i guess we all bring our own experience with us when we travel.  i was
just talking to someone yesterday about personal space and boundaries
- eg my level of anxiety on public transport etc as i am not used to
crowds... i guess in Canberra where I live there is very little
traffic and sometimes the city centre is completely empty! also we
rarely even see police on the streets, let alone the scary ones with
big guns and riot gear!!

all this aside i love Istanbul - it is a incredible city - here is a
