Not Istanbul (or Constantinople)

Istanbul was our destination
Now our holiday has become a staycation
Our flight's been cancelled; much consternation
Why can't we go to Istanbul as planned?
'Cuz a volcano erupted in Iceland...


By this time today, we were supposed to be in Turkey at the beginning of a week long trip that would take us around Istanbul and Cappadocia. Unfortunately, Eyjafjallajökull had other plans for us.


So we're now in the process of cancelling hotels, flights, and tours and deciding how to spend our days instead. At least we are in the comfort of our home with a shiny new bathroom... Still disappointing!
