Turkey Travelogue - The End.

Five months, 40+ blog posts, and more hours than I care to admit later, I am finally finished the Turkey Travelogue. As I worked on this series, I kept thinking of the saying I read on a t-shirt in Topkapi Palace--"it's not the hours you put in, it's what you put into the hours." I tried to convince myself that what I was learning made it all worthwhile. At any rate, it is done. Here is the final "Index":
