last week i sneezed tortilla chips through my nose...

definitely not my finest moment of the week, but it made the highlight reel.

remember that one time i went to turkey and greece? here's what else happened (unedited photos -- this just needs to be finished):

discussing "mehmet okur."


europe on the left, asia on the right.


hagia sofia.


the blue mosque.


pretty istanbul.










i loved this night market in istanbul. the hanging lightbulbs were fun, and the colors were pretty.


hot dogs as a pizza topping.


save water. flush twice.


now in athens.  protesters protesting the man.


look closely; you can see the man.







ruins, ruins everywhere.




a scrumptious greek feast.




on the acropolis, the parthenon and friends.










afghani men taking pictures with my son.


japanese women taking pictures with my son. 



a mother's day brunch with an acropolytic (word?) view.


temple of poseidon.




fox's favorite part of the trip.



homeward bound.
