After a 4am flight out of Iraq we arrived in Istanbul sometime around 11. I don’t remember much of it because I passed out in every mode of transportation, but we’re here! Most of the crew slept through the afternoon but we made it out to the Bosphorous Strait for a little swimming/feet dipping.
Turkey feels like a safe haven of comfort that I never want to leave. I didn’t realize how “uncomfortable” I was in Iraq until I got here. Not that I was ever unhappy in Kurdistan, there’s just something ultra familiar about Turkey and I feel so safe and happy.
Still miss Iraq, just a little.
