I didn't know you lived in Turkey, Becky! Other than the water situation, what was it like?

It was wonderful! I'd go back in a heartbeat. The people were tremendously friendly, and I got to see a lot of ruins that are world famous. Ephesus left a crystal clear impression even though I was only 3 when we visited. I also got to go to school in a horse-drawn cab. Our town was right on the Mediterranean coast (Izmir), and at the time there was no TV broadcast in the country. It was a GREAT place to be a little kid.

I can imagine. If you get the chance check out the page Istanbul Cats. Some great photos, mind you some of them can be very stark and very sad. Still a good page of if you like photos and cats.

Ephesus is an incredible place. We only saw Istanbul and Ephesus, but they both were incredibly beautiful.

I want to go back. It's beautiful and fascinating. I also really want to see if I remember any of the kid Turkish I learned when we lived there. I remember "cafe var?" "Coffee, please?" Smile That's about it.

Minor crisis to start the morning. The power went off. Clear no storms, nada and kazam no power. Power is back on and the reason it was a minor crisis was I still able to get coffee.
