I've said this so often but it is painful to have such a good relationship with one's children and have them so far away that visits are so infrequent. Nonetheless, we had a wonderful time...discounting the freezing of our asses off. It was really cold and never got above the low 40's the three days we were there.

(Don't think it was cold?)

In order below Chicken Doner Sandwich, Pide (kind of a meat, eggplant thing), and Turkish pizza with doner in it
Mandatory Art Shots

"Don't you worry. We are experts."
"Agh, Don't leave me now."
