Into the Eye of the Storm



July 07, 2010 – Comments (6)

Ok, Capsters, I'm off. 

I'm heading to Istanbul and Athens for a 9 day trip.  (I like these short vacations - they're easy to pack for.)  While I'm there, let's here it for some protests!  I'm a big fan of civil unrest.  I was in Islamabad in 1999/2000 when Musharaf took over in a military coup.  I was in South Africa for some anti-US protests (over patents keeping cheap AIDS medicine out of the reach of Africans).  I even caught a Commie protest in some tiny town in southern India while I was there. 

In other words, they always seem to find me. I'm a walking international incident waiting to happen.  Therefore, I will be really disappointed if the Commies in Greece aren't spray painting the Acropolis when I show up.

Hopefully I'll have something useful to say when I return, like my trip to India.

Take care,

David in Transit

 Just tell the Turks, you think the Greeks are right and vice versa... you'll get plenty of protesting, and maybe more than you can handle. However your goal is probably not to start an international incident, just see it happen. So possibly my idea is not the way you want to go.

 Have Fun!

Enjoy the travel.  If you are healthy enough to do it, and can afford it, go for it.  As for me, health reasons limit me to the travel channel ;/
