6 Airports, 3 Continents,Lost Luggage.. All Worth it

Travelling with Daniel ( to Istanbul for a video shoot he was directing was exhausting and exhillarating.
Daniel is developing into a first rate film maker. In fact, he is way beyond his years in vision, precision and 
editing execution.  In the past we've travelled together on shoots to Israel several times, to Morocco, Greece,Turkey & Italy.
This trip to was a quick one to Istanbul for a 3 hour 'money shot'  with the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia in the background. 
The Hagia is one of the 8 wonders of the world, and a former church, now a mosque. It is wild going to Turkey and realizing that this 
was the cradle of Christianity, now thoroughly Muslim.  With Epicenter and other projects (  we are doing 
our best to illuminate this issue. 
Happily, there was a Starbucks in the shadow of the Blue Mosque.
