Photos from Istanbul

Friday, June 14
I'm in Copenhagen this week attending a conference at the University of Copenhagen called "Growth: Critical Perspectives from Asia."
It's quite awesome, to tell you the truth, and I'll probably put up some photos from here pretty soon.
For now, though, I thought I'd post some shots that I took over the past couple of weeks in Istanbul. While those of you out in the Borderlands know that I've been writing a lot about the events taking place there lately, I thought I'd take a break from that to remind people that there's more to life than political strife in Istanbul, the prettiest city in the world. 
If you want to see Gezi Park photos, look at this post or else check out my album in the Borderlands Lounge.
