Day 6 hasn't officially begun yet as we are still in jammies and drinking coffee. Going to do whatever it takes to get dressed and out the door. No excuses.
But before I gear up to go, I must let everyone know that if you enjoy watching cats roaming free, you should come to Istanbul. There are cats everywhere. Every morning when we walk to the bus, we do a campus cat count. Our highest count was 37 cats. There's a trend in the data though because with each successive day, we've counted fewer cats. Yesterday, only 10 cats. So why is the data showing a negative trend? How can we get the cats to increase, rather than decrease? We need these scores to go UP, people. No excuses. We must do whatever it takes.

I'm obsessed with that hedgehog from last night. I don't think it was a long eared hedgehog, though the long ears do live in Turkey. It was some subspecies of middle eastern hedgehog, but I'm not sure which YET. I'll keep working on the ID. I'll do whatever it takes. No excuses. That hedgehog will be known as no other has been known prior to this moment.
I'm not sure what's up today. But I'm going to make the most of my day, doing whatever it takes and not making any excuses. It's probably going to be a museum or two, a walk of some variety, and some tea.
