    Stopping by to say hello. Will return later. Because, really.

    That bout of Delhi belly wasn’t bad at all, you managed to get off the loo long enough to lie in bed.

    That’s what comes from drinking the water, at least that’s what the British say.

    At least you had a good time beforehand.

    You’ve got kilim for friends-I-haven’t-met-yet-but-know-I-will-someday, right? I love the busy, hieroglyphic rug. So many beautiful colors.

    So sorry about the grumbly guts and so glad you are feeling better. That Sipro will cure what ails ya — it pulled me out of a horrific sinus infection one Christmas at the in-laws.

    Have you heard of doctor fish? Read about them on Wikipedia (, then proceed to wherever they are and partake. When Smokey told me about them I was enchanted. I think it would tickle.

    Never heard such an entertaining story of the runs, but I’m thinking that the true test of Jocelyn’s humour would have been when you were right in the, ah, thick (or thin) of it. You’re amazing.
    Also, I like the way you shop. One of the basic tenets of my faith is that when you find something incredible, you buy multiples and worry about transport later. In fact, you don’t even worry about it, you just make it happen. Because it’s unthinkable that you would leave all those lovely things there in the shop and to hell with baggage allowances.
    And it’s fun to think that all those people who didn’t get the chance to visit you in Turkey (yours truly included 🙁 ) will be able to haul on over to your house for a Friday night of television and get a feel for the place.

    I’m seconding yogurt’s comment above. Friends whom you just haven’t yet met. Killim for those friends, too???? 🙂
    This kind of experience….the being sick and all is what will make for a wonderful story in your old age as you tell the great grandchildren about all of it.

  7. I thought everyone left the country with a hefty supply of Cipro–I’m glad you found some. I’m also glad it was after, and not during, your fantastic vacay.

    The rugs are gorgeous!

    oh let the wailing and gnashing of teeth begin…..if i had thought to mention cipro and the joys of otc antibiotics early on in your turkish life i may have ingratiated myself enough to warrant a kilim!

    ah but they are lovely. so lovely in fact that i rushed thru the landscape shots to see the kilims and didn’t regret it.

  9. When my sister and BIL got that in Nepal, they called it the Kathmanflu (and sometimes the Kathmanpoo). An unfortunate travel problem, to be sure. But the Mediterranean is good.

  10. Thank God for friends with drugs. So glad you’re feeling better. i wanna rug. How difficult it must have been to choose. Thinking I could hang out at some of those beaches.
