    Good morning, Vagabonds. @Florchi, I got to Ft Lauderdale yesterday for the Turkish festival and enjoyed it. Fortunately, a friend drove me to Aventura, where I got the No. 1 Broward bus – that saved me a lot of time as the Miami-Dade County No. 3 bus is a loong route. The No. 1 bus also took a long time – I never realized that Downtown Ft Lauderdale is very far north of Ft Lauderdale Airport. My stop was only a short walk from the festival, but I was disapointed that I didn’t see the flowers that Las Olas Blvd. is famous for.

    Aside from the music and the freebies (I got a Koran in English – I will try to read it again, I didn’t understand it when I read it the 1st time) and also the eye to ward off the the evil eye as well as some CDs or DVDs about Turkey – I met a Kirghiz couple who had just come to the US 2 months ago. I knew he was Kirghiz because of the distinctive fur hat he was wearing – I sent the photo to those Vagabonds whose emails I have and I will need help in putting the photos on my Facebook. but the photo of the Kirghiz couple I shouldn’t put on my Facebook for the sake of the Kirghiz’s privacy.

    Since they couldn’t speak English and I can’t speak Russian, I made my Turkish sound like Kirghiz and was able to communicate with them.

    Then a member of the Mevlana (the whirling dervishes) did a dance which I photographed. I was fortunate to meet a Peruvian family who spoke Quechua (I love all these rarely-spoken languages and feel badly that they are dying) who live near me and drove me home – a good thing because I would’ve been too tired to go home by bus – I was tired anyway.

    Good morning, Vagabonds.

    Arye, it sounds like you had a wonderful time. Sometimes I think you can make an adventure out of almost any situation (kind of like Slim in his younger days).

    We took a long drive out to Pahrump today. Had a very enjoyable day together and won $600 in the casino out there. Woo Hoo!

    Always pays to win in the casino, Jan.

    Morning, Village.
    Anybody else watching the Bible on TV? It’s really a great presentation.

    Sounds like you had a great time and how lucky to get a ride home with the Peruvian family! If the privately funded Miami – Orlando All Aboard rail service is operating on the FEC tracks next year as planned, then getting from Miami to downtown Fort Lauderdale will be easier and faster. Of course, this will be a high-speed express train and not a local, so for your use I guess it will depend on where they locate the Miami station(s). This train will run on the tracks that go through the downtown areas – Tri-Rail runs on the CSX tracks that are much further west.

    Yes, I’ve been watching it. I record it to watch later, so I haven’t seen last night’s episode yet, but the first two were well done. A little bit truncated and some drama added for the sake of the visuals, but overall well done and enjoyable. The producers are Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel) and her husband.

    Good Morning, Vagabonds,

    We got another inch of snow overnight. Got down to 16 during the night, and is all the way up to 20 right now. BRRRRRRRRRRR!! Oh well, for the last 2 weeks we had 50’s and 60’s, so we bundle up again. :))

    Tanks for the pictures, Arye. Glad you had such a great time at the festival.

    @FLORCHI: But I didn’t see any blossoms on the trees while I walked on las Olas Street.

    @Arye Uygur

    Have you seen the purple blossoms in that area before? There are not a lot of jacaranda trees around…perhaps they are finished blooming for this year (after our rather warm winter). That’s all I can offer.

    @Montana Lady
    Thank you for the birthday wishes. I don’t feel any older. We are getting ready to go out to eat in a short while then come home to await the storm hat is supposed to start this evening. They don’t know whether we will have 4 to 8 inches or some snow turning to rain. We will just have to see what develops.
