Greetings from TURKEY
Merhaba Onder! I was not expecting this card from you and I'm touched by your wish of a Merry Christmas on a "Happy Eid" postcard... whatever the name they give, the important is that we stay together with all our beloved and never let any cultural or religious differences stand in the way of true friendship. Thank you very much my friend and let me be the first to wish you a Happy Eid for you and all your family (in 2014 the Eid is set to July 28th... my birthday!). This postcard took 15 days to arrive!
Turkey is a contiguous transcontinental country, located mostly on Anatolia in Western Asia and on East Thrace in Southeastern Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries: Bulgaria, Greece, Georgia , Armenia, Iran, Iraq and Syria. The Mediterranean Sea is to the south and the Black Sea is to the north. The Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles (which together form the Turkish Straits) demarcate the boundary between Thrace and Anatolia; they also separate Europe and Asia.Turkey's location at the crossroads of Europe and Asia makes it a country of significant Geo-strategic importance.
