October 15, 2005

We are in Puerto Vallarta and she is in Istanbul. Simple statement but still a little hard to accept. When she first mentioned being an exchange student, all sorts of thoughts and feelings came tumbling out. What a great experience! You will learn so much. There is so much to see in this big, wide world and you will get to start now. Where will you go? You will learn a new language. Then...wait a minute! You can't leave, you are only 16!

Now a few months later, she writes from Turkey and she is still smiling. "Awesome" is a word that is frequently heard. Turkish is easy. Her emails are full of stories and funny and we are proud of her. She sounds happy. She said "I did a cartwheel on the Bosphorus Bridge".
