I have just been on a visit to Turkey and Spain. My blogging time is limited - I have visitors arriving tomorrow, a mass of paperwork to do, and I am still weary from travel. I will blog some of the rest of it in time, but for now I am going to do something I do only occasionally and hit you with a mass of photographs without too much explanation. The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul was more organised somehow than Damascus and cleaner than Cairo, but the window and bench displays were luscious eye candy and a paeon to consumerism!
I am an Australian quiltmaker married to a diplomat (retired now). I have lived about fifteen years of the last thirty in the Middle East. This blog started in Egypt, and has morphed back to Australia with our return. I will leave the name the same but content will change.
