A young Egyptian girl from Cairo and members of her family all met in Istanbul for a reunion (It was an Islamic holiday.)...She is playing Ochi Tchorniye (the popular gypsy song known as Black or Dark Eyes).
Sometime after we visited Cyprus the memory card from my camera fell out so all pictures that I had taken before we visited Crete were lost. Fortunately, I was able to replace the card at the photo shop on board Crystal Serenity.
