In Istanbul. What an amazing city, every time I come here I am still amazed, at its size, modernity, ancient history, architecture and scenery, not to mention the food.
The first day, had anxiety attacks, almost to the point of panic. Ah yes, you can leave the place behind, but you cannot leave your brain behind. powered through them though, after spending all morning sobbing in my room, went about the rest of the day with aplomb, hahaha.
Today, I feel fine. Maybe it was the time change that brought on the anxiety. Still have many periods of dizziness, that’s how I manifest jet lag. oh and I have a sinus infection, rare for me, and luckily I was able to get Zithromax without a prescription, don’t need one in Turkey. So, I am hoping that my sinus headache will be gone in a day or two.
On the positive side, Istanbul is beautiful, the Bosphorus is a deep blue, the weather is perfect and it is lovely to be with my family here, in this gorgeous city.
