We are supposed to travel to Istanbul for a family vacation this month. This has not been an easy
time to make plans with the Taksim Square demonstrations and now, a Worldwide Travel Alert, and closure of embassies across the Muslim world. Very tough.
What do others think? I am curious. So disappointed. We afraid to visit tourist areas like the Grand Bazaar, etc. for our safety.
What a way to ruin a vacation. We are so nervous and afraid.
Would welcome views of others about safety in Istanbul. Or should we just pack it in and cancel and come another time?
