Pirate in the Phils

I'm going to stop talking about pirates, I promise! But Pepi's father sent me this photo from Manila where three-year-old Pepi is out on the town dressed as Captain Hook.

Judging by his costume, adults have been heavily involved--a clue as to why the trend is so wide-spread. Parents like pirates, too!

What to wear in Turkey

Topkapi Palace,
Nothing new,
Girls wear pink,
And boys wear blue.

Double fun for a double holiday

Istanbul experienced both New Year's and Eid at the same time this year. That's why kid treats were prominent right next to the liquor section in this small supermarket just up the street from the ferry dock in Kadikoy.

Here's a premium within a premium. The hollow eggs carry toys inside them--and now their outside is a pirate ship toy, too.

Note that this year's ubiquitous Pirates have traveled into the Bosphorous.
