Hi Catherine,
Here is an article about Turkey you might enjoy while you're there. Check out the yalis, "the splendid waterside mansions built by the Ottoman families during the 18th and 19th centuries (Pamuk).

Hi Catherine
So wonderful to follow your journey. I greatly admire your endurance and determination. I'm not sure I would have it in me. My life at present seems so mundane.
