Yucky milk

By Anna:

Today was exciting. I had the misfortune of being the first to try the”milk”. I tried the milk, and it tasted like half and half. We then checked the ingredients, and it had salt, fermented milk, and yogurt in it. Unfortunately, mom had also put the milk in the eggs, and we looked it up online and lots of people had said don’t buy the Ayran, milk is called “suk”. My mom decided that salted fermented yogurt-milk ice cream would be a good idea. The rest of us decided not, but Alex said that salted fermented yogurt milk pudding would be a good idea. At least we didn’t have cornflakes and milk for breakfast today, but the eggs were weird, because there was Aryan in them. Now I have a little bit of a stomachache from them.

Today we also went to a castle. It was hot, humid, and windy. Here was some cool stuff like jewels and some cool but odd stuff like a metal arm of John the baptist. There was trees for shade and the wind helped keeping it cool, but it was still warm. The castle was fun, but I was tired by the end, and the audio guide repeated things a billion times. It was still fun, but the food was wierd.

After the castle, we went home, rested, and went to the Blue Mosque. It was a big room with a really low down chandelier, and some huge pillars. It was not as exciting as I thought it would be. After the Blue Mosque, we learned how the trains work. The trains look like Bart trains, and are driven above ground. It was sort of exciting, but I was really tired by then. Next, we had dinner. We ordered way too much food, and we could not eat all of it. During dinner, there was two cats that jumped about four or five feet from a metal box to a tree, and then onto the roof of the building. On the way back down, the cats slid down the metal part of the tree, and jumped off.

    Sounds like the milk has a lot in common with Uncle John–they both suk.

    Poor Anna- milk sounds gross. I’ll be reading your blog wishfully as I am stuck in CA- landlocked 😦 well, not really, as I can almost see the ocean from our deck but your trip seems soooo fun!!! 🙂

  4. You can imagine our surprise when we figured out that Ayran was the NATIONAL DRINK OF TURKEY!
