President Obama was in Turkey last week, and he came to my neighborhood!
My camera was on the fritz, so I couldn't get a good picture of him, but Mel got this picture as he pulled into Sultanahmet square. We got a good view from the nearby "Seven Hills" hotel's Terrace. (Yup, we stood next to Turkish military snipers!)
Later we watched as he walked between Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque, but we didn't get a good enough picture of it. Next time!
I'd like to write more about it, but Mel has put together a great article about it, so I'll link to that when she's ready.
