    Good grief! How old is the passport? Would never have thought of that as a relic but it sure is after seeing this post. Super find!


  2. I visited Ataturk’s house in Thessaloniki (Greece) a few years ago, it is interesting that many leaders associated with one country came from another…. Stalin (Russia/Georgia), Hitler (Germany/Austria), Napoleon (France/Corsica) and Ataturk (Turkey/Greece). Maybe they felt a greater need to prove themselves for being outsiders. Ataturk’s legacy is remarkable.

    Interesting photograph. I have just returned from an enjoyable 8-day stay in Istanbul. Have posted three blogs from there at petersadventures.wordpress.com
