The apartment I rented in Istanbul has fleas. Yes, fleas. So while my apartment was getting flea bombed this morning I went out and explored old town Istanbul. I went to the Egyptian Bazaar, the Grand Bazaar, the Blue Mosque and the New Mosuque. I also walked across the Galata Bridge two times, sweat my way around the old city walls and then returned to my apartment by way of the Galata Tower, Taksim Squuare and the European shopping district. Does my apartment still have fleas? It’s too soon to tell.
