My ankle is finally, finally almost healed. A torn ligament is not a quick fix! Last week was the first week that my ankle felt normal… it’s been weeks and weeks! Slowly, I am getting my walks back in.

I love walking. It gives me peace of mind and time to think. I walked home from Turkish class last week and this morning, I went for a beautiful walk around Istanbul. Early Sunday mornings are a great time to see Istanbul because there are no crowds and fewer cars barreling around. Plus, we are having remarkably good weather so it is absolutely lovely. I even stopped and had a coffee just to enjoy the sun and peace of the morning. I do love this city.

Next, high heels. A girl needs to have some goals!
