Europe Snapshots: Day 4

Today was a very full day with plenty of walking.  We started off with a delicious traditional Turkish breakfast and made our way through some historic sights.  As we walked I couldn’t help but stop every few minutes just to take a picture of all the buildings nestled in together.  It’s so different from where I’m from in Iowa where we generally build out instead of up.  I find it strangly beautiful.

    I found 5 on the motorcycle picture – is that right, or did I miss some?

    That’s right! 5 cats! It’s not strange just to see two or three cats together. And you can’t go long without seeing a cat walking around or basking in the sun.
