Tips, comments and warnings for women traveling in Turkey.
I am writing this in May 2008 and all I can say is .. "You go Girl!". I am a 64 year old grandmother of eleven .. my sons will tell you that I marched in the 70's for Women's Rights and I now plan to share your insights with each of my grandaughters! You are entirely and exactly right on .. I could not have said it better. I have traveled for years with my husband and also have traveled extensively alone. In my day I was a "looker" but when I traveled alone .. I was never bothered .. it is ALL in your demeanor. I needn't repeat anything .. because you said it all! Men will treat you as you demand to be treated .. IF you are in a country where women have legal rights.
