We've been having some trouble accessing the blog from Turkey - yep, that's where we are right now! - and so we're using this as an excuse to go out and have fun, and blog about it later.
The reason behind it is a current legal battle about football games (apparently illegally?) broadcast through someone's blog, resulting in a nationwide shutdown of the blogger service. Rather than the blog or the update page, we would just see a Turkish legal message. Now, for the first time since our first day in Istanbul, I can at least upload something, if not view it.
Anyway, updates will come online later ... and in the meantime, we'll be out enjoying ourselves.
