General note

The short course went really well in Izmir even though the hotel she booked said they were full; she's getting irritated at her counterpart for wasting working time; complains that the people she works with are lazy and incompetent; Worked with a Turkish poultryman who studied in the US on a poultry dressing and cooking demonstration, but "he absolutely knows less than nothing"; she wants to write about the poultry man to a publication when she gets out of foreign service; there was flash flooding in Ankara while she was away and has a big mess to fix; barnacles form on her best kettles if she leaves it full of water; the Asian Flu has been going around and hit her interpreter; Her counterpart won't interpret because her status is too high; Did not serve breakfast to the King of Afghanistan but was a special guest for lunch and was able to meet the king through an interpreter as well as the President of Turkey; she talks about how Turkish people know to use hot suds when washing dishes but never practice it; "If I ever see a Turk washing a dish in hot suds I'll know we have one of the world's problems licked--namely that they not only know something- they will do it."
