Tim and Nancy Dial Photos from Peace Corps (T-8)
We were trained at Princeton and Robert College in
Istanbul. (Summer of 1965). We were first in Silifke, on the Mediterranean
coast and then in Ankara. During the summer of 1966 we were with a
children's camp in Istanbul.

Campers, summer camp Istanbul, 1966
The summer camp of 1966 was girls and boys.
The food pictured above was our lunch everyday. Remember the Turkish bread
of those days? It was great for a day and then it got hard as a brick.
I loved the salami and white cheese.
