Cynical remark... EASY to contact by email.

Hello,

I have people say to email them. They are easy to contact by email.

This is corrrect. They are easy for me to contact.

They seem to not understand how to click on the reply button though.

But they are correct. It was easy for me to contact them.

Getting a reply is another thing.

I find that email boxes are paved with good intention.

I will read the emails and respond later.

The later never comes.

More important to me, because I cannot really call them.


NEED SYRIA VISA?

My friend from Russia, that lives in Iraq recommended I get a visa for Syria. I am thinking I need one, and should take care of this while in Istanbul.


CLOTHES DAY

Washed some clothes today. Am back on the daily cycle of washing clothes. I am not brave enough to even test the waters here on the price to have my clothes washed. A soda cost between 75 cents and a dollar in a quicky market.

It cost less in my home city. But this is a tourist area.


CHANGES IN LATITUDES

I think I am the same latitude more or less as Indiana.

About 41 degrees above the Equator.

Indiana is Hotter. More humidity. I brought along a thermometer.

The temperature is between 78-84 most of the time. It is a dry heat, and the concrete construction keeps it cooler.

IF YOU WISH TO PLAY WITH LATITUDES...

Go here for lots of details.

TO SEE THE PHOTOS

I have taken about 100 photos of Istanbul.

Will post them in next newsletter.

It is really a lot easier to get reminded to look by just subscribing to the newsletter. It will come in your box, and you can look at photos and read this BLOG also.

Click on the Subscribe link at the top of this page and it will lead you down the path to redemption.


MY SPELLING IS BAD

Hello,

A very beautiful girl sent me her photo and also explained or described in detail how my spelling and grammar was bad. She is correct. I wish she would have told me about the photo first. Good news than..then? bad news.

But I know it. But if I could see it, I would change it.

I presently am trying to get the correct keys on the keyboard to work.

Internet cafes can be exciting.

Note... Question on form to the British guys. It is bad FORM to say she needs to come and help... ? Travel... Walk... ect...


INTERNET WEAK

Hmm, The internet here in Istanbul is weak.

The machines are junky and there is no one to help. Strange in a city where there is help everywhere. There seems to be a direct connection. It does not break. The keyboard is different and I must adjust it to English all the time.
