    My stories are always too long icon_wink.gif

    DH was working in Turkey so I went too. It was one of the best periods of my life. We had a great apartment and a cleaning lady. Three doors down was a bakery where I went almost daily to buy Baklava - about a pound a day as I recall. A lady who owned a super restaurant/nightclub there took me under her wing - she had been educated in California and was married to a prominent Turkish singer.

    She took me everywhere - all sorts of restaurants, boutiques (don't get me started on the clothes!) and to the 'real deal' Turkish baths. Many of the restauranteurs knew I didn't speak Turkish so they would take me in to the kitchen, show me what they had and we went from there.

    When DH wasn't working we did all of the touristy things like the Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia. We were also able to visit many other places in Turkey on the weekends and spent some time there at the end of his contract. Loved the people, the food and the clothes. Fabulous fashions stolen directly from Milan. Awesome leather goods and of course we came home with rugs and jewelry. For a year I lived as a lady of leisure and I'm not sure I cooked more than once a week for the whole time. Too many cool places to go.

    I'd go back in an instant!!!!!
