    Dear Sarah and William.
    Don’t know if you received my previous message as I am not familiar with how this works, but want you to know we have enjoyed reading your stories and insightful observations. We love the photos you’ve already posted, but would like to see more of you and William in them!
    Best wishes-

    Dear Sarah,
    I came across your blog after looking long and hard for information about the executions in Aleppo. I found your comments really interesting. I live in Damascus and it would be great to have a chat with you one of these days if you come this way. I am not generally a fan of blogs but I found yours full of insights. Keep it going!

    Hi, I came across your blog while doing some research – great stuff. I am also an American and a Fenerbahce fan. I love Istanbul dearly; I’m finishing my Master’s degree at the University of Louisville and plan to move to Istanbul as soon as I finish here.

    In case any of your American visitors ever want to keep up with the local “futbol” scene in Turkiye, I have a website on Fenerbahce in English – http://www.fenerbahceworldwide.blogspot.com and I’m launching a new, bigger site in January.

    Great blog – keep up the good work!

    hi guys,

    seems like you are doing well as nomadic souls here and there. i thought you were returning soon, though.
    When are you coming back to this relatively dull but peaceful little town of ours?
