Another random post, friends, just to say I'm still tickin' here in Turkey. So here's the random thoughts and facts to keep you up to date:
1 - I'm an undult. Yep, that's right, an undult. I found out this fact from a 3 year old I'm spending time with these days; after you are a teenager, you become and undult. Even though she was amazed I wasn't still a teenager - sweet kid:)
2 - Even though it is in the low 20's (70's for you south-folk), it is necessary for me to wear covered shoes and a sweater here when outside. Why? Because I wasn't feeling well last week. And unless I cover my feet and arms (completely and thickly) in public, my hosts are obviously not taking care of me, and it reflects badly on them. So yep, 20+ degrees and my Chacos are at the door as I wear instead... black dress shoes... Some days I just don't feel like myself.
3 - One of my roomates and I went hiking yesterday. Up and over a hill a few minutes from our house you can explore a settlement. A made in stone, ancient ruins settlement. Now there is nothing this old in my country, and if there were, it would be taped off, preserved, and charging admission. Not here - there are SO MANY of these ancient ruins in this country that this one goes unnoticed... it is an entire city... 4 hours there hardly scratched the surface. Amazing...
4 - The computer is still kaiboshed - so much so that it is debatable that is will travel back to North America with me. So this is the still no picture explanation - you just gotta take my word for it.
5 - Have a nice day.
