Another week, and another set of opportunities to forge friendships and make memories to last a lifetime.
While we continue to prepare our deliverables in anticipation of our final week here, we still find new experiences every day. Since our last update, we’ve our greater team was invited to participate in a quiz night at the British embassy, where we were lucky enough to have won first place.
We’ve become familiar faces in the neighborhood in which we’re working, and have been fortunate to make the acquaintance of many in the area whom we have come to recognize, as well; among these are the mechanics who work below our client’s office, and whom we hear nearly every day singing playing Turkish music, and who just as often invite us to join them.
In what has been a highlight of our time here, all of us on the 2015 Service Corps team returned to the Ankara UNHCR office, and worked with another group of volunteers to distribute lunch to the refugees there awaiting services.
If a picture says a thousand words, we hope that a video might better still convey some of our feelings – enjoy!
