We're back.

Well we are home. Back in Turkey. Exhausted. But we had a great time visiting our friends. An amazing time. So much fun. So much driving. So much seeing. Yesterday before we left I realized something. I took lots of pictures while I was in France. Pictures of...

Door knockers,

Stones in the road,


Bamboo in the park,

Mentanna being silly,

Brian being silly,


And so much more.

Then I realized that I didn't have any pictures of me and Mentanna together. So despite the fact that neither one of us had showered we participated in a photo shoot. Brian took the camera and the following silliness ensued. As you can tell from the blurriness of some of these pictures there was much laughter. So for today...as I try to recover from my post-trip exhaustion I will leave you with these.

Was it cold there or is Brian going all hip-hop on us?

I love the door knocker and the stones in the road... kind of makes me think about my life at the moment.

Looks like you had a great time!

And pictures with laughter are far more valuable than pictures with showers!

I love the door knocker! It's a little creepy, but very charming.

Looks like you had a great time! I hope you are feeling refreshed.

If you pan down slowly on that photo of Brian, like just to the waist, it totally looks like he's a hip monk, just hangin' out at the monastery.

headless mom - thanks! it was so fun!

charlie girl - well he didn't bring anything with long sleeves so he had to buy that sweatshirt. we couldn't decide if it was more hip hop or monk.
