More videos from Turkey

Thought I'd share a couple more videos from our recent travels through Turkey. The first is a snippet from a performance by Uninvited Jazz Band. These dudes were playing on Istiklal Street, near Taksim Square. And as you can see from this June 6th video, they managed to convey some sense of the craziness going on just down the road.

The second is a world away from the protests of Taksim: a video from our Cappadocia hot air balloon ride. Scheduling snafus, gray skies, and a crowded gondola meant nothing once we were aloft over those strangely beautiful rock formations. Among many Turkish highlights, the chance to float with Jenny over Cappadocia was probably the best part of our trip.
