Now for some randomness and my last blog on Istanbul. Booooooooooo, but yaaaaaaay so I can begin with my other blogs. Anyway back to randomness I know I told you that I got a teaching job here in Istanbul, well the name of the school was called british english, here is a picture of me and some of my students.
But I don’t think that I mentioned that I was also teaching belly dancing 2 times a week as well. I know its kind of funny an american girl teaching belly dancing in turkey right? Well there are several reason why I wanted to teach. One was because I wanted to brush up on my turkish belly dancing and I found it ridiculously expensive. The second was because when I actually took a class, the teachers went very good teachers and they didn’t properly break down the steps, they would just have the students copy what they were doing, and the students looked so lost. The third was because there were barely any english belly dance teacher and I knew that there were people who wanted to learn that were not turkish. So I pretty much taught because I thought that there were shitty teachers and none that spoke english, so I decided to teach at an affordable price that students, travels and anybody else could afford. I taught germans, french, turkish, chinese, japanese and aussies, along with teaching I also danced at a birthday party as well.
So here are some random photos I took while walking the streets of Istanbul, hope you enjoy!
