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

Island in the stream

J, my buddy Gloucester and I had a nice, leisurely brunch in Bebek, overlooking the Bosphorus, then met up with another friend, who is a paid-up member of the club on Galatasaray Island, which is described breathlessly on its website as "one of the most prominent landmarks of the city". There, we basked in the sun, drank smoothies made from fresh kiwis, and swam in the saltwater pool. I think J was suitably impressed - read her professional writerly descriptions here. The views from the island are spectacular; when the day was done, it was tough to return to The Mainland.

    Made from 'fresh kiwis' ... ??

    Is that like 'cheeky New Zealanders'?

    Jesus of your day?

    Hmmm, did I completely fail to post my comment correction ... Jesus to Jealous?

    Sigh, slinking off.

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?
