All I can say is WOW - Istanbul has bumped Santiago (Chile) as my favorite non-US city. Incredible Greek, Roman, and Islamic history from thousands of years ago featuring incredible architecture and generous people nestled along the Bosphorous River - which separates Asia and Europe - this city has it all! The coolest part is being on the crossroads of East and West - seeing modernity and history peacefully exist in a mutually beneficial manner. What a treat to spend some time here.

Many pictures below (such a cool city that I punted on 'less is more').

Met up with M. Kazmi (Harv MBA and badass Turkey private equity maven) who's been in Istanbul for 2.5 years doing deals. Picture Left.

Met up with Jessica & Gabe (married couple who're friends with Ashley Knecht (wife of JKnecht from UNC). Jessica & Gabe have lived in Istanbul for 1.5 years. Picture Right.
