Last night Nina and I went to the Nazar Börek restaurant for the last time and we decided to go crazy and ordered three desserts: baklava with ice cream, apple and cinnamon börek (basically it's an apple pie in phyllo pastry), and another dessert made with grape syrup. After our dessert feast we headed to Fat Boy's Bar to watch the Turkey-Switzerland football game with the locals. One of the guys thought Nina was a good-luck charm because as soon as she went into the washroom, Turkey scored and tied up the game. The guy kept telling Nina to go back into the washroom so Turkey would score again. They eventually did and won the game. The Turkish men in the bar jumped up and were cheering and hugging one another. After the game, Fat Boy's was the place to be for fun and dancing. So it was another late night of having fun with all of our new friends.

Today, we said good-bye to our friends and returned to İstanbul for our last night. We are feeling quite sad to be leaving Turkey. In some ways it feels like we've been here forever but at the same time it flew by. A piece of us will be left in Turkey. It has captured our hearts.
