This past October, a few friends and I joined an Overseas Adventure Travel tour of Turkey. Among our many excursions, we spent some time in the old section of Istanbul visiting the magnificent Topkapi Palace, the center of Ottoman rule from 1290 to 1843. But my best shot was taken at an unscheduled detour. While walking to the Grand Bazaar, I slipped into a small cemetery. There I spotted this resourceful feline lapping from an urn filled with fresh rain water. Turkish delight, indeed.
