We took the day to relax on a ferryboat tour of the Bosphorus. An hour and a half up the strait, an hour and a half back down. In between the boat rides, I walked with students up a mountain to see the Yoros Castle (Yoros Kalesi). It was a trek, no doubt – sweaty and hot, no clouds to block the sun – and when we saw closed doors at the peak, I worried they would be disappointed. Almost ready to head back down, to relax with nargile by the water, I tried banging on the door a few times. A man opened it furtively. I begged him, in broken but desperate Turkish, to let the students in two explore. “Just two minutes!”
“In two minutes, I will lock this door and go to lunch. Two minutes!”
The students rushed past the door, ooh-ing and ahh-ing at the thin strips of land that give shape to the Black Sea. Hundreds of ships, tiny like ants, waited their turn to pass into the Dardanelles. After a few minutes of jumping around and snapping group photos, we hustled out of the castle area, but continued to wander. Rufus, a stray dog, guided us down the mountain.
Perseverance, y’all – it pays off.
Nice shot! :)

After climbing Striding Edge in the Lake District, I cooled my feet in an enticing stream.
Must have felt good! :)

I am at a precipice physically here which was totally reflecting my emotional self, on the edge of making decisions that effect my life and others, of being in truth with myself and those around me.
Excellent image and words! :)
