On two weeks we will be back in this great city. To read reports of the floods taking place there is truly disheartening.

Not because we are going because apparently the waters have not penetrated the main tourist areas of the city where most of the sites are situated.

Once again however we see another tourist country that can ill afford financial setbacks being hit hard by nature.

We will go and I know we will be happy to be back there again.

i only hope the residendts do not suffer too much.

If you have never been to Turkey, you are missing one of the great experiences of the world.

They are wonderful people, who serve exceptional food, in the most captivating environments you can imagine.
