It Must be OK
Well, I was wondering how I would feel having to leave Turkey. This trip to Italy made me realize it will be OK. There are other places in the world. Tuscany is a perfect green place frozen in time, with no trash on city streets and lovely flowers on every windowsill. Istanbul was muggy and grey, and the people stared at me, a blond woman traveling alone. I had to keep my eyes down. Soon it will be hot, but wearing summer clothes will cause more problems than it’s worth. I am getting ready to leave.
Although… today a friend finally let me in to her life. Trust here sometimes must be earned with blood.
