So… I’m off to Istanbul, Turkey in the morning. One of the awesomest cities in this world. I’ve been to many awesome cities so I feel like I know what I talk about when I say Istanbul is A-MA-ZING. And, for the first time that I can remember, I’m going to treat it as a real holiday and go cyber-quiet. Maybe I’ll have some good stories to share when I get back.

In the meantime, here are some photos from my first visit to Istanbul, almost exactly 1 decade ago. I was on a day-long layover returning from the U.S. to Syria and decided to tour the city, hence the odd angled photo of me.

I hope you have a happy week, and please keep praying for Syria with me.
