Istanbul in pictures – a make up post

The other day I posted about our day in Istanbul, but got extremely frustrated when the Internet Gods would not allow me to upload any pictures.  As I now sit in Kusadasi, the internet is smiling on me.  So instead of sleeping (it is 3:50 Sunday morning here while I write this), I will attempt to bring this up to date.  Here is a link to the original post on Istanbul if you missed it.

    Again, I feel I’ve been there. Thanks for letting me live vicariously through you both. Places that perhaps I will never get to see, I feel fortunate to, in a way, traveled there. Just as books take me places I’ve not experienced, I gain the same insight, beauty, emotions, and knowledge through your blog.
    I appreciate you.
