Day 83: Adios Istanbul

Well when it rains it pours!  That’s sure what happened in Istanbul the evening I left – and it was their first rain in 4 1/2 months!!!  It was a HUUUUGE thunderstorm, the streets turned into muddy rivers, and I had two bolts of lightning strike less than 50m away from me – yikes!

After the storm passed the sky had that wonderful ethereal glow about it with the backdrop of the storm clouds, and while I was waiting for my bus to leave I was able to snap off some cool pics around the obelisk and the Blue Mosque.  Check ’em out…  Love the different colours!
