Here you can see my husband Günel and me with our daughter Gün's children, Lisha and Jamie, and me, in Scotland. The photo was taken in Glasgow in 2006. In 1989, my daughter Gün graduated from the English Language and Literature Department of the Bogazici University. She went for her master's degree to the University of Edinburgh, and then for her doctor's degree to the University of Glasgow. In 1994, she married Stewart Carruth, a housing expert. They had a son, Jamie, in 2000, and a daughter, Lisha, in 2003. Every year, we visit our children in the USA and Scotland; they, in turn, often come to visit us in Turkey. Sometimes we all get together at my daughter's home in Scotland. And they come from Scotland to visit us in Polonezköy at least twice a year.
