Continuing on from Turkey News 1, Fizzfan again sends us her impressions and photos of her Turkish holiday
And as expected there were lots of moggies n doggies etc that were very friendly too which I loved and rewarded with lots of leftovers, although I did find out moggies definitely do not like curried chicken even if you take the sauce off!
One of my strangest and most lasting memories of Turkey is what I came to refer to as my Allah Alarm call.
Every day at 5.00 am and 5.00 pm the 'call to prayer' would be aired and I found it oddly hypnotic and rather beautiful. Here's a link if you'd like a listen. I actually found it so soothing I think they should air it at bedtime!
Sadly because of the troubles in the Middle East their tourism trade has been very badly affected which is such a shame because the country and the people are both very beautiful.
I enjoyed my stay there very much and only wish I'd been closer to Istanbul as apparently it's absolutely amazing.
Nice to be back though cos there's no place like home :)
