Thanks Kari and take care of that finger
Turkey KPWT 2008
I am now in Turkey for the 4th stop in the KPWT. It’s my first time here in Istanbul and I can only tell you that I am really surprised how nice it is here. They told me that it will be really hot and no wind before I came, but it’s been strong wind, light wind, no wind, rain, sun, hot, cold, flat water and waves.
You can find everything in Istanbul. It’s a mix between the old mosques and the new fashion building. You can drink your morning coffee in Starbucks or in an old Turkey restaurant. If you want to go shopping, there are a lot of places to go. There are markets where you can find the turkish cloths and souvenirs, or you can go to one of the big super markets where you can find all the top brand like Dior, Gucci, Brunotti, ozone
We are staying at Burc beach, 45 min from Istanbul by car. It’s a big sandy beach with many restaurants and a kite school. We finished the single and the double elimination in freestyle. It was 12 girls who signed up and it’s been many good heats. I was really happy with my single and got 3rd. But again like I did in Greece my finger broke again, and got really big.
In the double elimination I was against Kristin Boese. I made a bad heat and lost. I was mad about my heat, for some minutes , but I know I have too do my best if I want to win against here. I got 4th here and I am really happy about this position too. I was not lucky with my finger again (the one I broke in Greece) I will now rest my finger and don’t do freestyle before its 100%
