Postcards Received from TURKEY

1114.  Istanbul, Turkey
Dear Chris,   I'm Nurbanu from Istanbul, Turkey.  I love cactus soo much.  I grow cactus and succulents.  They are about 40 different types I have.  Congrats for your new job.  I am jealous of you a little bit :).  Best Wishes, Nurbana

494.  Karabuk / Safranbolu, Turkey
This was in response to a swap card that I sent in May.  This was mailed on May 29th and forwarded from Tucson to Mt. Holly Springs, and it took all this time!

Hello Chris,
Thanks for the very lovely cards you sent me, I especially appreciate the guacamole recipe!  As you may know, letter writing or the post in general is not exactly popular in Turkey so it's quite difficult to get interesting cards.  This is one of the "Safranbolu" , a recent heirtage site popular because of its unique architecture.  It's about four hours awayu from Ankara.
Best wishes, Beren
