Shoutout to Turkey for being awesome.

Turkish Airlines provides a free hotel room to anyone with a layover over 10 hours, and the Turkish eVisa application took less than 5 minutes and only cost $20.70. Seriously world, take a cue from Turkey.

Turkish food day! I already made şakşuka, the stuffed peppers are almost ready, the mücver is frying right now, and I'm getting the cacık ready for later! So good.

I think you should consider going to Turkey. On the other hand, you should choose more liberal cities of Turkey rather than more conservative ones. The most liberal city so far is İzmir.

<B Izmir! I just got to see two coworkers from when I worked there last week. I can't believe this summer will be 10 years since that job!
