Istanbul trip 2000

Neil and Lorie Khatod in Georgia

This past Columbus Day, Lorie and I were blessed to travel with local friends Greg, Pam, and Nancy to Istanbul. Once there, we visited one of the world's most beautiful and historic cities as the guests of a truly hospitable Kurdish family who owns several Turkish rug stores. We were lucky to see some of the world's most beautiful Mosques. Also we saw artifacts from the Crusades. Of course Lorie found plenty of shopping (rugs and clothes). Our freinds threw Lorie a birthday party and we took her to Asia for the Day. This was one of the most wonderful trips that I have ever taken, and we can't wait to return.

The Whirling Dervishes. Quite a site!


Ladies who dig Dervishes!! Where do I get one of those hats?

Special thanks to Nancy Dauber and Murat for our wonderful experience!
