Today is for Fırat Taydaş - Happy birthday!
Fırat works at Starbucks in Seattle with my good friend Tim Waters.
Happy birthday Fırat!
By the way Fırat, two weeks ago today I reached the river that bears your name (Fırat Nehir = Euphrates River).
Another "by the way" -- this is a photo of the Bayrak Olayı (Flag Incident) monument in Kahramanmaraş.
