How sad to see the news of late from Turkey. And yet also inspiring, it is heartening to see people rise up and say “No, this is not what we want. We want and demand something different.” Mind you that is the history of Turkey. Forceful, powerful, inspiring leaders that do great things and then forget who they are and how they got to be where they are and become part of the problem. And good for the Turks that they consistently do not put up with it. I am not in any way trying to simplify the complicated social and political history of Turkey but you have to admire a people that don’t take anything lying down.

Once again the trip was not enough and we have promised to visit again. If I could become a cobble in a street of Istanbul I would be happy.
