Some of you might not know this, but my very smart and witty wife is writing a blog of our experiences in Turkey. It’s called A Year Without Bacon: Our Expat Life in Turkey. She is a professor of Sociology at Michigan State University who was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to teach and conduct research in Istanbul. For a different perspective, below is a selection of some of her posts about her experiences here in Turkey. If you’re not following her take on our adventures, you should. Enjoy.
I Go to Asia to Bake a Cake, and Have My First Istanbul Car Wreck – The things a mother will do for her children.
Our Trip to the British Consulate – Sometimes we get invited to parties.
The Awesome Place We Will Never Go to Again – How we found an indoor playground.
Everything Is Paper, and Paper Is Everything – Her experiences getting a Residence Permit.
“It Could Happen to You!” Empathy and Scorn in Human Trafficking – The reason we’re here is so she can do research on human trafficking.
P.S. As we say in Chicago, if you can’t help your family, who can you help?
P.P.S. We have yet to eat bacon since we arrived in Turkey.
