Thanksgiving 2102

Ankara.

It was fabulous!

Below are my photos of what happens when you share a beloved American holiday with 20 others, mostly Turks, and most of whom lived in the U.S. at some point.  They get it.  They know how to enjoy it.

This year, Baris & I agree that we are very thankful for our wonderful friends.  We are both lucky and are grateful that many of them could join us last evening.  We also specifically thank that group for the appetizers, side dishes & desserts, for the wine, flowers & gifts, and for an evening full of laughter and happiness.

Happy Thanksgiving & Happy Teachers’ Day!!
