I had the opportunity to travel to Turkey in May 2013. My good friend Larry Calof and I joined a National Geographic Expedition that lasted for 12 days. We had great time, saw lots of very interesting stuff and learned many things about the history and culture of the area that had been skipped over in school. It wasn’t as photographically oriented as we had hoped, but it was very enjoyable. Our guides and fellow travelers were great. Here’s a slideshow I put together from the trip. We were fortunate that we returned home about a week before the riots and demonstrations started in Turkey.
Edit 5/3/14: I finally got around to posting the Turkey images.
