This Internet cafe has an English alphabet keyboard- which basically doubles my typing speed. No more extra "i"s, "g"s, "c"s, or "s"s to navigate. Also the @ key is where I am used to it- so that is nice for logging into emails and Facebook.

I caught a showing of the new Indiana Jones movie last night with some fellow Americans here in Istanbul. It was entertaining, but I agree with my older brother's assessment that it's to the original three what The Phantom Menace was to the original Star Wars Trilogy. I was fascinated to find that the cinematic tradition of the intermission is still alive and well in Turkey, but it is to cater to the smoking habits of the general populace- not to change reels.
