Turkey after bombings

by Jazzflute

Go to Turkey! I was in Turkey in late September, and it is a *great* country to travel in. Not going to Turkey out of security concerns is sort of like avoiding NY or DC after the bombings on 9/11. Turkish people are very friendly to tourists and you shouldn't worry about your security. In my time travelling around Turkey (3 weeks) I didn't meet anyone with any sort of horror stories. The bombings which took place in Turkey recently could happen as easily here as in Turkey, no?

I was there 3 days

Yes it is an islamic country, but is actually quite on the liberal side, so there may be a chance that there is some gay nightlife in istanbul. There is absolutely no problem whatsover with being American there- people are smart enough to separate out politics from the indivdual. Locals- turkish and kurdish, were exceedingly friendly and welcoming to me as an american.
