Any one see From Russia with Love or Inferno?

This morning had a slow start to what would turn into a day we walked more than 10 mile!  First up was a scene pulled from the movie From Russia with Love and Dan Brown’s last book – The DSC_3301underground cisterns of Istanbul, Basilica Cistern.  Jake was reliving the moments of the book and me the movie as we made our way down and through the underground into a truly mysterious place.  DSC_3310Build by the Romans in 532 AD with recycled columns from pagan temples, it was made it even more interesting when we saw the upside down Medusa head and all the fish swing around.  We ended our adventure underground with a glass of fresh squeezed pomegranate juice as we marveled over the engineering.

About JSH

There are more than 195 countries in the world by my count and I want to see them all before they all start to look the same – The United Nations has 192 members, but they do not recognized two independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo. U.S. Department of State recognizes 194 independent countries around the world, but their list has a political agenda and is missing Taiwan. All of this is without getting into the dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes called “countries” such as Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) and without counting states and provinces like Texas and Montréal that think they are independent countries. No madder how you count or tag them they are changing, starting to look the same and losing a little bit of themself every day. I do not want to see the world through the eyes of Las Vegas or Disney, like reading the Cliff Notes of a Hemingway novel; you get the idea but miss the point! Life is short, but how long live is up to you…
