To Mr. Sivaslian -
Dear Sir, obviously your forefathers were from Sivas, a town about 4 hours driving straight east of Ankara where I live. In a few days I will be driving there for business at a coal mine and power plant. Should you so wish, I would be delighted to mail you a postcard from Sivas and send any info you would like. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org and fax no is 90-312-440-8640.

Brilliant. I have at last managed to find details of the Eastern Turkish Black Sea coast. The tourist map of Turkey was useful. I now know where I'm heading this summer.

Great resource about Turkey! I have seen the country only recently. If you love Mediterranean culture and hospitality then it is a MUST to visit this hidden jewel of the eastern Mediterranean region...

I have just returned from Turkey and discovered your web site. The country is fantastic and I will be returning in 1997. The Turkish people are the most friendly I have ever talked to. I have marked this site and will return to it in the near future. Gumbet is where I stayed and I will recommend to everyone, you will love it.

I wanted to explore the possibility of getting middle-eastern fashion jewelleries. Would you be able to provide me your catalogue of sample along with the pricing. I am planning to open a retail jewellery business and want to include middle eastern jewellery in my collection.

I will be traveling through Turkey for three weeks in early May. I am concerned with whether Levis or pants are acceptable for women, or if I should plan to wear skirts. We want to be properly dressed both for social acceptance and comfort. Thank you,

Subject: The smallest statue of world
To whom it may concern,
The smallest statue of world, which took two years to create, is in the form of a bust. Its height is 8mm. and width is 4,5 mm. It is made of agate which is very difficult to process and which is very precious because of this reason. This statue is smaller than a chickpeas and details can only be seen under a microscope. This handmade statue is invaluable, as no high technology is used during the sculpting process.

I lived in Yalova in the mid 60's and to this day can smell the sour dough in the air. I am looking for a recipe for ekmek and any help you can give me locating a recipe would be appreciated.

In mid June I will be in Turkey with a group from Minnesota in the United States. I am interested in any information you can provide me about orphanages, children's hospitals or other medical programs that may be in need of things we could bring - equipment, children's clothes, toys, books or whatever. Please let me know. My specialty area is children with disabilities but I would also be interested in any medical focus for this trip.

I have been really interested in visiting your Web site especially about Turkey.
Hi. I have just discovered your fine pub auite by accident. My daughter just returned from a tour that included Ephesus and other places in Turkey and Greece. In looking up Ephesus with Quarterdeck's Web Compass I noticed a lot of pages from your site so I decided to look at just your site to wee what was there.
