15 inches and it is still snowing

And better yet, we still have power! Yeah!

Radio City Music Hall

Getting ready to watch the Rockette's. Beautiful theater.

Crazy girls

Statue of Liberty

Waiting for the metro

Goes against my NYC rule of walking everywhere, but I guess 5 miles may be a bit much.

Fortifying for a day of sightseeing

Enjoying a chocolate croissant at a French patisserie in NYC.

NYC visit

Saw Matilda last night. Fun!

Enjoying Apple tea after our meal in Sirince

Apple tea is the National drink of Turkey. We drove up to this old city on the top of mountain for lunch and the proprietor brought us complimentary apple tea to finish out the meal. Yummy food, too.

More Ephesus

Lots of walking today! The first photo is the Library of Celsus (it was reconstructed by the Austrians in the 1970s to its present condition). Multiple agencies from around the world are contributing to the protection of this site.


We visited this ruined city today. This is the theatre. We were able to climb to the top and take a rest in the seats.

Cooking in Kusadasi

We are fixing up a meal for dinner tonight. Dave and I went to the grocery store and picked up the fixings for a pasta dish. We are crossing our fingers. Nothing like picking out a cheese that looks like feta, but having no idea if it is any good. You'll notice the glass of wine. Dave says you need a glass while bullshitting your way through dinner. Wine is always a good idea. And bread.

Hagia Sophia

After dinner we took a short stroll.

Arrived in Istanbul

We arrived in Istanbul after a 10 hour overnight flight. We boarded at 11:20pm and were served a tasty Turkish delight right after take off. About an hour later we were served a great pasta dish for dinner (and two glasses of wine--because maybe it will help me sleep?) and about four hours later along comes breakfast! Great start to this vacation. We are going to eat our way through.

After checking into our apartment we went for dinner where we had a tasty Meze starter followed by kabobs and Turkish meatballs for dinner. Lots to eat!
