None too soon, we touched down smoothly at the International Airport of Istanbul. I was ever so thankful to discover that all of the signs were written in Turkish and English, so navigating to my luggage, through security, and to a bathroom was no trouble at all. Then after waiting in a very long line for a tourist visa, which required only my passport, $20.00, and about 2 seconds, my time in Turkey began!
