Cruising the Mediterranean Islands

Dear David – Thought I would just drop you a card from Istanbul. We arrived here this afternoon and will begin return voyage tomorrow noon. We had a trip to Baozar this afternoon. I bought 2 dolls. We have really enjoyed this cruise and have seen many interesting things in the Islands between here and Athens. Will stop at Delos and Myponos on return trip. Our sightseeing in Athens will begin when we return there Monday. I will get the Wari beads for you. Have seen hundreds. Wish I knew what color you want.

Love Mother

    “I will get the Wari beads for you.” Actually, I think we called them Worry Beads. I learned about then from my Old Testament professor, Dr. Beck. He had taught at the American University in Cairo. The beads were actually an Islamic version of the rosary…if memory serves me correctly. People commonly carried them so that, at any given time, they could count their recited prayers.

    It’s great, so many years later, to learn (again) about the details of their famous round-the-world trip.
