On my way to Ethiopia for the second time this fall, I had the opportunity to spend an afternoon in Istanbul, Turkey.  Here are a few photos from our time in the Old City…

I have just landed back in Istanbul again this morning and am thrilled to be able to stay here for the coming week 🙂  More photos from this trip, as well as our time in Ethiopia, coming soon!

Many thanks, as always, for reading… xojl
