    • Willow: Like if I'm old and blue-haired, and I turn the corner in Istanbul, and there you are...
      Istanbul is the most crowded and well-known culture city of Turkey. Before it was renamed after being taken over by the turks, it was Constantinople, aka Byzantium, the centerpiece of the Byzantine Empire, which was the successor to the Roman Empire. As such, it has been a crossroads for much of human activity since the time of Christ. In the 50s and 60s it was of strategic significance in the Cold War.
