Hello from Turkey! I’m safe and well.
First, I am fine; thank you for all the emails and calls. I’m in Turkey for the month of October as part of an Eisenhower Fellowship program focused on food, water and production. I left the Capital city of Ankara on Thursday and remain safe. My thoughts go out to all the families who’ve lost in this senseless violence. Above, a photo taken just this week presenting a cobbled together ancient Ankara Castle as inspiration of a society with millenniums of resilience (note the integrated Roman ruins). Stand with Turkey!
