Homeward Bound

Alas, our vacation had come to an end and it was time to head home. We shared a very early morning shuttle van with several young men and women from the UK. It was funny to hear them talking about their escapades and adventures in Turkey. We quickly forgot about any misgivings we had about flying Turkish Airways back to JFK, as they were very customer service focused and served two delicious Turkish meals en route. We had ample leg space and even footrests at each seat. Our connection at JFK was on time and several movies later, we were back in SF with a head full of memories, hearts full of love for the Turkish and Greek people, and thousands of photos in our cameras. The cultures we had experienced had enriched our understanding of people on the other side of the world, of countries we read about in magazines and newspapers, and of news stories that often do not do them justice. We appreciated the fact that we have had the opportunity to visit these beautiful countries.
