hello from istanbul!
we have been here for almost a week and are starting to feel comfortable. it’s a big (and tough) change. but a good one, i think.
so far, we’ve visited the sultanahmet mosque (above) and taksim square, encountered two demonstrations, watched the ferries and container ships, and tried lots of delicious food. and we have learned a few more words in turkish.
here’s to a good second week.
