Educators especially: I encourage you to use anything you find here that is useful to your mission educating people about Earth science. E-mail me if it would help to have a larger or higher-resolution version of any of the images.
Lola is just trying to tell you to get out of Istanbul quickly…it is an interesting city, but the rest of Turkey has so much to offer with out the 10+million other people and their cars.

Enjoy your trip in Turkey. I’ll be going there in June.
