I will post more about the trip on Friday, but I wanted to share a few pictures and observations now.
Turkey is a gorgeous country. I'm not sure what I expected--I think a huge expanse of desert and nothing else--but it was beautiful and green and the ocean was an incredible blue.
We spent a couple of evenings exploring the area. Mt. Ida (also known as the Devil's Footprint) is a beautiful area. At night it was enchanting.
The food was not bad at all. In fact, most of it was delicious. Every day when in Istanbul, I had this omelet. Delicious and spicy...
The ugly side of Turkey is the stray dogs and cats. They're everywhere. On the sidewalk. In the streets. On the shoulder of the highway. In the middle of the highway, terrified and not sure in which direction they should go. In the fields, thirsty and hungry.
I'll post more about my trip and the dogs we rescued on Friday. And speaking of Friday, here's the picture for this Friday's Back-of-the-Book Blurb. (Sorry Val, that you have such little time to write the reviews and the blurb. I'll get back on my normal schedule next week.)
