Vacation 2011: Turkey!

In April 2011, we spent three weeks in the Republic of Turkey exploring ancient ruins, tramping through the WW I battlefields on the Gallipoli peninsula, gorging on fresh strawberries and cheese at the farmers markets, chatting with locals, and being struck speechless (like most visitors) by the beauty of İstanbul. The six galleries correspond to our major stops.
