From Sunny Turkey To Rainy, Cold Minneapolis


In less than two weeks I was in Turkey, NYC, Denver, and Minneapolis – which explains why I haven’t been able to sleep very well lately.  I went from the sunny Mediterranean in Turkey to rainy NYC, then to brisk Denver, and finally to freezing cold Minneapolis!

This may be my favorite outdoor art display ever. Antalya, Turkey had a street with colorful umbrellas creating shade for pedestrians. Loved this outdoor art!

Thank you Lycian Way for serving up the perfect beach sunrise on my last hiking day!

I arrived in Minneapolis and so has winter. I was so lazy I couldn’t bring myself to go outside in the cold and snow to get this pic. So shot from the window!
