Friday night, after muscle-wrenching work picking up furniture from Devrim and Efkan, Dragos and I went to Adana. At the trainee house were several new trainees from around the world, including, Grace (USA), Adriano (Italy) and Surya (USA).
That evening was an AIESEC dinner at Kazancilar Restaurant in Adana’s old centre. Several alumni attended, including, Arda, Duygu and Bugra, all of whom I have not seen for a long time. Arda, in fact, matched me to my original traineeship back in 2001. Suvi (Finland) and Sam (Hong Kong) were among more new trainees.
After dinner many of us headed to Cazara, the place I saw in New Years Eve 2004. At Cazara were two more old AIESEC friends, Anil (Arda’s brother) and Huseyin.
I really enjoyed meeting the new trainees and seeing old faces.
