Ankara
While not as impressive as Istanbul, Ankara is still a worthwhile stop on your tour of the region. The main draw is the Hisar which is a hilltop Citadel from the Byzantine era which overlooks the city. Ankara was an important city during the Roman rule so there are a number of small Roman ruins scattered around the city. Many travellers also like to visit Ephesus (formerly Ionia), which had been inhabited by both the Greek and Roman Empires, leaving a significant number of well preserved ruins. Of primary importance is the Temple of Diana, which was one of the seven wonders of the Greek world and is still an incredibly impressive sight. You could easily spend a day here exploring all of the various ruins that the city has to offer.

Antalya
This charming and popular resort town is perched on a cliff promontory on the Mediterranean coast. It boasts a picturesque walled old town and harbour, Kaleiçi, the monumental Hadrian's Gate, Kesik Minare and Yivli Minare mosques and Hidirlik Kulesi, the round Roman tower, and a superb Archaeological Museum. Don’t miss Turkey's finest Roman aqueduct north of the city.

Bodrum
Bodrum, the birthplace of Herodotus, known as the father of history, is one of the finest resort towns on the South Aegean coast. Dominating the town from its position between the two harbours is the magnificent 15th century crusader Castle of Saint Peter. It now houses a fascinating Museum of Underwater Archaeology. Another Bodrum attraction is the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, the crumbling remains of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

Bosphorus
Experience the historically and symbolically significant Bosphorus, the narrow strait that divides Europe from Asia. From here you see the Istanbul skyline, one of the most dramatic in the world. Two massive suspension bridges now span these bustling waters, in which tour boats, ferries, and fishing vessels vie for space. Tours up the Bosphorus stop at several notable buildings, including the Sultans' 19th-century Dolmabahçe Palace. On the far Asian shores lie Uskudar (Scutari), where Florence Nightingale nursed the wounded during the Crimean War; the charming Ottoman summer palace of Beylerbeyi; and a whole series of delightful villages full of fresh fish restaurants and fine old mansions, built by the 19th-century aristocracy. Looming at each other across the water are several Byzantine and Ottoman castles, including Anadoluhisar and Rumelihisar.

Cappadocia
A visit to Cappadocia, southeast of Ankara, is a must. Marvel at the spectacular, almost surreal landscape of rock and cones, capped pinnacles and ravines where dwellings have been hewn from the soft, volcanic rock since 400 BC and the elaborate cave systems have sheltered generations of persecuted settlers. Check out the impressive UNESCO site of Göreme National Park, with over thirty magnificently frescoed Byzantine rock churches. There are over 400 underground cities in the area; two of the biggest and most enthralling are Kaymakli and Derinkuyu, with up to eight floors and complex systems of apartments, public rooms and streets that could house hundreds of people.Visit this website for further information about Cappadocia

Hi G. and L.,
It's Thursday (again!). I just wanted to say what great fun it was seeing both of you from outside your home with a high-powered Army Ranger-issue telescopic sight. You both look marvelous nude! Also, I heard that an appointment to the Supreme Court includes lifelong medical and dental. I wonder if parking is included (maybe too much to ask for!). I like the Internet. It's a fun way to meet new friends. Without you my life would be meaningless and I would commit suicide. Good times ahead!
Your "Supreme" pal,
Harry (NOT Belafonte!)

No judgment here

In a situation much like yours, although the drug(s) of choice were different. My ex actually decided to straighten up a while after our child was born because he, too, loved the baby more than anything. Except he didn't go through rehab, he just did it cold turkey. Oh and yeah, he eventually started drinking instead. And gambling (which is why I no longer have my hard-earned life savings b/c the bastard drained the account before I knew what was going on to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars).
The drinking wasn't obviously excessive for a quite a while, it seemed like he was just having a few beers at night

The notion of becoming a race-car driver occurred to me. But I was on track to go to university, and I knew it would be foolish to throw away that opportunity. Besides, I didn't think I had the stamina - or the guts - to hold my own among other drivers. It's one thing to race by yourself, quite another to do it day after day in gruelling competition. Nor did I have any experience in the man's world, the real world, of auto mechanics, of black fingernails and gritty toughness. So I kept my fantasies to myself and went to college.
A favorite activity for Mom and me on Sundays was to take a drive in the country

THE STORY OF GA
I was born on a bed of pine needles. I was raised in the slums and
subways of New York City. New York City? Yeah-New York City. I made my
livin' by shakin down people late at night. I ate things that would make a
catfish sick. I shat in toilets that were not fit for the damned. My
belly is as hairy as Chewbacca’s and my teeth make a hillbilly's look
like George Clooney's.
When I was twelve I ran away from Jasper, the nice hobo junkie who raised
me. I didn't want to be a burden to him or Wilbur, his little
hotdog-like dog. I had known for some time that I was destined for greater
things and better sleeping…

would scare me somethin awful. I rarely got a good nights sleep. He would
wake up and yell at the Devil. Sometimes he would spent two hours
