Hi!I'm finished work for the day (it's about 7:00 p.m. here). I had a funny experience on the way home in the train. I was sitting across from a Turkish couple who were talking, and all of a sudden the guy next to me said, in German, "I can understand your language, but I can't speak it." Everybody started talking, and it turns out the guy sitting next to me was a Kurdish Iraqi. The other man turned out to be a Turkish Kurd, and they went on and on about Saddam, Kurdistan, Turkey,Syria, Iran, the U.S., etc.. When the Iraqi said he was glad Saddam was gone, but thought the U.S. was going to try to conquer the rest of the Middle East in the next ten years because "they (the countries) all have dictators!", the Turks kept looking at me, because they recognized my accent, whereas the Iraqi didn't. I tried to explain to him that Bush might not be re-elected, and even if he was it would only be for another four years, and Congress had a big say, but I don't think he understood what I meant. The people in the Middle East REALLY need to learn about democracy. It was an interesting trip.
