I’ve been back from Berlin for about two weeks now (pictures and posts on that still to come) and have officially been in Turkey three months! Three months an the packages are still coming. I’m amazed at not only how much people are willing to spend to send stuff (some postage stamps read $70), but the time and thought they put into these packages. As egotistical as this may sound, it’s always nice to have a reminder that people think of you when you’re not around. I’m getting packages faster than I can send stuff back to the States (the post office is often closed by the time I get home from work), but I will just have to try harder.
It’s become an odd tradition now to catalog these packages. So here is what we have so far:
Thank you to everyone who has sent a letter, card, or package. Though the candy and presents are awesome, when you’re miles away from home, it truly is the thought that counts. (With that being said, we now have enough Oreos to last us the year.)
