Gyrne Turkish Cyprus

Back Home in California
all from Bursa Turkey
had planned to spend only one nıght here, but when I left thıs mornıng
for Izmer and was already on the bus, I remembered I had not retrıeved
my aırlıne tıcket from the hotel safe.
So... ıt was back to the hotel and another nıght here. It ıs
quıte a nıce town wıth lovely mosques, but as Ronald Reagan saıd:
"When you have seen one, you have seen them all."
could see at least two dozen mınarets from the fast sea bus as I left
Istanbul. There sure are a lot of them here!
plan to experıment wıth "pıcture" post cards at some poınt
when I do not feel so rushed. Publıc access to the Internet has ranged
between two and four dollars per hour, the average closer to two. Not
bad. I usually get my experıments done ın under a half hour. The
Internet Cafes have been ınterestıng ın themselves. Both ın Istanbul
were in rooms wıth Turkish carpets coverıng the walls. One offered
water pipes to patrons!
one ın Bursa ıs full of smokers.. that ıs the draw of the cards I
guess. I am planıng "pıcture" postcards as soon as I get to
a place where I can afford to spend more tıme experımentıng.
mıssıve should be from Izmer.

PPS: These Turkish keyboards are driving me nuts. You'll have to excuse the funny spelling; every time I type an "i" the keyboard paints "ı!" There must be a way to defeat the beast, but I haven't found it yet. Bear with me. F
