Before my trip to Turkey last month, the day before leaving actually, I had the honor of meeting two bloggers for coffee in the morning. They were passing through Providence on their way to Boston's Logan Airport and contacted me in advance. I won't reveal their identities, but I will say this much: I wasn't planning on meeting two bloggers on that day, just one.. and his spouse. Turns out that my blog friend was married to the author of another blog in my Blogroll. Astonishing. Meeting both of them was one thing, discovering they are married was quite another.
Then in Turkey, I tried to arrange for a meeting with Hans, Erkan and Idil, but plans fell through at the last minute, with Hans falling ill, Idil blowing me off.. er, going to work, and Erkan attending a conference which I could not get to. I did get to speak with each of them on the phone, however.. and that was a treat, though way short of a consolation. Maybe next time!
