Being a Foreign Student in Istanbul, Turkey…

Being a student in a foreign country can sometimes be difficult: you need to learn a foreign language, you need to adapt to a new culture, make a new friends, etc. However, being a student in a foreign country, which is pretty different to your native country can also be fun and very educational experience. I especially like this experience when I have an opportunity to meet students from many different countries and when I learn about their culture. Today it was one of these days: The Foreign Students’ in Turkey festival, where students from all around the world presented their countries and a small part of their rich culture. Unfortunately there was no stand presenting Slovenia (I guess I am almost the only Slovenian student here). Here are some photos from the event Bi Dünya Öğrenci Türkiye’de, which took place in Istanbul (and also in other cities in Turkey), from May 10th-12th 2014:
