|the joy of finishing|
I love Istanbul but I hate teaching here. It is not all the students' fault.I had a genuinely sweet goodbye from my group class last night but in general the nature of my school here has been to throw you from one situation to another so you never really connect with anyone and I have hated this. And I have felt my passion as a teacher die more each passing month.
***So I finished my last class and went straight to my favorite old mans' pub where I ate cheese and drank raki and felt liberated somehow.
