Rare items in the mail box today, and they are soooo appreciated.
TestTower sends the "Squid Patrol" to help collect te "kalamarakia", I am sure!
Always fun to get a card from Test...and the flip side has the TestTower sea and a bit
of 1940's fashion in swim wear!
Thanks a lot, Test!
Kemal in Istanbul sent this unusual yellow and black card:
Knowing I love map fragments, there are a few interesting details.
The tram route in the old city of Istanbul from Eminonu and the Galata Bridge:
stopping at the main trin station: Sirkeci, and Sultan Ahmet mosque ("Blue Mosque"),
and many other areas that I have known. Brought back many nice memories-of-a-city!
And this detail is the "Harem" stop for the ferry boats on the Asian side of the city:
this is not the "Harem" of the Sultan's Palace: Topkapi!
And some great Turkish postage stamps too! Thank you, Kemal!
