bu resim bana çocukluðumu hatýrlattý. çünkü dört ayaklý minare nin hemen yanýnda ki evde doðdum. tam karþýsýndaki fýrýn bizimdi. caným memleketim. bu þehri anlamak ve tanýmak için gençlik arkadaþým A. Kadri Göral'ýn Küçe Kapýsý kitabýný herkesin okumasý gerek

Dear Mehmet,

Thank you, I have adjusted the text. I know the difference between feet and a bed, even in Turkish (I always ask a "tek yatakli oda" or single-bed room in hotels (and then often get a twin bed room for the same price). I must have been sleepy when I typed this. As for the suggestion to visit the castle you mentioned elsewhere, I'll think of it when I get in the neighbourhood, thank you.

Görüsürüz,
Dick Osseman

First of all, i want to thank you for Diyarbakir.
Name of minare in this picture is "Dört AYAKLI minare". Yatakli means bed in turkish.
