    Most importantly, I want to thank one man- Dr. Milton Wheeler, a history professor at William Carey University. Dr. Wheeler has been a passionate teacher of history for 50 years and is truly a walking encyclopedia when it comes to European travel, partly because he has led 96 tours to this continent but mainly due to his passion for the area and it's historical significance.

    Beginning in February, I started having weekly lunch meetings with Dr. Wheeler at our restaurants. I traded soup for knowledge. The information he offered was worth 1,000 guidebooks and gallons of gumbo. He helps pilot our movements, even while we are here.
    With such a hectic week, I'd like to focus on two events- the dinners in Olympia and Istanbul.
    It was Dr. Wheeler who recommended the Hotel Europa in Olympia.
