If I haven't stressed it enough in my blogs, I.love.Turkey. The food and the country. It's one of my favorite places I've visited, possibly because it was the first really

Albany – On Tuesday, December 11th,

recognition reception at the Albany Visitors’ Center, 25 Quackenbush
Square in downtown Albany. The event is free and open to the public and
will run from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. As part of the evening’s program, three
area educators will present on their experience
this past summer when they spent two-weeks in Turkey exploring the
country, its culture, history and cuisine. This program was made
possible through a grant from the Turkish Cultural Foundation in
