… And here we are

by on June 25, 2013

The trip to Istanbul went just fine; we were very jealous of people in first class whose seats turned into flat beds…. maybe someday we will indulge in that.

We found our apartment on a little tiny street and it’s very nice (by Istanbul standards) and right in the heart of the old district with the famous sights. We are tired and grumpy and the kids are already beginning to ask complex questions about Islam, secular vs Islamic governments, Kemal Ataturk (Turkey’s George Washington whose picture is everywhere) etc.

The kids are also learning about not-quite-first-world countries…. Drinking bottled water and wishing the Internet was faster.

10 hour time difference causes serious jet lag… time for a nap! We’re warned that the 6am call to prayer will wake us up.

    And so it did…wakey, wakey at the crack of dawn. Just what you desire on Day 1.
