    #22 @Ken Boddie Greetings from Johannesburg. Ah the joys of Turkish delight !!! Also some places are best seen through beer goggles !!

    Thanks again for bringing back memories, Pak Paul, which at my age are vague indeed. I visited Istanbul too many years ago with a bunch of engineers newly graduated from Aberdeen Uni. Even back then there was a security scare which prevented us from visiting the Bosporus Bridge (first one) which was under construction. My memories of 'Turkish delight' were the 'entertainment' in an infamous nightclub from which we were ejected for ..... well that's a different story. I'm pretty sure we visited the iconic places you mention and which you have beautifully illustrated, but my recollection was distorted through beer goggles. Another prime example of life being wasted on the young. 😂

    Turkey is a very interesting place if only because I have noted how young Turkish people have adapted to social networks and so I can only judge from my own biased perspective of very enlightening and pleasant encounters.

    While the expression "Young Turks" is generally a positive, a growing expression is "Mechanical Turks" but this is not about Turkish people, it is about the research industry who use a form of cheap labour to conduct research.

    Erdogan does not much help matters politically speaking but I must give credit to Turkish people who recognize the value within Turkey of a secular culture. When I combine that with the rich history and geographical beauty of Turkey as outlined in this buzz, no wonder @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee also speaks fondly and with respect for the place he has often visited in a business capacity.

    One day I hope to visit Istanbul, hopefully not as a part of my aging farewell tour but while I am still relatively a "Young Turk" :-)

I'll tell you why; nobody twisted my arm --allowing the architectural/cultural splendor of this storied bridge between Asia and Europe...the echoes of Byzantine whispers in the calls to prayer --all , all to pass me by while I foolishly misspent my youth laundering currency and smuggling freshly blackened Poppy Sap for a quick buck and a 24 hour coma in a nameless Opium Den; awakening to find my "vision of a hostess without equal --in both grace and beauty in fine silks" ...gone; along with my cufflinks and fine Corinthian Leather wallet from the peerless Ivanka Trump Line --the embodiment of my highest aspirations at the time...A philosophically empty obsession with "style" as an equal to Plato's Ideal, and Bagdahd's extension of Pythagoras..."Al-Jabbar"; Analytic Geometry; the key to the spheres...I am ashamed still; for I was a fool!

    Hi @Paul Walters, as usual, very descriptive. I'm glad Dean was able to point you in the direction of The Elephant bar, sounds like it certainly didn't disappoint! You wrote: "The Chinese, Japanese and Koreans are pouring untold millions into the construction of scores of apartment and office complexes, though who will occupy them? The Chinese, Japanese and Koreans I guess." Those were my thoughts too as I read it before reading your reaction. Wow, I had no idea about the secret prison, Khmer Rouge, that's so sad... understatement.

    A visit to the "Killing Fields" and the prison makes a trip to Cambodia a little hard to digest but it does not fade from importance and I agree, we must never forget... I find it particular fitting that they have chosen to keep the blood on the walls and the torture wire frame bed just as they were.

    Such a pitch perfect post, Gert. Travel is good for the brain, tastebuds, and our human compass. Having the means to travel a second time, in sharing a journey via writing, is definitely one of the perks of travel that gets overlooked and should be something we all resort to, when the doldrums arise.

    24/05/2017 #37 Ken Boddie
    How true are the rediscoveries of travel through writing, Gert. Being one who has a shocking memory, I always carry a handy notebook when travelling and also gather information (rarely ever discarded) from pamphlets, tickets and posters, begged, borrowed and stolen along the way. This is much to the chagrin of my better half who nags me until I file everything in an orderly fashion. Then there are the sorting of hundreds (if not thousands) of photos and the occasional discovery of details which went quite unnoticed on the day but are revealed in that lens-captured frozen point in time. Sometimes I think that the actual trip and its preparation are a mere reconnaissance, and that the real journey is the full realisation through later documentation and photographic presentation.

    But the real benefit of travel, to which you allude in your excellent post, Gert, is that we realise a greater affinity with our fellow man, at home and abroad. There is nothing that sharpens our social awareness and sympathy, for those of different cultures and beliefs, than being a stranger in the society of others. And there is nothing that better propagates this affinity than being unconditionally welcomed by total and absolute strangers.

    Dear @Gert Scholtz, you are not only a renaissance man, but a troubadour as well!! Love your writing style and the way you "see" the world. Besides being so enjoyable (and triggering pop culture memories of 2 musicals; 1. which I saw at a young age, read impressionable young girl, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4Nr-IIvuTo and 2. young adult who loves musicals, you can start it a 1:11, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTymtAbaG08&list=RDNTymtAbaG08#t=22), your writing incorporates all the things I believe in: the fact that we are sensory beings and storytellers, and a great line about our brain that defies Artificial Intelligence, "The brain is a neural tangle of multiple possibilities and impressions.

    #27 Lisa, if you are really keen on photography, my best advice to you is to take an on line course. I completed a diploma on line many years ago and though I knew quite a lot until I did the course. If you pick the right one, you will be given practicals to do every week, or in your own time, if weekly is too much, and you should be able to get great feedback from your on line tutor. As for Photoshop, you don't really need it and there are many cheaper and less complex programs around, but Photoshop is the industry standard and well worth the time investment. An alternative editor, which has great crits and is much cheaper, is Lightroom, but I have no hands on experience with this. Why not join a local club? They're not hard to find and you'll pick up many interesting tips to get you on your way.

    #13 #14 I love your frank honesty Ken :)) That means you are down to earth! I like the idea of keeping a notepad with me. I always forget so many details when I travel. It's easy to forget. I think I will grab one and keep it in my purse when we leave. Dr. Google is very generous, isn't he? I want to learn how to take raw photos. I met a professional photographer on IG a few years back and he still uses an older camera and said he won't use anything but. He does the same, develops, turns them into jpegs and I'm not sure about Photoshop. I just began teaching myself how to use Photoshop. I hate when I take a nice photo but no matter what settings I use it may look drab. I also use a few free photo editors too. Is it hard to take raw and then develop them? Sort of sounds relaxing to me. I'm glad you and your wife had such a good time. Welcome home a few weeks late. My husband and I were both really sick this past month and I missed a lot. He's still recovering from pneumonia and we leave on Friday, yikes! Send the healing Gods LOL

    #25 The images of this fascinating country, Gert, were bursting to be taken by my trusty Canon. You are of course correct in your assessment that I took some time to compile these two blogs to date, but much of the time was taken up in choosing only a very few photos from the 1200 or so developed jpegs, taken over a period of some two weeks, so as to hopefully match the blog subjects. When the culture, art and scenery of the places we visit is so stimulating, preparation time flies past, as you undoubtedly know yourself. Thanks for the compliments.

Fascinating information on a country and culture that is quite foreign to me, and your photos are superb. Thanks for taking what must have been a chunk of your time to compile these posts. Shared into the Travel Hive. Ever looking forward to the next Ken Boddie travel post!

    Wonderful buzz @Ken Boddie! I very much enjoyed in my time in Japan. The history, culture and beauty of which you write is difficult to put into words if you have not seen and experienced it with your own eyes, yet you did it a great justice. Well done!

    #19 I most certainly did. Being disabled, my travels are limited. I must "see" through the eyes of others. Thank you for the wonderful visuals and the opportunity to travel with you.

    #12 Thank you so much, Lada, for your compliments. I am glad you enjoyed this post. So many foreigners when travelling in Japan are fascinated by the kimono, which, when comprising a beautiful silk with subtle hues, worn by a woman with poise and maturity, is the epitomy of the Japanese female attire. To illustrate, I refer you to the two lovely ladies (above) who I photographed at the tea ceremony. The three young girls, however, who I shot in Tokyo's Hamarikyu Gardens (refer this earlier post: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ken-boddie/did-we-miss-cherry-blossom-season ), although also beautifully attired, almost appear to be casually dressed by comparison, as is befitting of a stroll outdoors in the uplifting cherry blossom.

    The first time I was in the Philippines in 1990 I was asked to try the 'balut'. (Is that how you spell it? It's balut, right?) They said it's a local delicacy and I must try it. So cautiously and rather reservedly I tried it. The first thing I tasted was some kind of feather. I said. "What's this?" "Come on," they replied. "Finish it," I did. It tasted like egg but the feather in my mouth was the lasting impression I had. Not sure if I want to try it again :)

    Your stay in Davao City (Philippines) wouldn't be complete if you haven't tried eating this! Despite of its sh*tty smell, the taste is quite the opposite. What kind of fruit is this? Tell me your thoughts! Gerald Diana

    Looks like the durian - the king of all fruits as they say. Yes it's smell can be bad but many people enjoy this fruit. Popular in Asia.

    #1 I don't know if you might have been mistaken @Tausif Mundrawala but there's another fruit that is also called Jackfruit but not the same look as this one. :)

    Its jack fruit and its famous here in India as well. In many Indian languages its called fanas. Are in India we prepare delicacies out of it like curries, gravy and desserts.
