Last week, Eva and I were in a high school to talk about evs and our contries. Before i went there, i was nervous enough about that, because it was going to be my first spanish presentation. For this, we preapered and wrate something on power point. For me, it took almost 5 days to write something about Turkey. As you know, turkey is so big and it has lots of cities like Spain.
There were about 40 studients in there, they were so interested in Evs, Hungary and Turkey. They even asked some questions about them.
Fistly we talked about European Volunteer Service (Evs). What is Evs? What should they do to be a volunteer? How can they choose a project on website.?
Then we talked about our contries. So now, i also want to share with you some informationes about Turkey. 

Where is Turkey?
Turkey, known officially as the Republic of Turkey, is a Eurasian country located in Western Asia and in East Thrace in Southeastern Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries: Bulgaria  to the northwest; Greece to the west; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, Azerbaijan  (the exclave of Nakhchivan) and Iran to the east; and Iraq and Syria to the southeast. The Mediterranean Sea and Cyprus are to the south; the Aegean Sea to the west; and the Black Sea is to the north. The Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus  and the Dardanelles (which together form the Turkish Straits) demarcate the boundary between East Thrace and Anatolia; they also separate Europe and Asia.

Which language do we speak?
Yes, turkish since republic of turkey was founded, 1923. 

Turkey is a democratic, secular, unitary, constitutional republic with an ancient cultural heritage. 

Do you know Mustafa Kemal Ataturk? 
Atatürk was a military officer during World War I. Following the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in World War I, he led the Turkish national movement in the Turkish War of Independence. Having established a provisional government in Ankara, he defeated the forces sent by the Allies. His military campaigns gained Turkey independence. Atatürk then embarked upon a program of political, economic, and cultural reforms, seeking to transform the former Ottoman Empire into a modern, westernized and secular nation-state. The principles of Atatürk's reforms, upon which modern Turkey was established, are referred to as Kemalism.
Ankara, is the capital of Turkey and the country's second largest city after Istanbul.

Istanbul is the most important city in Turkey even in the world. Because it is one city in the world, between two continents. It is between Asia and Europe. It was always capital in history. it was used as a capital by Byzantium Empire and Ottoman Empire. 
Istanbul anlatilmaz yasanir

Izmir (my hometown)
İzmir is a large metropolis  in the western extremity of Anatolia. The metropolitan area in the entire Izmir Province had a population of 3.35 million as of 2010,  making the city third most populous in Turkey. Izmir metropolitan area extends along the outlying waters of the Gulf of İzmir and inland to the north across Gediz River's delta, to the east along an alluvial plain created by several small streams and to a slightly more rugged terrain in the south. The ancient city was known as Smyrna, and the city was generally referred to as Smyrna in English translation until about 1930.

On October 17, 2008, Turkey was elected as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council.Turkey's membership of the council effectively began on January 1, 2009.  Turkey had previously been a member of the U.N. Security Council in 1951–1952, 1954–1955 and 1961.Turkey began full membership negotiations with the European Union in 2005, having been an associate member of the EEC since 1963.
