I am leaving today at about 3:45 from Fort Wayne, Indiana to Istanbul Turkey. I would think this will be a 180 degree change in cultures. Although Turkey is part of NATO, but is also more or less Muslim. Fort Wayne is know as the City of Churches. (Christian)

Got up very early. 3:20 am.

I wake up early, but today was very early. I guess I am ready to go and have a lot to accomplish before I leave.

The temporary job I had in the USA is still taxing my energies. Still some lose strings, and I will have to call home from Turkey to guarantee that some of the jobs are accomplished.
