Journey to Istanbul

I and the other students of Eurasia studies are getting ready for our field trip. Like true vikings we are heading to the historical metropol of Istanbul to get information and to get new cultural experiences. It’s our first stop before we go further west to the Caucasus. 

On the 12th we’ll gather up with our course director and one of our teachers, Ove Eriksson, to have a look around in the city. The days after we will be attending meetings with different organizations, for example IOM – International Organization for Migration.

My flight leavs tomorrow morning and like all days before a big journey, for me at least, it’s notnig special. I guess it’s because it’s to big and to exciting to imagine (activists, plov, hookas, gigantic mountains!). I guess my stomac will start to tingle as the flight takes ground in Istanbul.
