1453 and all that

It doesn't get much better than this. Here I am walking up to the Hagia Sofia in Istanbul this morning...

Afterwards, we walked over to the Sultanahmet Mosque (the "Blue Mosque") through the park and fountains, in beautiful sunshine, pausing only to fend off the legions of carpet sellers. Later on we're going to a cocktail reception on the roof of the hotel, which has a fantastic view over Istanbul, and then after dinner we've got tables booked at a bar to watch the Champions League Final between Arsenal and Barcelona.

Working out

A friend of mine pointed me to Music 2 Work 2. It's a fun idea: music specifically composed to be on the background while you're working. Not muzak, but music that is supposed to help you focus. While I was working yesterday, I was listening to an album of cover versions of AC/DC favourites by female country & western singers on acoustic guitars. Probably not as conducive to getting anything done. Anyway, I came, I listened and I purchased. Check it out.
