Back Where I Belong

Well, I finally made it back out to the Middle East... haha. And I am truly happy to be here. Life jumped right back into being chaotic and confusing, but I have become accustomed to it. It is interesting watching a new lady who has just arrived with me... I realize how much I have grown over the past semester as I see her deal with the inconsistencies of life and everything technological or planned. It still surprises her.

As you can see from my last post (if it shows up for you... it seems some people have problems... I don't know) that I spent some time in Istanbul... that was because of some "political problems" in the place I was trying to get to. Again, I don't know why. These things are rarely explained. But, getting there was surely the most amazing part of the trip. I arrived in Istanbul with a total of $13.04. The Visa cost $20. Mmmmhhmmm. God did amazing work with that one.

Blessings to you all out in Blog world...

The Hagia Sophia

I spent some time in Istanbul on my way over this time... If it weren't for the fact that I wanted to be somewhere else and if it weren't for the incredibly annoying Turkish men I would have had a magnificent time there. But as it was, I only had just a good time. =)
