Day 3, about the Bhosphorus ferry:

Alp is sufficiently versed in KS: Americans to start by saying it was a three-hour tour, which everyone got.

What is "KS: Americans"? I don't think you mean "Kill Shot: Americans", but maybe you do. Either way, I don't understand the point of a 2-hour ferry trip being described as a three-hour trip. :)

KS is "Knowledge Skill" - originally from Champions, but a lot of other tabletops in my social circle use the phrase.

"A three hour tour" is a Gilligan's Island reference, and is generally taken to mean "This boat trip is about to go Horribly Awry."

Aha! Okay, that makes a lot more sense now, as I've never watched an episode of Gilligan's Island. :)

No you have to spend some hard earned EPs buying up your KS:Americans skill.

Yeah, you just failed your shibboleth for being an American of our generation. :)

Why the devil would I want to do that? :)

Washington got to be one of the Founding Fathers - maybe the biggest - but here there's just Ataturk. The military leadership of Washington, the idealism of Jefferson, the damn-it-all-we-are-going-to-do-this-thing of Adams... can you tell most of my own history is 1776?

"Sit Down, Mustafa" just doesn't scan properly.

Plus, who would sing it?

I must protest -- there are six cats in your five-cat picture. :)

Oops, fixed. :)

You know, I *remembered* taking the picture with six cats, but then captioning them, only could count five, so I decided there must have been one that went behind the bench just before I took the picture. I think I was glossing over the grey one by the curb.

Of course black is Jerry and purple is you!

Well, once you realize there are two of us talking, it's easy to guess. If you're wondering "why the heck does she keep switching colors?" is might not be as clear.
