Normal day in Istanbul. We get up, do our morning thing, and commute to work. Morning is mostly normal with some nice Turkish tea. Oh, I should blog about that. Anyway... Late afternoon rolls around, and so do 3 buses.
Our theory is that the local stadium was putting on a football (soccer) game. Although Turkey is a democratic nation, the strong hand of the government isn't very far away. So what happened while you were at the office?
