Eight..Eight..Eight Cards in One!!

Turkey - Multiview 3

Sent by: Nihan
From: Adapazari, Turkey
For: Private swap
Notes: Some Postcrossers don't like multiview cards very much, but I don't mind them.  You get to see a bunch of different sights all at once.  In this case, the multiview card features various locations around the country of Turkey, or Türkiye.  The upper left shows the resort town of Kuşadası, which is obviously a popular port for cruise ships.  Below that is the Great Theatre at Ephesus, and the bottom left is Cappadocia, a historical region and UNESCO World Heritage site that features the Fairy Chimneys rock formation

The top middle photo also shows a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.  It was originally a Christian basilica when it was completed in 537 A.D.; then it was an imperial mosque, and now it is a museum.  I think you have probably figured out that the world map on the bottom is showing the location of Turkey. 

The upper right photo is the lake Uzungöl, located south of the city of Trabzon in the Çaykara district.  The center photo on the right shows the rock-cut tombs in the ancient city of Myra.  Finally, the lower right is a photo of some boats in the city of Istanbul (not Constantinople). (You're welcome for that link!)

What a coincidence! I happened to have visited Kusadasi in 1999, and it was while on a cruise ship! =) Spent a whole afternoon there, and a local tried to buy my sister for 3 camels. Good, quality camels, he assured me. It was a tempting offer--not so much for wanting the camels, but to get rid of my sister. =)

You're the only person I know that's actually been to Turkey. Well, unless you count a professor I had in college who was originally from there.

I was going to post a link to the They Might Be Giants official video, but then I thought "Hey, wait a minute, didn't Craig do that song at some point?" YUP!!
