Alabama in Adana:Day Four and Five (Rain, Rain Go Away)

Apparently, it does rain in Turkey.  And it hasn't stopped for 3 days.  This dramatically reduces our choice of activities in a place with limited choices to begin with.  We have spent much time inside, and Mom has enjoyed spending quality time with William.  They build with legos, play choo choo trains, and sing songs together.  We went to church last night and will be going to dinner in downtown Adana this evening with a friend here. 

And, without further ado, today's installmant of  "Differences between Alabama and Turkey" list:

1.  No weather reports.  No doppler radar.  No Rich Thomas. Our weather report consists ofwaking up, sticking your toe out the door, and dressing accordingly.
2.  Toilets.  The flusher is much different.  And off base, we here that the toilets are "squat only".  Enough said.
3.  Sarah's housekeeper charges 25.00 for 3.5 hours work. WOW!
4.  Animal crackers from Germany are delicious.
5.  Morning shows (Today, Fox and Friends, etc.) come on live at around 2:00 in the afternoon.

Below are a few pictures of our brief, non-rained out time at a park:
