Months Have Turned Into Weeks!!!

   The countdown has begun...... 19 days until I will be on a plane heading for Istanbul, Turkey!  I have been getting more and more excited as the days have been getting closer to departure!  I find myself searching pictures on the Internet of the places we will be seeing and getting butterflies in stomach!  Some of the breath taking photos I have been finding on Google Images are of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and pictures of various markets.  I still can not wrap my mind around the thought that in a matter of a weeks I will be in the same place as those photos!  At first I was not overly excited about Turkey and did not know what to expect, but as I learn more from our books, and surfing the Internet I am so glad we are going.  I never knew of the art and beauty of Turkey until now.  It is amazing how preconceived notions one has of a place because of the lack of knowledge.
