Turkey is Typing…

This week, we are going to visit Turkish bloggers in alphabetical order! Are you excited!

Amerikan Turk talks about his racing (bicycle) this week. He spent Father's Day in a local bike race and was planning on participating in another on this Sunday, although his plans might have been foiled by a twisted ankle at work. Amerikan Turk also posts about the Turkish bloggers yahoo group, who this week had some “heated discussions” on whether or not to post in Turkish or English, amoung other things. Either way, whatever language, it is an excellent group to visit.

Athanasia's Daily, who I don't cover too often, wrote about the universal problems of having summer birthdays. Happy Birthday Burcu!

I am only going to post one item from Erkan's Field Diary this week….because I feel that the item deserves special consideration….he has his First Academic Publication out!

Gulay, Galatasaray and the Dogs post another little jab at fellow futbol blogger Oz Kanka and lists how some of the international players from Turkish soccer teams are doing in the World Cup.

Mavi Boncuk gives us more Turkish history with a bio on Turkish feminist Nezihe Muhittin, information on Ottoman civil law, and a primer on the Millet system and the guilds during the Ottoman period.

Oz Kanka is still giving blow by blow World Cup reporting for the Round Ball in Ankara.

Talk Turkey has been talking about Metro-logic and More Metro-logic…and no, I am not going to tell you what it is, you have to read it for yourself. (wink)

Well that's the week, not everyone was covered so I apologize for leaving some of the regulars out. Have a good one!
