Day 179 – Following the Gregorian and Julian calendars, Christmas and New Year are celebrated twice in Moldova. While most of the volunteers left to enjoy the winter holidays with their families, I decided to support the headline that appeared on my screen in the morning, “A fifth of Czechs spend their holidays away from home”. And currently, I am in a country where Christmas is not officially celebrated at all.
I am sending you greetings from Istanbul, where instead of Christmas carols I listen to ezan (call for Muslims to pray), where I changed Christmas cookies for baklava and kaymak with honey and where I was eating yesterday (Czechs are celebrating Christmas on 24th December) olives at the same time as a schnitzel.
Because…why not 🙃 ?
Enjoy your time wherever you are!
