Great video! Brought back alotta memories! Thanks!
I was living in Ankara when I was in about the 3 or 4th grade, I think...dad was with Jusmat at the Air base there
I didnt know what Bagalama was so I had to google it......Thats pretty much all that there was on the airwaves back then....The only American radio was "VOA" ( Voice of America)....No TV at all so I was doing alotta reading at an early age.
I do have "Evil Eyes" which we picked up there....I almost would up in a Turkish prison too(just kidding)....As kids we we were always picking the poppies (The REAL THING) and giving them to our moms....We were kidly informed by the cops that it wasnt a good idea to be messing with the flowers.
I'd kinda like to go back and visit now that Im older..I've seen Ephesus, King midas tomb, and the meditteranean sea, among other stuff, But as a grown uo I think I'd appreciate it alot more now. I do remember we had a big water pipe for quite some time but dont know what happened to it,(and no, it was'nt me!)
There used to be a guy in here who was a Turk, and he had a website with alot of cool stuff on it but it was all in Turkish so I could only guess at what the pics said..I cant remember his name, only that it had two parts...Bin Halen, or something like that. Maybe he'll be back one day!..I guess I better "Duro" as its getting late!
