Incredible !
Ian, your photos are out of this world! They make me think of the Lord of the Rings. Now you can skydive next and I will fly in a hot air balloon next. :)

Ian, your journey is teaching me so much ! I have never even thought about eastern Turkey. The photos are beautiful. I had no idea that you would find such sophisticated art and architecture in the desertlike setting. Remarkable. I am so glad that you are able to pick up friends in your travels. That is a beautiful talent. By the way, your writing is very entertaining, informational and insightful. Thanks for all that you are sharing and giving to me. Love, Mom

Hi Ian, The view from the minaret was crazily high up. No wonder that you had vertigo. I would be interested to hear your views on the future of Egypt from your perspective. Love your blogs ! Mom

Inside Dome of the Rock
Back in the dark ages (1973) we were allowed in the Dome of the Rock. I recall that we had to take our shoes off so consequently it smelled like feet inside. The floor had blue carpeting and it was very open, yet dark, inside. I'll check my archives to see if I have any photos. I don't think we were allowed to take photos inside but it will be good to find those photos again anyway. Glad to hear that you were not hurt badly in the car accident. Perhaps that and other "luck" you've had may need to be reassessed! Love, Becky
