LIVING IN TURKEY/BUILDING JUPITERS - ANECDOTES

Americans living outside the United States in countries which have laws foreign to ours, customs we're not all totally aware of, cultures that demand certain behaviors, can be difficult for many...if not outright dangerous to the individual's well being. Most Americans try very hard to adapt to and understand the ways of the host countries in which we live and work. Every now and then things just don't go right. Ignorance of a host country's law is no excuse, and unlike in America when a foreign visitor runs amok of the law and are shown much leniency, Americans in foreign countries are usually not shown any favoritism if they are involved in pure accidents, break the law, or ignore a host country's customs. In March of 2010 Ron Robertson, having read on-line the account of my experiences in Turkey during the Jupiter Missile years, emailed me with anecdotes to two of the stories I'd related...with interesting details.
