Istanbul's Turkish Baths(Hamam) are very special buildings dating back to the Ottoman time.

In a Turkish Bath, the main room consists of a raised marble platform which graces the centre of the Hamam and is known as Gobektasi (Belly stone). the heath on the surface of the Gobektasi might wary from warm to very hot depending on customer's desire.

These lovely old buildings are always worth to visit.

Cypriot Donkey

This is a special breed of donkey. This native of Cyprus is very stubborn but loyal. Many books and poems have been written in praise of this donkey.

Over the centuries it has been abused by its owners, being forced to carry more weight then it can bare. Over the years there has always been a debate between the two communities who owns the donkey and who has abused it more.

Poor old Cypriot Donkey, some politicians have blamed you for causing the division of the Island. I wish you could speak and tell the truth of the matter, who are the real stubborn ones who abused you.

In the decades, since the division you have enjoyed carrots on the Turkish side and suffered sticks on the Greek side, now the time has come for you to decide weather to take the carrot or the stick. Or will the age old stick and carrot routine work best - United Island.
