Final Scenes from Istanbul, Turkey (April 25-27, 2008)

Istiklal Caddesi's famous street car
Marble columns rise from the water of the Basilica Cisterns, built in the 6th century to supply water to the Byzantium palaces. The cistern measures 140m long by 70m wide and held water transported by aqueduct from the nearby Belgrad forest.
Colorful pottery for sale in the Grand Bazaar, Istanbul's large covered market. The Grand Bazaar has everything from gold bars to turkish delight.
A classic red simit stand
Tulips were in bloom all over Istanbul
