Hello I am back - just in case you had missed me!!!

We went to Turkey for a week's holiday and it was absolutely fabulous, weather, the people, the food and the places we visited were out of this world.

I have uploaded some photos and would have done more but the machine doesn't let me so breath a sigh of relief!!

The photo above is of a Whirling Dirvish and that was a fabulous evening, they did a reinactment of the actual service which we were not allowed to photograph and then this guy came on at the end, the whole service was magical and so thought provoking. I have to confess to never knowing the truth and meaning behind them as a religious group. But oh so wonderful.

The two photos below are of Cappadocia - which was just like entering a magic fairy world, little
natural chimney rocks which have been turned into dwellings over the millennium. We had a view of one from our hotel window. Rob's Mum who is 82 this year came with us and this is her with our Guide Osman who was such a lovely man.

This picture was the ceiling in a Ceramic musuem in Konya it was absolutely fabulous the centre of the doomed ceiling opened to allow the sun into the room to shine on this large pit for wine making.
I could go on and on about the Place but hey ho
better go and start sewing touch job but someone has to do it.
