Istanbul. June, 2007

As I write this, police and protesters are battling not far from where this picture was taken exactly six years earlier. A country in transition, taking its cue from other fed-up nations nearby over the past few seasons. How different on that morning, Nick and I visiting Istanbul for the first time, enjoying our first Turkish breakfast in a tiny square currently filled with tear gas, rubber bullets, water cannons.
