Greetings from Istanbul

Here’s wishing you a cup of Turkish Coffee. Joshua Rowe and I had a safe and uneventful flight to Istanbul, arriving this morning about 10:15. The cab driver dropped us off about a half-mile short of our hotel, but we managed to find it without too much problem. After a brief rest, we went exploring. Over the next few days I’d like to blog about the significance of Istanbul to church history; but for now here are some pictures from our afternoon of exploration.
