i've also heard that turkey is SO eclectic now, because of all of the different influences.  perhaps that is another reason women do not have to wear hijab in public.
 
Right now Turkey is producing some of the best films about humanity and human growth.  It's an exciting time there.

no, not at all. They are very secular here and many people dont respect the scarf..... When you visit a Mosque they ask that you cover your body (arms/legs,) and in some mosques they give you something to cover your head. If you are interested, there is a very good book called Snow by Orhan Paumk about the Turkish feelings about the scarf.....

yes..... everytime.... they use a sort of speaker system so you hear it all over.... you can hear it from a few Mosques at one time..... the village we stayed at on Aegean had no Mosque to speak of. it was very strange to go for a few days with no calls.

Saturday I saw two young deer and a Bambi fawn standing together in a beautifully landscaped front lawn, then they turned and ran. ... What? Where is the "What did you see the day before yesterday" topic?
