We had a great day visiting the sites of Istanbul. The city is important in secular and church history. A few of us spent almost the entire day in the marvelous Archaeological Museum. I made more than 500 hi-res digital photos today. Tonight at dinner we celebrated a birthday and an anniversary. Not enough time to post any photos, but will plan to do that later.
As the group returns home I will be departing for Eastern Turkey with three friends. We will spend a week in that part visiting some of the important Old Testament sights.
We probably will not have Internet access tomorrow night from Mount Ararat, but we may have access the following night. I will post some notes whenever possible. Keep checking back.
