As I read the latest installment of "around the world in 80 days," I couldn't help but think about my own adventure in Turkey.
I spent the months of Jan 01 - Aug 01 working in Istanbul, and living on the asian side. I shared a flat on the best/most trendy street on that side of town. I loved the culture, and the lifestyle. I made great friends, had great times, and bought 3 great carpets. Ahh - the good old days!
