The Squire vacations in Turkey

JUST ARRIVED—The Rockford Squire appears in Istanbul, Turkey’s Grand Bazaar in late summer 2010, transported by Ron and Linda Denhof of Rockford. The Grand Bazaar is the oldest, largest covered market in the world, offering exciting experiences bargaining for carpets, silks and exotics.

The Denhofs, with their son John and his family, sailed the Aegean Sea along the Turkish coastline for a week. They also explored the mosques, palace, mausoleums and the ruins of the only remaining “Ancient Wonders of the World” in Instanbul and Bodrum. A belly-dance show completed a grand time amongst the friendly people of Turkey.
