  5. Ohh, I love the Galata one. We lived in Istanbul 3 years, and that is one crazy floating bridge! 1925!

  6. Ruth: Oh I am envious - I have ALWAYS wanted to go to Turkey and especially Istanbul (a romantic notion, maybe it isn't so great anymore?). 3 years!

  7. Nice postcards, makes you dream of faraway places doesn't it?

  8. It was wonderful when we lived there, but I hear from friends that it has lost its "Orientness." Maybe. But I imagine it is still an incredibly beautiful mix of ancient Asia, medieval Europe and contemporary culture. I also imagine it is still a good bargain. Oh dear, now I want to plan a trip for you!

  9. Ruth, I suspected that it would have become too westernized and therefore a disappointment if I went now. But I will let you be my guide if I change my mind!
