Turkey to London-a bit out of order!

So I confused myself by only posting up half of my travel stories a while back, then doing new ones.

Anyways, here is the other part if you care. Will hopefully do the rest of my trip and final reflections soon, but no internet at home does make it hard.

Then it was Turkey, with 7 of my best friends, and the funniest! We visited the ancient city of Ephesus, smoked nargele (apple tobacco kinda stuff) out of this giant Turkish bong looking thing ina traditional Turkish bar with dancing and music etc, mucked around on NYE, got scrubbed, washed and massaged head to foot in a Turkish bath (now that, that is a cultural experience if ever I had one) and ate heaps of kebabs.

By far the best bit though was heading out to Gallipoli. Anzac Cove is just such an amzing place. You hear so much about it, and to see it,a nd put everything into perspective, was just brillaint. The poem written by their Army Commander and later President Mustafa Kemale Ataturk was incredible to read right there. Go check it out if you don't know it.

There is just so much I could say about that place, was so worthwhile. Has been interesting trying to articulate to foreigners why I went there an what i means to Australians etc. I mean it is kinda funy how much we celebrate a battle we eventually lost. I was struck by the stories of camraderie and mateship, particulalrly betwen the two countries. Top day in Turkey.

Paris is a beautiful city, and deserves everything people sy about it. It is just brilliant by night. People not so much, but not too bad.

After that I headed to Taize, which is like this eumenical monastery that people froma ll over the world go to to stop and reflect on their life and faith,to pray, for contemplation, and to explore where they are going in life. I really can't do it justice here, but was a really worthwhile time in amongst the rushing and touristy crap of my trip to stop and reflect on it all for a while.

London,other than hanging out with Lucas and Shaz,has been pretty underwhelming. Is just a big city with mediocre sights. I have loved being able to speak English, but it has not really grabbed me.
