The Best is Yet to Come

Most likely you are aware of the situation in Turkey. You also most likely are not 100% sure what it is that is going on but don't worry hardly anyone is sure, and it is a total and sad mess.
These past few days people from all of the world contacted us through various places to check up on us and we are thankful for that. We are fine around here, sad and unsure about the future but fine.
The government and the men on the top are playing some extremely dangerous games with the people as pawns and them watching safely from their ivory towers.
Hopefully brighter days are coming, but for now it seems we are going to a very dark place.

But I will now continue on a brighter side as there is so much bad things going on, not only here but practically all over the world,
Just before shit hit the fan, actually the day of the fake coup I went to pick up our brand new car, yaaay! I had to pick the papers and plates from Muğla.
It is the first time that we are owners of a not second hand one, it smells new and we are making its history, which is a nice feeling. As I picked it up right before the mess we haven't really enjoyed it yet but it is nice.

This lab that you are seeing is where my plates were made :) I had to pick them up myself as foreigners get different plates which doesn't go automatically like normal plates. The manner was pretty old school and cute so I took some pictures.

Then with the plates I went to another town, Denizli, a bus drive from Muğla of 2,5 hours. It was a bit tiring all by all but I had a good deal on this car so it was worth the extra journey.
Just the night before I went we made a brand new evil eye charm with hamsa's and lots of eyes for lots of protection. I put it on at the dealers before driving it for the first time :)

We still need to sell our old car but that will be fine. Hopefully with my next blog post there will be some more good news, especially about the way things are going around here politically would be nice if there would be a turn to a better direction.
Stay safe and in peace everyone.
