Turkey Goes Wild

Despair Before The Tide Turns

Euro 2008 has been a fabulous fillip for rousing the Turks and sending them to the streets full of national pride. With Turkey's National Futbol team in the semi-finals the streets of Istanbul are in full party mode.
The recent match against Croatia on Friday night was looking pretty bad for Turkey until the last 5 minutes of the game when they made an amazing comeback. We have watched the last few matches with our Istanbul-family and had as much fun watching them as watching the game.

Turks Celebrate on the Streets

We are still in limbo with our Resident Visas...but the good news is that we were able to get the Police to return our passports to us today. Our current Visas expire in 4 days so we will be on the road to Greece until next Friday.

Sorry your visa situation is so tight.

And, oops, did my people just beat your people with a 3:2? Turkey played a great game, though.

Well, I had to tarry a bit before responding here C. Here is a link that lets you know how I really feel:)

Thanks for the other kind words though...those were the ones that didn't mention Turkey's loss.
