Weekly Pieces

So it seems I won’t be asked to be the color man on the NFL’s new version of Monday Night Football, which is launching on ESPN this week …I have had my bags packed just in case they called at the last minute. But, being early on Sunday morning here in Asia, we have just passed the physics of global travel possibilities for me to arrive by kickoff on Monday.
We have had a good week of planning and preparation for our Eastern Turkey outing which is just a few weeks away. We are still trying to make the aerial photographs work in creating our wall map of the Silk Road..(that could drive me to drinking). And we have been engaged almost every evening with visiting Turks.
Tomorrow evening our closest Turkish friends come to visit. These were the folks that helped us out so much with the remodel of the apartment.
Lamb, chicken, mecimek corba, zeytin, bulgar pilaf, chickpea stew, and…the list goes on…will be the starters for our evening. When this crowd gets together…the neighbors know it.
So in celebration of the completion of (most) of the work…we offer a few pictures of our humble home.
Does it say.."Home" to you?

Ceilings are a Bit Low

Ok....That's not really our living room. It's the Sultan's Summer Palace in Istanbul.
But you know our motto: Once the door of our home closes, no matter where we are , we are the happiest family in the world. Even in this palace...things couldn't have been any happier than the Steward's home.
