Sadly I have run out of time..I am in the middle of prep for a road trip from Colorado to Washington State.

I am going to take a client’s dog to Salt Lake City where the breeder is going to show him. I will then go on to Port Angeles, Washington to visit with friends I made on my road trip last June. Should be good fun.

I think I can get back to the Syria bit long about May 15th.

New Plan

Filed under: Interlude — she_travels at 2:15 pm on Thursday, April 22, 2010

I am living with Mack Attack the cat and his sister Lulu….the two of them are a hoot.

Sadly, Mack’s house does not have wireless, my computer does not work here.

The good news is Cedric’s mom is in NY, I am going down to his house to feed the horses.

The plan…resize pics, upload them from Cedric’s house and use the computer at Mack’s house to update the blog. The whole not updated thing is really starting to bug me.

There ya have it, new plan…lets see if I can pull it off.

Day 28- Still and Again ~ Oops!

Here is to hoping my time and connection are consistent enough to get a fair portion of  this done. I have been in Colorado for just over three weeks… I managed to survive Spring Break and withdrawal symptoms from sugar (nasty headache for 10 days). I am finally feeling pretty good with plenty of energy to sort, re-size and post pics to go with the wacky stories.

Ok. having trouble uploading pics…did I mention I have over 7 gig of images from this trip? Whew, that takes up some space.I am shifting stuff about and storing some on my seagate. Once I have it all sorted I will be back. Not to worry, my taxes are done the blog is the only thing nagging me at this point.

More Excuses

So, sorry for the delay…. recovery from the flights, spring break then I got sick. My mother would tell you I get sick every time I come back from a far off land. Easter with friends, TAXES…YUK!

I am shifting homes tomorrow.. I should have some time at the new place if I can get the internet to work. The week end is a bit jammed up but I have three days next week which should prove to be helpful with blog updating.It’s the  1st  thing I my “to do” list…honest!

I am in the middle of Spring Break (five clients out of town) , tis the reason I come back to Colo at this time of year other wise  would still be wandering some far off land.

We had snow last night, they were saying up to 11 inches last night and another 5 inches today. It is still dark out so I am not sure yet just how bad it is.

Anywho, I am hoping I can get back to pics and stories later this week or the first part of next week.

The whole of the trip was great fun and I am already attempting to shape my world for another visit.

Wish me luck today… between shoveling snow to get  in and out of these homes/barns I have to deal with nasty arse road conditions.  Not to worry though, the sun will be back tomorrow with just short of 50 degrees. Ya gotta love Colo weather.

Fast Fast

Hey Gang, I am in Syria having a grand time. Internet is nonexistent in accommodation at my price level and cafes are few and far between.

I will be here a few days then busing it 8 hours back to the border of Turkey and Syria. I think I will hop a plane to Istanbul. I have had quite enough of buses.

Anywho, I am safe and sound…not a worry in the word.

I have several stories and a photo or two to share one I can use my computer again.

I just don’t have it in me tonight.

Six hours in a bus, I thought the two hour walk would help me out but dang the area where the computer works has a combination of Turkish Jazz far to loud and a TV with a Turkish TV program even louder….how to they think in this place?

My head is pounding and if the guy had not said dinner was included “Do you like fish?” I would have a showered and gone to bed. Damn its 6.15.

Day Two ~ Feb 2nd

Filed under: Turkey — she_travels at 7:38 pm on Tuesday, February 2, 2010

It was cold, blowing and WET yesterday. I was whipped out and decided to research my next move and take a nap,  I was very surprised when I woke up at four in the afternoon, the good news is the sleep killed my raging headache. (side note ~ Did I ever mention plane travel is hard on me….I do this for the  getting there part not the going part. ) This place is far quieter in the day time (better for sleeping) cause everyone is out and about. That, and the cats were not fighting against my window.

The weather report for the next few days is a bit gloomy, 30’s with rain and or snow. This place is not like Colo where you are sure the sun will be back any minute, it more like Seattle were you are surprised if the sun makes an appearance.

I had planned to hop a ferry tomorrow bound for Bandirma then catch a bus to Cannakkale but I am not convinced I want to be in any bit of water in this weather.

I may hop a bus from here headed to a place called Bursa, the town is at the base of a mountain and being they are calling for snow it may be more impressive white.

I do hope my body and mind sort out the time change soon. Perhaps the fresh air tomorrow will help.

My new temp ATM card showed up about five pm but dang, it was pouring rain with wind gusts, not at all pretty.  I will test the card in the morning.

Well Hell!

I know, I should just hire someone to do it for me, but that would cost money, money I could use to get to some far off land.

My computer doesn’t work here but I managed to get the resident computer to understand me, took a few days, believe me.  I am going to re size the pics on my computer,  shift them to a memory stick and upload them from this computer. Yeah, had I just done it when my computer worked but I found a new bit of software that allows me to down load all my favorite TV shows, those shows I miss every time I leave this county. (I am a huge Boes, Castle,Mentalist fan) Anywho, in order to down load ya gotta build up credits, while doing this the bandwidth is gobbled up by the software…so… no space in the line for uploading pics.  Yeah, maybe my priorities are a bit askew but you try sitting on a plane with nothing to do for 16hours.

Ask anyone who knows me, I am darn good with dead lines… I am leaving for the Middle East Sunday, I have exactly a week to get the blog, the blog and the web site up to date and finish any research before I board a plane.

Well,  actually I have til Friday at noon, then my connection gets taken away from me.

The good news is I have an Otis (Shepard cross something) and a Missy (Chihuahua cross) to keep me company, never mind all the birds out the window I get to feed daily.

OK, here we go people!

I can’t seem to get my ducks together much less all swimming in the same direction.  I am working on it though.  I go back to Evergreen next week so maybe the time and energy will present itself to post more pics.
