Istanbul

I’m following in the footsteps of another, sadly long silent, blogger* by announcing that I am now in Istanbul when everyone expects me to be in the Russian Far East.  I’m here for a couple of days business trip, but with the flight schedule in and out of Sakhalin I’ll be here a week, giving me a few days to see the city.  I’ve taken a camera with me, I’ll put some pictures up at some point, and maybe even write something.

*By the way, whatever happened to Patrick?  I still get nostalgic for the days when he was wandering Siberia and I was planning my first trip to Tatarstan.

    Last time heard from him in April (presumably from Pacific NW); he mentioned in the e-mail “In case you didn’t know, we’re planning to bike from Amsterdam to Istanbul in a year. (I’m putting it in writing so I can be shamed when it doesn’t happen.)”. Last communication

    Will wait for the photos of Stambul; have fun!

    Hello? Tim? Anybody home?
    “Couple of days” doesn’t mean couple of years, is it now?

    Istanbul is a creepy place…

    Argh! I know I know I’ve been bone idle!

    I’ve been back ages, was quite underwhelmed by Istanbul and couldn’t be bothered writing much about it. Besides, work and social life here have been rather hectic, as is normal for Sakhalin.

    I’ll put a post up with some pictures over the weekend.
