19 April 2016 - Istanbul - (1529)

Screen snapshot of pages 8 and 9 from the 'Faces' magazine, February 2016 issue, @ texture.com - "Istanbul"

I am currently reading the February 2016 issue of the 'Faces' magazine via textures.com application. This issue features the city of Istanbul, Turkey. While browsing and reading this issue, I am also indulging in one of my favorite pastimes - "armchair travel" - which might be the default mode of all future travel for this "Old Bones" person. I really like this photo, and I simply had to share it with you.

Even though the Faces magazine is supposedly for adolescents, ages 9 through 14 or so, I consider the content and photography of sufficient quality and breadth and clarity that this magazine might be enjoyed by a much wider age range of human consumers.

Istanbul @ Wikipedia

I provide this snapshot of the Wikipedia entry page for "Istanbul" because it contains a very succinct and informative compendium of facts and information about Istanbul - stuff that was (at least) a refresher for previously learned knowledge, and most likely an easy way to increase my understanding of this beautiful and ancient city.

I share my current "Walter Mitty" adventure with you - a trip to Istanbul - aka Constantinople - aka Byzantium - aka a strange and mysterious destination with significant potential for fun and adventure and discoveries and delicious foods and beverages and beautiful women and ... the list is too long for inclusion herein.

If I succeed in saving four to five thousand dollars, I shall be able to fund a round-trip jet ride to Istanbul, Turkey; a week or so in a nice hotel in Istanbul (room and board hotel); the purchase of a few souvenirs and gifts while in Istanbul.

To Be Continued.
