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



Another day at the beach

Istanbul really is a splendid city in that, when summer high reaches 95° F (35° C), you can get to the beach in less than an hour. The Black Sea's water is slightly salty, warm and clear. The sea itself is huge - it melts into the horizon, with the curvature of the earth preventing one from seeing the Russian coast on the opposite side. The Black Sea's total area is roughly equivalent to the size of California or Sweden. It is surrounded by Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine, Russia and Georgia. And it is wonderful on a hot day.

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?
