Today, crossing at an Istanbul crosswalk, using my fellow pedestrians as human shields, I thought could be a very long time before we have the chance for such an adventure.
Anyway, Addy my dear. I’ve been having a great time–meeting kind people and practicing my Turkish. Do you still remember the word for butterfly? Kelebek! I knew you’d remember.
Here are a few things I thought you might like to see.
