There are many reasons for me to love Turkey. The main reason is the people and the traditions. 

The other day, I watched some movies taken when my wife´s brother got married. The music, dancing, the henna night (before the bride is to leave her parents´ home). Yüksek yüksek tepelere was sung with a lot of feeling... that always stings my heart. 

Another movie was of me asking my father-in-law for permission to marry his daughter. I don´t know about the rest of you, but I love the respect that shows, and the value people (of course it differs from one family to another, from one area to another) put in the family and the people who have brought up their daughter. 

The historical sites are wonderful too. Sure, we have viking graves here, and some fortifications and memories from the war with Denmark, but nothing, really nothing, compared to what Turkey has. 

And of course the weather... it´s June now. It´s 7 degrees here. I refuse to take on a thicker jacket... IT´S JUNE!!! SUMMER!!!

25 days left, then I come to join you
