Can't believe it's been nearly a week since we said goodbye to you in Istanbul! Bill and I had a wonderful three weeks in Turkey and thank you very much for your fine service to us and the group. We appreciate your accommodation to our various interest and flexibility in scheduling.  Hope you are enjoying some relaxing time with your family, as I know being a tour guide is exhausting work requiring infinite patience, energy and affability. This third trip of ours to Turkey helped us consolidate our bits of knowledge from previous trips and increase our understanding of Turkish history and culture. (Neolithic! Hittite! Greek! Roman! Byzantine! Seljuk! Ottoman! Indigenous Turks! just to name a few.  I am still dreaming of all that delectable Turkish food and, of course, freshly squeezed pomegranate juice.  Please think about a visit to us on Cape Cod some time. Until the next time,  Amanda M.
