I'd also add that all about me is growth. Construction everywhere, motorways being built or upgraded, new businesses opening, unemployment low, very low by European standards. The other day, in central Turkey, I chatted with a young Frenchman of Turkish origin from Lons Le Saunier, on vacation to visit grandparents, but who within a week of being here was offered a job. He tells me he's probably not going back.
Seing what I see is similar to what I saw in similarly promising and European Spain, 25 years ago. With the exception that the Turks don't have a German central bank to block their development and growth. And, if I were a young man, 25 years ago, I'd probably be learning Turkish, because this place looks like a place to be in many respects.
Hell, I may just learn Turkish at my own (middle) age.
I would be ashamed to admit that I had risen from the ranks. When I rise it will be with the ranks, and not from them
