I'm in Switzerland for a while in my company's offices while we work out the details for Istanbul, I don't know yet when I'm going, where I'm staying or how long I'll be there, but I anticipate spending most of the rest of this year and a good part of next year as well. I'm so excited to explore some place new.
When I started this blog nearly 4 years ago, my goal was to keep a record of my life in Delhi (I regret not having any real record of my two years in Rio.) I'm excited to get back to the core of that goal and use this blog to record my adventures and discoveries in a new place and culture. While, I've LOVED having a year at home and I adored last year and its opportunity to live and work in Lexington KY, I'm thrilled to once again be an expat and experience life in Istanbul.
Have you been to Istanbul/Turkey? I'd love to hear what places I should see and things I should do. I should have used the past few weeks to do research - but I haven't, I think I was afraid of jinxing things if I got to serious in my planning.
There is really only one song that can go on this post: Istanbul (not Constantinople) - this version is by They Might Be Giants.
