Yeah, that whole "putting-the-day-before-the-month" thing set the stage for one really confusing conversation on my trip to Turkey a couple years ago. I'd already filled out my traveler's cheque (don't EVER do that!) and the guy couldn't take it with the date like i'd written it. But i'm happy to say it all worked out, and i'm the proud owner of a CD of Turkish music and a touristy book on Antakya.
