About This Item

This Travel Bug is a Turkish "nazar-boncuk" (pronounced "bonjuk"), or "Evil-Eye amulet," which is supposed to ward off the dangerous effects of the Evil Eye. I got it as a souvenir in Istanbul, where it accompanied me on my successful effort to be First-To-Find for the new cache "Lover's Lane" in Gulhane Park outside Topkapi Palace.

The name comes from the lyrics of a 1950s novelty song: "You can't go back to Constantinople, 'cause it's Istanbul, not Constantinople!"

    During a nice round of caches, i've found this trackable...
    I will take it to it's new location in the near future.

    Tijdens een gezellig cachedagje kwam ik deze trackable tegen...
    Ik zal hem binnenkort in een andere cache achterlaten.

    Happy caching,
    Good journey!
