wish me luck...........

I have to learn some Turkish for my trip. I'm a linguistic klutz, so let's just hope I learn enough to get around Istanbul.

Well, it's not really trip time, that's April. But I need to start practicing the Turkish so I'll remember something when I have jet lag.

Istanbul is a great city. My mother is from there and we have a LOT of relatives there(and in other parts of Turkey). I've been there seven(I think it's seven) times.

And I still don't speak much Turkish. I know a few words...

merheba = hello

seni seviyorum = I love you(ok so you probably won't get to know anyone well enough to use that )

evet = yes

yok = no

gunaydin = good morning

iyi aksamlar = good evening

iyi geceler = good night

[insert item here] nekedar = how much is [insert item here] (as in price)

Thanks everyone! I'm currently checking out a program that includes CD's. I need something that gives me the accent. I guess that there are many Turkish accents because it's a pretty big country with many distinct areas. I'll be in Istanbul with at least a day trip to Bursa tentatively planned at this point.
