    It’s so sad seeing Ataturk’s legacy being traduced in this manner – who knows, perhaps Erdogan’s next move is to rename the airport after himself?

    I sort of agree with you regarding the length of countries’ official names, although there certainly are exceptions. But, offhand, I can’t think of any proper democracy which includes the title democratic in its official name. It’s rather like people, when saying something, adding the expression “to be honest” – always the sign of a lie coming!

    Star now has massive carriers in CAI and IST. I am sure not the strength they wanted to put forward. 🙁 I hope this settles soon.

    I have been of the opinion that Erdogan was going to make a move to gather more power. There are media pundits who are supposing that this “coup” was all made up. Which considering what has happened in Turkey before, isn’t far-fetched. We could be watching the beginning of a dictatorship.

    Open Question:

    Better to not visit Turkey since that somewhat supports Erdogan’s actions, or…
    Better to visit Turkey and stay/eat at local places to a) support proletariat Turks, and b) get better deals because tourism is waaay down?

    We’re trying to decide!
