    Nice series, Nick! I particularly like the first bridge shot. The floor level cistern shot is pretty cool too.

    What's with the scaffolding in Hagia Sophia? I noticed it in Tom's shots from March as well.

    love the pictures, but i thought the title was meant to be ironic and sarcastic given that there are large scale riots there now.....

    The title has nothing to do with the riots, it's just a continuation of my previous thread which was 'the quiet folk of Istanbul'. We're down south in Kas at the moment and haven't seen anything of the trouble, although I'll be watching events in Antalya closely...

    Take care of yourselves, and come back in one piece. I hope to go to Istanbul someday too...( as I have spent most of my undergrad career studying this beautiful place)

    Antalya is an amazing place. Enjoy, Nick!

    I know you're mostly hiking, but the museum there is pretty amazing. There was a lovely walk along the cliffs near my hotel there. It was my first real look at the Mediterranean.
