So far today, ELA has taken you around to some of Istanbul’s more magnificent attractions: the beautiful Blue Mosque, the enduring Hagia Sophia, the Yeni Cami Mosque and we took you for a cruise along the Bosphorus.

What you didn’t see? How we got to those places.  Between the busses, trams, civilian automobiles and taxis that drive as if their passengers are going into labor, walking around Istanbul is like living inside of the hardest Frogger level ever created.

Though the bumpers and beeps may be daunting to common folk like Slam and I, Olympiacos’ Kyle Hines and Kostas Kaimakoglou do their best work when differently colored jerseys start to surround them.
