    • I am happy to have gone there before all these political movements and instability in Turkey. On my trip I have witnessed some procession of protest too. The trip itself was amazing.

  1. Hello Michael-

    I love this picture and just regret that I did not take any photos when I was there in 2007 on a cruise.

    I think the book Angels and Demons ended the story there too.

    Love the history.

    As Ever,



  2. Me too! I so want to go back there, and I live a 4 hour flight from Istanbul. But every time I want to visit something happens, and we get a bit wary.
    My Turkish colleague keeps saying itโ€™s nothing. But then sheโ€™s from there.
