Some of you have requested pictures of our home...this is the outside of our building... We live on the fourth floor. Three other teachers and our friend Entela also live in the building. Our landlords live on the bottom. Their dog Mariah guards the place. We'll have to get a picture of Mariah. Stay tuned. You can see our community garden on the right which is filled with persimmon and orange trees and grape vines.

Last week we had the luxury of a five-day weekend so we headed to Istanbul with some families and staff from the school. We filled up on amazing Turkish street food and fresh squeezed juices, shopped until we dropped, and visited a few important cultural relics. Here's Amy being drowned out by the Blue Mosque. Luckily we made it out of town a day ahead of the Pope's controversial visit.
