No, not Perseus, the other guy

Travelling from Vienna to İsmir on Turkish Air on Monday was an unexpected delight, but I'll admit I was a bit skeptical about our journey from there to İstanbul today flying on Pegasus Air. After careful consideration of the flight plan showed we'd be nowhere in the vicinity of Mt. Olympus, though, Annie and I boarded happily (careful to fasten our safety belts.) It's just as well — after 3 days tramping (and traipsing) around the 7 churches of Revelation, Ephesus, Ἔφεσος, the tomb of St. John, etc., I slept soundly through the (reportedly) uneventful 45-minute flight.

So, here we are in a pretty swank hotel in İstanbul, full to the brim with delicious homemade Iranian food from members of a local church, and ready to turn in for the night to get another early start tomorrow.

POST SCRIPTVM: Photo is from a different trip, but it's really getting into the spirit of the thing.
