Oh, yeah,


Briefly, because it's late and I have to go to bed; Nice to be away from the kid for a few days.

Our view of the Blue Mosque from the roof deck of our hotel.

The Hagya Sofiya - Was a church built in the 6th century, became a mosque in the 14th century, now a museum. and very cool all around.

We did lots of this. Tea and Baklava.

It was a nice change to be able to leave the hotel in the morning, wander all day with stops for tea, beer, snacks, whatnot whenever we wanted, and no need to search out baby-changing tables, playgrounds, and whatnot. While we didn't exactly miss the kid, we were both ready to see him by the time we rolled back into Kyiv on Monday. He is pretty cute, afterall.

More later.

After hearing about your trip I keep singing that They Might Be Giants song over and over in my head... "why did Constantinople get the works? That's no bodys business but the Turks'!".....
