We are back now from a two-week trip to Turkey. I have to say that Turkey is a wonderful country with so much to see, and the people everywhere we went were warm and kind and friendly. We spent the first 5 or 6 days in Istanbul (a wonderful city), and split the remainder of the time between Cappadocia and various places in Southeastern Turkey. If you ever have the opportunity to go, don't hesitate. Your only problem will be trying to decide which of the myriad of wonderful sites to visit in this truly exceptional country.
Here are some of the beehive-shaped houses you can see in the very ancient city of Harran (click on picture to view larger):
I'm now recovering from jet-lag and some sort of bug I picked up abroad. Waiting to feel well enough to get out and tidy up my gardens after my absence, and to delve into all of my fiber work again.
