Merry Christmas from Snowy Ankara!

We're celebrating with a visit to Ataturk's tomb and a marathon of Christmas movies...and last night we went to a Christmas Mass officiated by a Papal Nuncio--the Archbishop who is the Vatican's ambassador to Turkey. Kelly tells me that having an Archbishop officiate over any service is very rare---so that's pretty cool. She had to tell me when to kneel because the last mass I attended was my cousin's wedding--and i'm pretty sure I was eight.

Tomorrow (the 26th) my flight departs Ankara at 10:30 A.M., and after a three hour layover in Frankfurt I'll be on my way to Dulles where I'm scheduled to arrive shortly after eight o'clock.

See you soon!
