Istanbul Photos If you love Istanbul like I do, and can't visit often enough, this is a fine place to get a virtual glimpse of all of it.

Thanks! We were in Istanbul in October and already wishing we could go back for another visit. I'm enjoying looking through the Istanbul albums.

"You ever been to 'Stambul?"
"Couple days, once."
"Never changes" she said. "Bad old town."

Good timing! I'm reading The Museum of Innocence and it's awesome to have some visuals to go with Pamuk's descriptions of Istanbul. Thanks!

Wow. It's been almost 15 years since I visited, and these took me right back. I was surprised how taken I was with Turkey, both in Istanbul and in much more rural areas. I've urged countless other people to include it in their travels and never heard a bad word back. Thanks for reviving some great memories.
