Cat nap in the Aya Sofya

I took an awful lot of photos of sleeping cats in Istanbul, where I went as an extension to an academically funded summer. Against my better judgement, I took a bus there from Athens (a sixteen hour trip). To my surprise, it was the most comfortable and enjoyable bus ride ever. It was swankier than any domestic American flight. There was an attendant who passed out snacks, bottles of water, cups of tea and satin cushions to sleep on at bed time. She even periodically sprinkled our hands with lemon cologne. Listen up, megabus, you ain’t got nothing on Turkish buses. More on this later.
