We are trying to use a different restaurant everyday to sign up for an internet fix. Today it's Musto's opposite the marina. We are sitting outside,with the dog under the table, listening to the rain splattering the sun awning above our heads. We've already had coffee and if this rain keeps up,we'll have an excuse to stay for one of their great burgers.

A massive storm on Sunday evening knocked out our electricity and communications. The lightning was so violent that planes were unable to land at Bodrum airport and were diverted to Izmir. I had considered travelling on Sunday so I'm extremely thankful that I came back earlier. Our power came back but we are still without phone and internet. I'd hoped to write about the Global Run on Sunday but that will have to wait as the photos are on the desk top. One silver lining in the lack of an internet cloud is that I've not been distracted from reading my book club novel. "The Luminaries" by Eleanor Catton is over 800 pages and I'm 75 % through it. I'm still trying to convince myself that it's a worthy Man Brooker prize winner, but it feels a bit of a slog. I hope the last 25% is a killer.
