I have been swamped with guests in-laws in town and miss Eliza from Australia in for the weekend, so I did not get a chance to prep any posts for this week. I’m stealing time between chores and life things and work and sleep to get a few things down.
First I saw this article on the internet (and by internet I mean… facebook) the other day. The beginning got me and sent me into panic mode:
If things go according to plan, in about a month someone at Nestle Waters North America will turn a valve and water will begin running out of a pipeline near Buena Vista and will splash into an empty 8,000-gallon tanker truck. It will take roughly an hour for the truck to fill, and then another truck will take its place. The water will run 24 hours a day, filling approximately 25 trucks each day, every day.
Protesters opposed to the 10-year rule of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that he may have driven them from central Istanbul’s Gezi Park, which they had occupied for more than two weeks, but that he could not arrest them for standing still. More than a thousand people trickled into Taksim Square throughout the day, staring silently at a massive portrait of the country’s founding father that security forces hung last week on a building.
