Krista and I leave today for Istanbul. We'll be gone a week. It's a modern city with lots of internet hookups. I think. So don't worry, you'll get updates.
In the meantime, you should check out the Istanbul live traffic cams. Don't let the turkish instructions fool you, just click on the links on the right side of the page. And I promise that if I see any traffic cameras while I am in Istanbul, I will stop and wave. So you just might see us if you click the right camera at the right moment.
And, for your reading pleasure, here's wikipedia's Istanbul article.
See ya soon!
