Dec 14, 2005 - Istanbul, Turkey

Unfortunately because of logistics, and even more because of the fact that all flights were cancelled out of Cairo I was not able to attend the launch in Istanbul as originally planned. After many hours and several trips to the airport over a 14 hour period I finally landed in Istanbul at 6:00 pm just in time to hit rush hour traffic. I arrived home just after 7:00 pm with just enough time to wash my laundry and sleep for a few hours before departing again for the airport again at 2:00 am.
