there were any other engineering majors in the group. I got one response from a guy in Electrical Engr. I am hoping that I have class with at least a couple exchange students so I can get some various views on engineering outside the U.S.
I can’t wait to actually start posting from Turkey!
