Yesterday after dinner,
we were invited to a "Turkish party".
It was great and we could see "Turkish style" everywhere.
Most of the music were Turkish popular songs,
and the strong tempo were suitable for dancing.
Of course there was alcohol in the party,
and I drank "tequila" for my first time.
There is a special way to drink it.
We smeared some salt around the cups,
and than laped the salt before drink it.
Because the alcohol is very strong,
we ate a piece of lemon after drink it.
After three cups of tequila, two fires came on my cheeks,

Her name is "Gozde", comes from Turkey.
I like her a lot.
Today, she made "Turkish Coffee" to us.
The most difference of Turkish Coffee is they put coffee and suger in "cold" water,
and heat until boil.
The things to heat and drink coffee are very special and delicated,
and they look like something from the ancient museum.
Actually, I'm not a coffee lover, but it is good to drink.
After we drunk the coffee,
the left-coffee in the bottom of cups could make fortunetelling.
And Guzde knews how to do it.
At first, she told me to made a wish, and waited untill the cup became cold.
Then, she looked at the left-coffee of my cup,

from China( or Japen), but we could notice how much people like it here.
They made lanterns by themselves, put candles in, and let it went by water.
They offered Chinese words, such as "Hope", "Love", "Living Spirit", and
you could write them on lanterns.
It holded in a beautiful cenemery that had a lake and looked like a forest.
When sunset, people put their lanterns in the water. Hundreds and thouthands
of lanterns flow on the lake, and it was really awesome. Because we have smilliar
festival in Taiwan, we didn't feel surpeiced. However, the cenemery there
was big and beautiful, and I liked the view so much.

Successful hit-on means you talk to her/him then you can pick her/him out, so there goes so many "pick-up lines". And they're very funny.
One of them is to say, "Your father must be a thief!?"
"why?" The person get confused because she/he doesn't know why you say so.
"Because he stole the star and put on in your eyes."
That is the pick-out line.
And another one, "Excuse me, do you have 50 cents?"
"Because I promised my mother I'll call her if I meet the girl I dream for."
Haha, this one is great.

Italy, and many of them wore blue soccer T-shirt, took Italian flags, and
had paintings on their cheeks.
It was so crowded in Hanover St., the main street in Little Italy. We looked
for a big sreen to watch the game but we failed, so we watched it on
the open window of the bar. The people here were unbelievable excited, and
they were hailing and screaming every time when Italy was shooting. This
atmospere infected everyone.
When the key point that Italy kited shootout ball, everyone shouted "Italia!
