Last Stand in Istanbul

We landed in Istanbul yesterday and hit the streets and ferries and tram and trains and restaurants and mosques and churches and palaces and beds. Whew. It's amazing what you can pack in a day with great leaders. Steve has been dubbed "Sultan U" and we have all learned to dodge traffic like old pros while trying to keep up with him.

Today we visited the BLue Mosque, the Sultan's Palace and the Hagia Sophia. I've included a random selection of images so you can get the feel for the city life, the places and the food. 

We'll be home Sunday night. I'll be signing off for now, wishing you delightful dreams until we return home. Pray for a safe journey for us, and that Sultan U leads us into traffic without harm :)

See you all Sunday!
