-----------------------Earthquake Season, Whoo-hoo!
So lets see...this past week there was bomb, a train crash, and two earthquakes. You gotta love august. I figure its high time that we came up with an extreme sport for earthquakes. We average about two big ones a years, and the last two weren't big ones. One of the earthquakes (and its aftershocks) happened in Bodrum (across Kos) where I went recently.
As for the bomb in Istanbul, the PKK/Kurdish rebels angle is a little more believable at this point since the hotel in question had a unusual number of Iranian tourists...Iran, as I recall, launched a PKK offensive recently.
The sense of alarm this has caused: hardly any. But then again, it always looks worse from the outside
