This is another excuse post about why I have not been blogging lately. However, this time the excuse is a bit more valid than the classic "so busy".
I am currently serving in the Turkish army, performing my obligation as a male Turkish citizen. The compulsory service is 21-days long and I am assigned to the 58th Infantry Division in the Southwestern Anatolian town of Burdur.
I am scheduled to be (honorably) discharged on October 22nd. Then it will be back to my adventures in Istanbul, on which I owe a few update posts.
One aspect I have to comment on is the telecommunications facility here, which has exceeded all my expectations. Here's a mug-shot of mine taken at the workstation where I am typing this.
BTW, I suspect its illegal to blog while in the military.
