Istanbul is one of the world's great cities that I'd like to see one day. Your photos just reinforce my desire to travel there!


UP IN THE SKY

Look up, my love,
Up, up in the sky!

Look up, my love,
And I’ll tell you why!

Suns and planets
Are wheeling in view;

Ten thousand stars
Are shining for you!

I'm so envious Gattina! What a view!
I'm looking at all those boats out on the water and thinking how nice that would be. Bet someone out on the water as taking a picture back toward your hotel. :)
