I've got a challenge for you... look at this photo and try to guess where we are (click it for a bigger version). It's difficult. If I hadn't been there, I'd be stumped.
One of the Christmas gifts my parents gave us this year was an invitation to go on a trip with them. My dad said, "I know we're old, and when I was your age I probably wouldn't have wanted to go one vacation with my parents, but we would enjoy taking an adventure with you and Annette." Who could turn down that invitation?! So thank you, Mom and Dad, for a great adventure.
(correct answer: Istanbul...not Constantinople)
