The Leyla Gencer dıed


...on the age of 79 in Milano, Italy. A liberal and social democrat. But her passion was singing.

North Carolina Turkish Festival

Did you know that there's so many Turks in North Carolina that they have the Divan Cultural Center and the American-Turkish Association?

Recently, I visited what will be my new home town, Cary, North Carolina, and attended an all-day Turkish cultural event sponsored by the Divan Cultural Center. I met new friends and enjoyed the food, dance, shopping and businesses owned by Turks.

I give you a glimpse of the event everyday from April 21-26 all about the Turkish Festival and set up a special page for all my photos. Enjoy them!

Don't forget to give your patronage to the Turkish businesses when visiting the area.

Off for Budapest

The next 5 days I will be relaxing with 120 other people from 60 different countries in a SPA on an island in the Donau in Budapest.
Still in doubt if I shall take my laptop with me, if not, then you will not hear from me until next Wednesday. If you will hear from me, means that I'm addicted to Internet...

Day Opening - May 10



St Basil's Cathedral
