İncirlik Air Base is
a joint Turkish-American military
facility near Adana,
at the eastern end of Turkey's Mediterranean
Even though I've been there, I can't
tell you much about it. My stay was
a short one and happened a long time
ago (during the late 1960s).
İncirlik (EEN-jeer-leek, "fig
orchard") airbase has been there
for a long time, having been a major
Turkish-US facility during the Cold
the 1960s and presumably even the 1950s.
The climate is
pretty nice in the winter, but in summer
it resembles nearby Adana,
which is to say it's like Mississippi
at its worst.
If you're going to İncirlik, presumably
you'll need no itinerary planning assistance
from me. Uncle Sam is your travel agent.
You may want to learn a few words
though. See my Turkish
Language Guide and 100
Most Useful Words in Turkish™ to get started.
