HOERAAAAAAAAAAA WELKOM MADONNA IN TURKEY 07 06-2012 IN the TURKISCH ARENA
Les Visiteurs by Gino Soccio, from his album Outline (1979).
This is the original French version (the English is easy to find on Youtube as well). Not Soccio's most popular song (Dancer takes that in a walk) but his first song is still my favourite. Unsurprisingly Soccio was the most influenced by Giorgio Moroder of all of the Canadian disco producers, but he brought his own distinct (and light) touch to all his recordings.
All the way to the Bosporus strait
Where the forbidden skin
shines more than the Venus’ passage
I would love to have seen the wonder,
but you were not here
So I decided not to look
Ain’t worth to see universal beauty if your hand wasn’t there to close the loop
I am sending to you all I have…
Two of the well-known tourist places in Istanbul are the Topkapı Palace Museum and the Aya Sofya Museum. I have to say that of the available sites in Istanbul to see and to gain a greater understanding of the history and legacy of the Ottoman people, these two are certainly not to be missed.
The entrance fee is 25 TL for the Aya Sofya and 15 TL for the Topkapı Palace Museum.

Backpacking in the rain is not fun.
Let's face it - it’s just really not an activity that holds its own too well when everything is wet. So as I woke up to the drum of heavy rain on the tin roof on the morning of our only full day in Fethiye I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t more than a little disappointed.
