Turkish Nights

Sorry I haven't been here in a while. How have you been? We've been busy, with Europe and all. Also, Steve's parents were here and Saturday was, ahem, my birthday.

Anyway, we left off in Turkey.
After our dinner, it was time to dessert hunt. Here you can see Steve looking painfully at the honey-dripping baklava.

I'm not huge into dessert. Did you know Turkish Delight is just gummy candy with powdered sugar on top?
I thought it was gross. But Steve was mainlining the stuff.

In the end, we had popcorn and soda for dinner because we went to a movie!

Ah, we hadn't been in a movie theater in months! The only movie that was in English (with Turkish subtitles) was Spiderman 3, but we didn't care.

We were just so happy to be in a movie theater!

We're lucky we didn't care, because Spiderman 3 sucked. Big time.
Also, there is an intermission in Turkish movie theaters. Not at an appropriate time, just whenever. This one happened in the middle of someone's dialogue. Someone's painfully acted, poorly written dialogue.
