We are in Istanbul! I'm so happy I can't get myself to focus on writing for too long. I'll try to catch up in the evening, though.
Just one thing: Kirpa's death and its timing has left a very bitter aftertaste.
Veronica, Great to hear that you arrived safely. Hope you get the opportunity to unwind and enjoy. You defnitely deserve it.
I am happy that you are happy in Istanbul. To me it is a very exotic place. That is s place I would be scared to visit, much as I may like to. My Dad came from Ukraine,yet that is one country that I'm afraid to visit. But maybe I should,if somebody holds me up...I'll just say..what will you do..kill an old man? I read Ukranian,but I have nobody to speak with.Bye bye,John, Edmonton, Canada
