Istanbul

I've been working on a movie/slide-show of the trip my parents took last year with their friends. Istanbul was their first stop and their photos are so rich! It has that alluring eastern European quality. One of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, Istanbul is a mega-city that extends on both the European and Asian sides of the Bosphorus Straight, making it the only city that is located on two continents!

Thank you for stopping by earlier. So here I am on yours and it made me almost cry! ;)
The first thing I see ISTANBUL. :) Love the city, and so want to go back again. I have family there so it's part home to me! Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures. Hope your parents loved the city. It amazes me each time I go back.
