Taksim Istanbul

6:35 AM – Istiklal Avenue in Taksim, the most modern boulevard in Istanbul; I am very familiar with this destination. Paranoid. In less than a week, two suicide bombers hit central cities in Turkey where my son is traveling. At the beginning of the new year in January, a suicide bomber killed 11 tourists from Germany in central Istanbul. If I were visiting Turkey without the threat to my life, Istanbul is the first city I would visit because of all its vast archeology. The museums and landmarks all historic throughout the region, but this terror is becoming such an intense worry.
