I went to Turkey...............

And I'm back to talk about it! I've got a suitcase full of souvenirs. I got a beautiful Turkish art book at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul and booklets from each place we stopped at. I'm going to be posting my pix on the Internet as soon as someone sends me his CD. I didn't take a camera, I made a deal with someone to send me the pix because I have a nasty habit of misplacing things and I didn't want to run the risk of misplacing an expensive camera. In some hotels I misplaced my key three and four times. We saw a caravanserai, one of a bunch of medieval inns built on the SilK Road. We saw the ruins at Ephesus, saw an emotional memorial commemorating the Gallipoli campaign in 1915, saw beautiful mosques.........those mosques were amazing! I love Turkish mosques. We saw the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, along with Ayasofia..........now I have to unpack. Damn.

Can't wait to see the pictures. Why Turkey? Was due to a project you had in World History and fell in love with Turkey?

I just picked a template for a travel photo album site on Tripod. Now I have to wait for the guy to send me the CD with the pix on them, then I have to sort through them and label them......can you say "never a dull moment"? It all started three years ago, when my historical re-enactment group was putting on a Middle Eastern themed event. They asked me to do a class on some academic topic. I chose the Turks, and I was fascinated. It turned into an obsession. I wanted to see caravanserais, whirling dervishes, the mosques, the place is a historian and artist's paradise. I decided I had to go and see all of this stuff. Now I'm going through my loot, postcards and books from the various places we settled. I spent too much money on this stuff, but that's no surprise, I knew I was going to do that.
