There weren't too many spills. Here's my advice for anyone who does this. Don't make too much unleavened bread. It's not very good. My kids didn't like it and neither did I. Just make enough to taste it. Then you can understand the difficulty the people must have had in those times. Imagine, no good bread. Sadness! Also, don't expect to have a clean blanket when you're done. And whatever you do, promise yourself that you won't yell at your kids for any reason. It really ruins the whole experience. I yelled. I felt bad. And now I have to wait a whole year to do it again and do it right, without the yelling. But I'm sure none of you yell at your kids.
So that's our Easter kick-off for the week. I have more planned for Saturday and Sunday. We'll see if I can do that without yelling.
Meanwhile we've been enjoying the weather. We took a ferryboat across the Bosphorus yesterday and saw dolphins again. I feel pretty lucky. I saw three last time I took a ferry. Daddy.
Shermy in all his cheesiness.The tulips are in full bloom here in Istanbul. We hurried down to Goztepe Park this evening but got there after sundown. Therefore, no good pictures. But at least you can tell they're pretty flowers. After walking around in the park in the dark we stopped in at our favorite Cafe. Kahve Dunyasi. They serve lots of coffee and have all kinds of chocolate. We always order hot chocolate. It's not the greatest. What's great is the chocolate spoons they serve with the hot chocolate. You can just stir that dark chocolate spoon right into your hot chocolate until it disappears, however, my kids like to smear the spoon all over their faces and hands.
They also serve chocolate rocks. Our friend Lesa provided the transportation. Thanks Lesa!
