    I have been in Istanbul (!!!) for the last week. I’m in Athens now, but I’ll be back to Stambol in a few days. A very, very good place to think about what’s important, and what’s transient. I’m completely smitten by the city, and I’m in tourist euphoria, so consider the source. But America could learn one helluva lot from this cosmic city. The history, the people — it’s beyond words….

All sorts of endless, intrusive ‘help’. Here’s my fave thing so far: I’ve got a nice photo of the Blue Mosque and the Aya Sofia, and I’d like to use it as my desktop background.
