I visited eastern Turkey 12 years ago.
With a group of people in a small bus, I saw many places.
For three days we stayed in the beautiful old city of Amasya.
This city is close to the Black Sea.
My friend and I walked all over the city.
Shop windows were full of delicious food.
We tasted Turkish ice cream and other sweet treats.
People smiled when we tried to speak Turkish.
