58 out of 410 days: Language Test Failure

[Such a sad little photo! I’ll do better with my next from-the-phone post.]
So standing in line at the consulate waiting to pick up our visas and a man starts talking to me in Turkish. Did I use the very lesson I learned this morning? Did I say “Türkçe bilmiyorum”? Nope. I stood there like a deer in headlights and waited for him to switch to English. Oh well.

AND I just learned SDA’s companion visa hasn’t yet been approved. Just my research visa. This will not be the last trip here…
