Littourati on Hiatus for Three Weeks: Off to Turkey!

Meerhaba Littourati!  If you're wondering why there hasn't been any new posts in a while, it's because I am traveling.  I am accompanying my wife as she participates in a delegation of journalists to Turkey,  Our trip will take us from Istanbul to Ankara, south to Konya, then into Cappadocia, Izmir, and a stop in Ephesus.  Finally, we will finish with five more days to take in the sights and sounds of Istanbul again.

I will be back on May 30, and the Blue Highways posts will continue then.  In the meantime, I hope to make occasional postings to my personal blog, Muse Gumbo, and will possibly develop an interactive map of our trip, complete with pictures and perhaps even some video.

I look forward to getting back to the Blue Highways when I return, but for now, think of me in a bazaar bargaining for rugs, or in a Turkish bath, or watching Sufis whirling to touch God.
