Blogging and still learning how WordPress works and how my iPad works and how I work on a 10 hour time difference. This is a learning curve that has passed over the Artic Circle and landed in an exotic ecstasy. Yes, Virginia, I mean Byzantium, Constantinople, Istanbul. I mean colors, sounds, tastes: the blues of sea, air, and evil eyes, the tastes of honey, smells of coffee, the cries of the muezzin from the ubiquitous minarets.
We can’t sleep, it’s too exciting. We walk until we’re hobbling, we stay up late into our night (that’s 11:30 for us!) we wake at 3am and talk and search the next day’s route for cafes and shops and museum hours. Dawn cannot come quickly enough.
