Thanksgiving idiocy and ovenproof bags

We purchased a precooked turkey for Thanksgiving from Zabar's. We are getting ready to heat it up. The turkey is wrapped tightly in an open weave netting type bag which is tied shut. It is then has a clear plastic bag over it. The instructions say: Do not remove from oven proof bag. We are several idiots in disagreement about whether the plastic bag is the oven proof bag. Is there someone here (preferable who has ordered from Zabar's) who can clarify?

Kosher substitute for salt pork

Kosher substitute for salt pork? We want to make an America's Test Kichen recipe for Thanksgiving turkey. It calls for salt pork to be laid along the back of the turkey during the first part of the roasting process (with the breast-side down), like so. ATK says this is called "barding" the turkey, which they say makes the bird "self-basting." [more inside]

Europe in late October?

Due to very busy schedules, the earliest time we can take a vacation this year is the second half of October. We originally planned to go to Turkey, but Lonely Planet says that Cappadocia basically shuts down due to cold in mid October. So is that true, and if so, what other similar places would you suggest for a week at that time of year, in Europe? A little culture would be nice, since the rest of the tip will be spent in the Greek isles.

Should I buy currency now in case the US dollar falls before my big trip?

Diversity song

Does anyone know the name of this music video that was very popular in Turkey the last few months: the artist is a woman singing in Hindi (I think); the song is about 'different colors' (we are all different) and has diverse characters - with a lot of diverse styles. It is a real catchy song and a the video is full of beautiful colors.
