Flying from Detroit to Istanbul

The surprise at the Detroit airport was the line of 10 armed guards in the jetway, interrogating and scrutinizing the passengers as they were boarding the plane. I haven’t seen that before, but maybe because we left the day after 9/11.

The flight to Amsterdam was uneventful and so was the connecting flight to Istanbul on KLM, except that we were served food twice on the 3 hour flight. That doesn’t happen any more in the USA.

After checking into the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Istanbul, we had a wonderful dinner and discussion with the other members of the group. Tomorrow is packed with interesting activities, so more photos to follow, but here are a few from today.
