Istanbul to Constantinople

I want to learn Arabic.  It is everywhere, on every mosque.  The Koran is aesthetically beautiful because of it.  Arabic looks like music sounds and how poetry feels. Back in a big city after two weeks of dead Grecian islands and small tourist towns.... Read more >

So we are still here in Goreme, Cappadocia.  We keep meaning to leave, and we keep deciding to stay one more night.  The 11 hour bus ride to Istanbul will have to wait, and at least we will have dry-ish clothes.  It's kind of nice with no schedules ... Read more >
