Saturdays in Istanbul are lively and vibrant, as people bring out food, clothing, and trinkets to sell in the markets. We met a guy selling cheese who happened to be from the same background as Coşkun and he gave us a bunch of free cheese samples (cheese in Istanbul is amazing, by the way) and a pickle each. Afterward, we went to have breakfast in a cafe, and Coşkun taught us some more Turkish words (Teşekkürler means thanks). Coşkun and I went to register me for the Sunday fun run while Natalie went to meet another friend at the airport.

“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” ~Isaiah 41:28
