Tales of moonlit wanderings and travels: I am a semi-nomadic writer currently based in Istanbul -but am always most comfortable running with the djinns and wolves. Desert obsessed with a penchant for Sufi Poetry, this blog is a documentation of my weird and wayward, postmodern-dervish ways.

So the school I'm teaching at here in Mersin, Turkey doesn't have enough art supplies, I am going crazy because the other Turkish teachers are not very helpful and they seem to expect me to be able to make amazing things out of thin air, I don't have any prep time whatsoever, its bloody freaking hot outside and exhausting working 9 hours a day for about 3 dollars an hour no less, not to mention the fact I have a terrible toothache all of a sudden...but these KIDS, these kids...make it all worth it.
"miss julia, miss julia...you are most beautiful teacher!"
