• Many people I talked to upon my return
from Turkey said things like: Weren't
you afraid? Terrorism? Wow, you came
home with two hands and two feet!,
What about those Turkish Prisons?, Did
you get sick?
Midnight Express (The Movie)
• The Reality:
• I was not afraid
• There is terrorism everywhere and Turkey ranks very low
on the “Hit List”.
• I did come home with both hands and both feet. These
punishments do not and never did happen in Turkey.
• I did not get sick once, except for the occasional
hangover!
• The movie, “Midnight Express” was a dramatization about
the incarceration of Billy Hayes who was caught at
Istanbul Airport trying to smuggle several kilos of hash
back home to America. The story is not completely
accurate and there were NO Turkish actors who played
any role in the movie !!!
• TURKISH PEOPLE HATE HOW THIS MOVIE WRONGLY
CHARICTERIZES THEIR PEOPLE.
What we took away from Turkey
• Turkey is a strong ally of ours. The Turkish people love,
admire and respect us. They want us to strengthen there
relationship with us.
• Turkish people are very hospitable, warm and friendly.
• Turkey is an excellent destination for tourism. Known as the
“Cradle of Civilization” Turkey has over 8000 years of
recorded history.
• Turkey has a diverse flavor of cities and terrain throughout
the country. From the seas to the mountains.
• The food is great and healthy!
• They have a strong education system and strong family
values.
• Turkey wants more business opportunities and
partnerships with America’s businesses.
• Turkish parents do not want their children watching
violent and sexual movies, wherever they are made.
• They are willing to support us in our war on terrorism as
they have supported us in the Korean War, Cold War
and the Gulf War. However they want our economic
support along the way and afterwards. There support of
us during the Gulf War caused major economic problems
in Eastern Turkey which in part lead to economic
problems throughout the country. They feel we did not
support them after we won the war.
• Support Rotary International
Group Study Exchange
• Support, visit and do
business with one of our
closest alleys - Turkey!!!
