Experience Turkey and Istanbul.
Looking for a different vacation idea? Consider Turkey!
Turkey is an inexpensive place to
visit, and there are some extraordinary sights to see. Turkey is rich in
both history and ancient ruins. Ephesus, Pergamum, and Troy are just a few
of the ancient cities you can tour. Volcanic deposits in the east and
mineral formations in the west compliment the beauty of the mountains and
coastlines. Turkish carpets and handicrafts are of extraordinary quality
and available everywhere. There are some things to be aware of:
like mosquito season and eastern toilets. Consult a good guidebook at the
library or bookstore. I recommend going in April when there are no
mosquitoes and few tourists.

Obelisk of Theodosius, carved of granite
in Egypt about 1500 BC,
The origin of this rough-stone obelisk is unknown.
