    It's great to keep up with your happenings via your blog. This one was a delight to read - although I'm sorry to hear about the reprimand you received at the table in California.

    Hope you and Charlie can make it out to Turkey while I am still here. I've been spending spring break in Istanbul and trying a variety of restaurants recommended in the book "Istanbul Eats." I had a copy sent to you and Charlie but the online shop I'd ordered it from looked a bit dubious. Tell me, did you guys ever get the book? If not, I'll send another one as I'm not sure if it's available outside of Turkey yet.

    Hope you guys are well.
