Merhaba - hello to my travel friends and welcome to my latest adventure.  Journey with me as I walk the same paths and stone roads as the people of the Byzantine, Roman, and Ottoman Empires.  Enjoy the ruins, look into the faces of theTurkish people, immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of both Islam and Christianity, and don’t forget to stop and smell the roses - they are everywhere.

PS - PLEASE correct me if any information is incorrect.  I’ve really tried to research and get it right, but .....    Also, I have added some of the words in Turkish (using Google Translator), so, Kadir, if they are wrong ----

I tried, so please let me know the correct word.  I also couldn’t figure out how to change the type to reflect Turkish writing.  Oh, well.
