A couple of weeks ago, my good friend Jane and I went to Pamukkale and Izmir. We had an incredible time exploring more of Turkey! Pamukkale was stunningly beautiful in a completely origional way - I have never seen anything like it! It was created by mineral deposits. Izmir was also incredible. While still a big city, it was much more laid-back and had many less tourists than Istanbul. Hope you enjoy the video!

<p>I am originally from beautiful Boulder, Colorado, but I am currently a junior at the University of Rochester double-majoring in Film and Honors Anthropology. While growing up, I lived in Shanghai for three years, but I have never been to anywhere in the Middle East before - a fact which I am very much looking forward to changing. I love exploring different cultures, making movies, eating delicious food, and being outside. While in Istanbul, I intend to extensively taste-test Turkish food, delve into the city and culture, and learn what it is like to go to a local university. I honestly have no idea what my future job will be, but I am passionate about eliminating institutional discrimination and hope to one day change the world for the better in some way.</p>
