There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune

Mens sane in corpore sano

Double Barrel is presently in post-marathon form, and I seem to be getting into a bit better shape. So, we ran up the hills of Bodrum yesterday, managing to leave the road and find and lose a trail through sage brush to the top of a remote point, sandwiched between the beach resorts. From there, we had a nice view of the Greek (Ionian) island of Rhodes and the blue waters of the Aegean.

Ever the Classicist, Double B informs me that Bodrum is the home of Herodotus, the father of history. I'm hoping it is a city with a profitable future, threfore I attended a business meeting, then we traveled overland to Kuşadası, over the fine Anatolian hills and verdant valleys.

I had come here many years ago, when I was much younger.

About me

  • I'm Sunset Shazz
  • Living the dream in Istanbul, Turkey
  • I grew up in the hardscrabble streets of suburban Ottawa, Ontario, committing petty crime, insulting the elderly - basically the classic misspent youth. When I was 19, I moved to West Philly, where I put myself through the Wharton School by dealing crack and hustling. After stints in Paris and London, I eventually graduated and moved to San Francisco, where I put in eight years hard labor working for The Man. But now I pop bottles with models, deciding cracked crab or lobster - who says mobsters don't prosper?
