He never anticipated the result – comment after comment, some short, some a little bitter, some longer and insightful. The Third Culture Kids know who they are, and are eager to share their insights and experiences – but mostly with other Third Culture Kids, who understand. Others . . . don’t get it. This weekend, we went to a wonderful Third Culture Kids wedding. It…

Spate of deaths tied to Islamic practice among Turks, Arabs Police in Berlin arrested three Muslim brothers in what appears to be the latest in a series of so-called honor killings. The slaying of a 23-year-old Turkish woman, Hatun Surucu, who died of multiple bullet wounds to the head and chest, bears all the marks of an honor killing, a police psychologist said, according to BBC News.

Antalya Antalya, the Turkish Riviera is the most stunning part of Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. It is typical of Turkey, a thriving modern city, with a historic heart in the centre of Kaleii, within the old city walls.
