Ben Turkum!

I’ve started with a new Turkish language CD set, on my neeeeew iPod (thanks, Tee!), and so far it’s great. I can say “I’m American.” “I don’t know Turkish, I know English.” (As if that wasn’t obvious from previous sentence.) and “Where is Topkapi Palace?” Only I keep forgetting “palace,” so it’s more like “Where is Topkapi palaschmache? <trailing off>” I was successful in teaching Kerem how to say “Ben Turkum!” (I’m Turkish!) We added in a little raise-fist-in-the-air hand motion, and he looks like he should be marching in a cultural day parade or cheering on Fenerbahce Football Club.
