Blog break

We will be in Florida tomorrow thru Monday to visit an ailing relative. While there I will try to create some free time for snail watching and I hope to return with lots of good photographs.

Regular postings will resume on Tuesday.

Enjoy the hot weather.

Hello,
Sorry this isn't related to your post...Do you mind telling me how you pronounce your first name? And hope your relative is feeling better.

AYDIN ÖRSTAN said...

The Turkish "A" is pronounced like "I" in English. The "i" in Aydin is actually the infamous undotted "i" of Turkish, the sound of which is difficult to explain, but I tihnk it comes closest to the sound of the "e" in "nickel". So, Aydin sort of rhymes with Haydn, but without the "H" sound, of course.
