Yeah, it's far away, eight time zones ahead of where I live! It's a great art city, and well, I'm an artist (a visual artist). It's got the most beautiful buildings, has great museums, and well, the restaurants seem to be pretty cool as well, I'll have to hit some of the pastry shops.

I know people who've been there. Turkey's never really interested me too much, but I can see why it would interest others. Lot's of history there!

The shopping is supposed to be excellent, too. That's the main reason my sister and I want to go.

My friend brought me one of the evil eye charms back and I never take it off.

Actually it's interesting about the name change. The Turks did not immediately change the name of the city when they took it in 1453. They called it "Konstantinye", and no one knows the exact origin of the name "Istanbul". I have looked for dates for the name change and there's not a precise date.
