What an interesting experience !!! - to witness your own work translated into Turkish, delivered to a Turkish audience, by a Turk, in Turkey. At the start of the week I knew no Turkish words at all - but by the end of the week I'd learned three !!!

Izmir is placed on the west coast of Turkey, densely populated and hectic for many travelers. It is an excellent transport hub. Spending a few hours in this place can take the traveler back centuries to follow the footsteps of the cultures which lived here.
