|Our grandparents in front of the Yeni Camii in Eminonu.|
Sightseeing in the city with grandparents is quite different from my normal jam-packed schedule.
You rethink everything you know. And question how much walking is too much.
You go slower. You help them maneuver through the crowded, chaotic streets of Istanbul.
You take taxis as often as possible to eliminate too much walking. Grandpa says he's never taken this many taxis in 20 years.
My husband's grandparents are enjoying their time here, and just grumble a bit about the traffic and the erratic taxi drivers. I don't blame them.
I can only hope that when we are 82 or 89 like them we are still traveling around the world too!
(Hope this brief post explains why I've been kinda quiet the past week or so. Cheers!)
