Talking to Turkish students

Wow, Sabanci Universitesi is far, 50 kms from downtown Istanbul! The talk with the students (grad and undergrad) was fun, though. They laughed blushing when I described my generation in Mexico when we were about 14, extra-hungry for everything, from real democracy to active sexual freedom. Their hoya (professor), a wonderful woman who also happens to be my dear friend, reminded me with a smile that “this is a Muslim country” and probably the sexual part was a little bit off-side. It all was less optimistic when we got to the most recent period, this Mexican annus horribilis that is turning into a double annus horribilis.
