June 9, 2010

On June 8 we said goodbye to E's parents and their friends.  They headed back to the U.S.  We hopped on a train to Vienna.  The next morning we hopped on an airplane, and several hours later we landed in Istanbul.

I quickly lost track of which mosque was which (they look remarkably similar), but I believe this was outside the New Mosque.  What caught my eye here was the contrast between the beautiful blue tiles, and the pile of junk.  There's a metaphor for Istanbul lurking there, I suspect.
