    A great story, very engaging and informative. I enjoyed reading about the superstitions and cultural foibles of Turkey. I have visited the country twice and would love to go again.

    1. I am really glad you enjoyed the book.
      I have often thought how much I would love to see Istanbul again – not just because it is so interesting but because I would be curious to see what has changed since I lived there.

  2. My life seems so boring all of a sudden. Held at gunpoint? Where was Bruce Willis when you needed him, huh?

    1. I’ve been held at gunpoint in Sicily, too. My life is FAR too interesting!
      The oddest thing was that, in Istanbul, it was a woman. She looked like such a bimbo I just kept thinking “I bet she’s a terrible shot. If she shoots at me, I wonder who she’ll actually hit?”

      1. Good job you didn’t have to find out. She would have deprived us all of good reading if she’d aimed right 😀

    Sounds like an interesting read, to me! I’m taking a group of 40 to Istanbul next week, and look forward to Istanbul. This will be about my 10th group to Turkey, but I love to see it afresh in the eyes of these students.

      I hope you have great fun in Istanbul – and I hope you enjoy the book if you decide to buy it.
