Long Overdue Notes

I seem to have forgotten how to blog from the phone. I would have preferred a laptop to make a mention on this blog. However, that's not happening anytime soon. I'm back in Istanbul after spending a good 8 days in Central and Western Turkey. My plan now is to walk around this city, take... Continue Reading →

Notes to Self
