Turkey in winter it is 4 degrees Celsius which is 39 degrees Fahrenheit. And in summer 27 Celsius which is 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Turkeys winters are a bit more warmer then the USA and their summers are a bit more colder then  the USA.

Weather

Here is a list of 4 different foods I might be eatings in Turkey.

  1. Menemen-looks like sorta like through-up but is a traditional breakfast item. It is like scrambled eggs with a little bit of sauteed vegetables served hot with bread dip, spread,  or scoop.
  2. Mantl-it looks like pasta but is singular in its texture and taste.Small lamb dumplings or small beef dumplings are fried or boil also served with yogurt or butter. Often accompanied with a range of spices.

Foods

  1. Baklava-It looks sorta moldy to me but the green stuff on top is actually  grounded  pistachios.Sweet, singular and could be eaten fresh. But never better then in turkey because it is a nutty, syrupy pastry dessert.
  2. Mozaik pasta-this is a chocolate cake made from chocolate sauce and broken biscuits. Most people can whip up a no bake version in no time.

Foods

There are a ton of different houses in Turkey and some might be your dream house and some may not. You could live in a apartment or you could live in a ordinary house. Honestly it depends on the money you have to afford a house. And as you see houses in turkey are not as different as in USA.

Homes

And that is what my life as a 10 year old in Turkey would be like.And those are the differences that will make my life different in the USA.
