It’s 1968 and the world is on fire: war in Vietnam, riots in the USA and Europe, but not in Istanbul, where Turks go about their private lives and hippies smoke dope and make love in the Hippodrome. But the fire soon spreads to Turkey with plots to destroy the country’s greatest treasures. Can they succeed?
Follow the adventures of the wild hippies, diplomats, drug lords, tourists and US Peace Corps Volunteers in Istanbul, Edirne, Cappadocia, Konya, Ephesus, Troy and beyond—right up to the final cataclysm.
Istanbul Love Bus & the A- Bomb Surprise
A rollicking adventure inside Istanbul and Turkey by a Turkey expert. It brought back memories of Istanbul before its modernization when the ancient city was slowly being discovered by intrepid travelers and wide eyed Peace Corps Volunteers. I know. I was one of those PCVs who shared many hours with the author in Izmir and Istanbul. Tom, thanks for the memories.
