  • The Reality: things like: Weren't you afraid? Terrorism? Wow, you came home with two hands and two feet!, What about those Turkish Prisons?, Did you get sick?

  • I was not afraid

  • There is terrorism everywhere and Turkey ranks very low on the “Hit List”.

  • I did come home with both hands and both feet. These punishments do notand never did happen in Turkey.

  • I did not get sick once, except for the occasional hangover!

  • The movie, “Midnight Express” was a dramatization about the incarceration of Billy Hayes who was caught at Istanbul Airport trying to smuggle several kilos of hash back home to America. The story is not completely accurate and there were NO Turkish actors who played any role in the movie !!!

  • TURKISH PEOPLE HATE HOW THIS MOVIE WRONGLY CHARICTERIZES THEIR PEOPLE.


What we took away from turkey
What we took away from Turkey things like: Weren't you afraid? Terrorism? Wow, you came home with two hands and two feet!, What about those Turkish Prisons?, Did you get sick?

  • Turkey is a strong ally of ours. The Turkish people love, admire and respect us. They want us to strengthen there relationship with us.

  • Turkish people are very hospitable, warm and friendly.

  • Turkey is an excellent destination for tourism. Known as the “Cradle of Civilization” Turkey has over 8000 years of recorded history.

  • Turkey has a diverse flavor of cities and terrain throughout the country. From the seas to the mountains.


  • The food is great and healthy! things like: Weren't you afraid? Terrorism? Wow, you came home with two hands and two feet!, What about those Turkish Prisons?, Did you get sick?

  • They have a strong education system and strong family values.

  • Turkey wants more business opportunities and partnerships with America’s businesses.

  • Turkish parents do not want their children watching violent and sexual movies, wherever they are made.

  • They are willing to support us in our war on terrorism as they have supported us in the Korean War, Cold War and the Gulf War. However they want our economic support along the way and afterwards. There support of us during the Gulf War caused major economic problems in Eastern Turkey which in part lead to economic problems throughout the country. They feel we did not support them after we won the war.


  • Support Rotary International Group Study Exchange things like: Weren't you afraid? Terrorism? Wow, you came home with two hands and two feet!, What about those Turkish Prisons?, Did you get sick?

  • Support, visit and do business with one of our closest alleys - Turkey!!!
