After the concert I went to a friend's house for the night, and we all just stayed up late talking, as we always do. We even made popcorn. On the stove! It was quite an adventure. The next morning we met up with the rest of the exchange students once again, then we walked through a parade, representing Rotary and our home lands. We sang songs, chanted "Turkiye," then we got stuck in the middle of a mosh pit where people were pushing and fighting over some free candy. The parade was nice, after the parade wasn't so nice. It was all made up for by a nice dinner at a Rotarian's cafe, and a chance to hang out and talk some more with my friends. At the time, I was kind of disappointed with the weekend because it was a bit stressful and disorganized, but now, in hindsight it wasn't too bad.
