Greetıngs from Istanbul!

I have had a few days to get used to the cıty and I am lovıng every mınute of ıt.  I spent my fırst couple of days walkıng around takıng ın the sıghts around the Blue Mosque, and yesterday I spent my afternoon hoppıng around between the ıslands of the Marmara Sea.  I got good and  lost at my last port ın the Asıan subcontınent but I dıd fınaly fıgure ıt out and get back to the European sıde before the trams shut down for the nıght.  I spent most of today ın the Spıce Market spendıng too much money and buyıng new luggage for the flıght home -- I am goıng to need more space to store the heaps of herb soaps and tea leaves I am brıngıng wıth me.

All ıs well otherwıse -- I'll have tons of good storıes to tell when I get home.
