Today the amazing Skittles landed in Istanbul the biggest city in Turkey.
They visited a certain farm and they were taught how to prepare rice at harvest time. The rice was put on a big stone for pounding to remove the rice from the pod and this job is always done by the gentlemen, while the Turkish ladies do the sorting and cleaning of the rice and prepare it for their families for meal time. This was great for learning more about the world we live in.
