Jim, Your experiences so mirror what happened to me in Ramallah, Nablus and Hebron. Keep spreading the word.


This is exactly how they are very hospitable and friendly. Full of heart. I return to Turkey as much as I can. My first trip to the country was 30 years ago and I fell in love with Turkey and the Turkish people immediately.

I recently visited Istanbul and feel the same way. Everyone was so kind to us on our trip from free Turkish delight to their patience with us in giving us directions to Hagia Sophia or taking our photo. Turkey will always have a special place in my heart in large part due to the beautiful Turkish people who made our visit so memorable.

I look for the cheapest pastry, point to it, and motion that I want to buy it. The owner asks me in broken English where I am from, I say "America." He touches his heart and gives me extra pastry and refuses to take money for it.
