I Know.....It has been a while....but for anyone who still cares :), here is an update on Meran:
He called last Thurday morning. At that time he was on the border of Syria and Iraq, close to the Kurdish city of Mosul. He said that he was doing great and was busy with his translating job (he is translating Kudish/English and visa versa).
As for the kids and I....
We might be traveling over to Kurdistan in the Fall. Meran and I have discussed it and thought it might work out better for us all that way. Right now I go with the intention of just visiting for a couple months....If I like it I will stay until Meran gets done.
Also I am looking into getting some kind of job over there.
