Büyükada (meaning "Big Island" in Turkish; Greek: Πρίγκηπος or Πρίγκιπος, pr. Pringipos: in some cases Pringipo; and alternatively Πρίγκηψ or Πρίγκιψ (pr. Pringips) meaning "Prince" or "Foremost"; the Latin princeps) is the largest of the nine so-called Princes' Islands in the Sea of Marmara, near Istanbul.
As on the other islands, motorized vehicles – except service vehicles – are forbidden, so visitors explore the island by foot, bicycle, in horse-drawn carriages, or by riding donkeys.

Happy Birthday Clementine...

Yesterday was my birthday.  I have been so humbled by the phone calls, text messages, emails, and Facebook comments wishing me a happy day. But what am I to personally make of my birthday?  How "important" of a day was this? I won't tell you:)
