Home Again ...


Bosphorous Gull, Istanbul, originally uploaded by - di.

We watched the rain roll in as we sat in the boarding lounge at Ataturk Airport. We felt the wind buffeting the plane around in a boisterous manner I didn't enjoy as we took off, and Lisen smsed to let us know we had missed hail and an Istanbul-spring slide into winter.

Belgium where the skies were mostly blue and the air still warm after 7pm ...

I'm sitting here backing-up all my Istanbul photos to another external hard-drive. It is taking forever. Something to do with having 6,790 items to transfer (73.6GB)

As soon as it's done, this tired wanderer is heading for bed.

Tot straks from Belgie.

What you are able to do with a camera and blog link is truly awesome. You make me feel free although I'm quite sure I am not.

You made me smile one of those big smiles, Barbara - although she might have been tidying herself up after having my dirty little feet walking ALL over her.

Thanks Tara. As for the rest, here I am with a broken body (I seem to have destroyed my shoulder the day before leaving) and it's just after 6.30am. My body is still on 7.30am Istanbul time. x0

Thank you for your very kind words, ca. I hope I can keep sharing this appreciation of the freedom I feel like I might be pursuing.
