True, it is a country, which folks in the west call "Turkey" That's the same word that's used for a type of bird which is popularly eaten at Xmas, Thanksgiving, etc. But what do people in Turkey (the country) call the bird that's called "turkey"? Answer: "The American Bird"! Seriously, I'm not making this up. (Purists may note that The American Bird is not exactly a turkey, but there are similarities).

If you'd like to visit Turkey and see how the country is coping with becoming a modern progressive place (and joining Europe) while still keeping the best of its exotic traditional cultural aspects, there are some handy travel contacts here too.

If you've got some Turkish souvenirs with "Constantinople" on them, they are of antiquity value, as the city is now called Istanbul.
